Quality still images talk to you personally. They generate emotion. They marvel, they inform. They reveal details that few other mediums can.
They give you time to study, to explore, to take a deep breath, savor the moment.
Nature Photography is an exhilarating challenge. In the preparation for the shoot you are trying to anticipate the camera settings, the light, the elements of composition. Then you are in the moment and the shutter trips.
On to post capture processing and the images come to life. The pollen clinging to a Hummingbird's throat, the luxuriousness of the eyelashes on a Pronghorn Antelope, or the long sweep of New Mexico's Sandia Crest.
