New Image Galleries on Website

One of the downsides to all my traveling lately is the lack of updating my website’s image galleries on a timely basis. I get many comments to that effect quite often, both in person and via email. Well now that I’ve had some time to catch my breath as well as some quality time in my home office, I’ve been able to catch up.

You can judge for yourself as to whether or not the effort was worth it: Earth and Light Galleries

Image Round Up From Namibia

I am perpetually behind when it comes to editing images and at the moment, I may be setting a personal record. I still don’t have everything completed from Namibia, no images from my trip Roan Mountain in North Carolina and Tennessee, and I am currently in California. Who knows when I’ll have the time to get around to these.

But here are some of the Namibia highlights. It already seems like so long ago so it was nice to revisit some of these special moments. Enjoy!

By the way, our Wild Namibia photography workshop and tour on May 25 РJune 6, 2014 has been filling up very quickly and we are getting close to having it filled. For more information click here.

CPCD #7 – Out of Africa…Almost

This is the cheapest, most thoughtless CPCD ever: an iPhone capture of my camera LCD after an evening shoot a few days ago.

After a short flight from Windhoek, Namibia to Johannesburg, South Africa, Ian and I are now in the middle of an eight-hour layover before our flight to Washington DC. As much as I’m looking forward to getting home, I’d rather scale a giant mountain of hot, steaming rhino dung than to jump aboard another long flight right now. But I guess there’s no good alternative.

There’s lots to say about the previous two weeks but I’ll simply make it short and sweet: Namibia rocks!
