Starlight Lighthouse

This past Sunday morning, really, really early in the morning, long before the sun was even close to rising, I ventured out onto New Hampshire’s frozen and windy Lake Sunapee. I, along with two camera wielding friends, Garrett Evans, and Tony Baldasaro were out to photograph a lighthouse under the stars. Nothing adds that little extra something to your lighthouse photos like adding the Milky Way to the mix.

It was cold and windy, so windy Tony had to chase down my camera bag, with my Canon 17-40 and 70-200 lenses inside it, as it blew across the lake. Thanks, Tony! if I had been out there alone I’d still be looking for it.

Not long after the rescue of the runaway camera bag, the wind decided that it was time to blow over my tripod. With my camera on it, lucky me! The camera survived…

Waves of Geese

Taking Off

This goes with my last photograph and video.  This was taken at Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge as thousands of geese took off at the same time.  This picture was taken early as the huge wave began to lift from the water.

Waves of Canadian Geese

Here is a video I shot last weekend of a huge wave of Canadian Geese taking off from one of the marshes at Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge in Missouri.  I had my camcorder set up while I was snapping pictures when all of the sudden all of the geese took off in a wave.  This is one of the most fascinating experiences I have ever had doing wildlife photography.

Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge sits in northwest Missouri and is known for it’s large concentration of Bald Eagles during the winter and spring.  It is also known for the large number of waterfowl that migrate through the area before and after winter. Here is a close up of a large group of thousands of Canadian geese that took off at the same time on a recent trip to the refuge.
