In July 2013 I traveled to Le Claire, Iowa to photograph American White Pelicans at Lock and Dam 14 on the Mississippi River with a group organized by Mark Perry of MPEG. We had two days of wonderful weather. In addition to the pelicans, there were large numbers of Double Crested Cormorants competing for the fish at the dam. In this situation the cormorants have learned to eat their catch quickly to avoid being mobbed by pelicans trying to steal their catch.
North of Churchill on the barren tundra on the shore of Hudson Bay you find this wonderful oasis.
In Nov. 2014 I visited Old Car City in White, Georgia. It was a spectacular 2 days surrounded by fall color and cool, sunny weather. At first overwhelming to walk among some 4500 cars on 34 acres, one gradually becomes immersed in the many photo opportunities. I am anxious to return to try different techniques and discover more treasures on this property. I couldn't help but wonder about all the amazing stories and experiences attached to these old vehicles. Just walking among the vehicles is a very special experience.
