Fun at the Arizona State Fair

The Arizona State Fair began in early October and continues for the whole month. For years I didn’t go to the fair because my vestibular system couldn’t handle the rides, but when I got into photography, I found a new reason to go to the fair…actually two reasons. 🙂

The Early Morning Grizzly on the Beach

Image: Grizzly bear at Lake Clark National Park, Alaska. Nikon D500, Nikkor 200-500mm at 500mm, f/6.3, 1/640 sec, ISO 800, on tripod.

One of the first mornings at Lake Clark National Park, we spotted a grizzly bear lying on the beach in beautiful light. The tides were low so the mud flats were exposed, making it easier for the bear to hunt for clams. This one must have had a fully belly and chose to sleep peacefully in the warm sun. We experimented with various shots and thought she might stay still for awhile but that was not the case.

My Antarctica Photo/Video Exhibition Coming in 2020!

Image: Emperor Penguins, Snow Hill Island, Antarctica. Nikon D750, Nikkor 24-70 mm at 28 mm, f/16, 1/250 sec, ISO 400, hand-held.

What a week this has been! In other news, I just found out that the owner of Art Intersection Gallery asked me to do a 3 month exhibition next year (April 18-July 11, 2020) of my Antarctica journey at Gallery 4 at the Gilbert Historical Museum. This gallery showcases artwork with strong social, environmental and cultural messages. I’m beyond honored and have been scrambling the past few days to provide a write-up and preliminary images for the announcement of the exhibition. In addition to a full room of photography from the trip, we have plans to show some of the videos I took of the experience including Emperor penguin chicks interacting with each other and of the dangerous journey across the Drake Passage in which we got caught in a storm and thrown (literally) around the ship. Also I was asked by the museum program coordinator to speak on April 25, 2020, World Penguin Day, about the Emperor penguin’s natural history and how climate change is affecting them. Please save the date! Here’s the announcement of my exhibition along with a few photos that I haven’t shown anyone yet:

The Red Fox of Lake Clark

Image: Red Fox at Lake Clark National Park, Alaska. Nikon D500, Nikkor 200-500mm at 280 mm, f/8.0, 1/1000 sec, ISO 800, hand-held.

While at Lake Clark National Park, we had the chance to photograph a few more wildlife species besides the grizzly bears. This red fox made its appearance the first morning we woke up and went outside. I found its den in some shrubbery right by the lodge and under my window! Initially it was a bit shy and went back into its hiding area when it heard some noise, but that wasn’t its last appearance….

Grizzlies in a Golden Light

Sunlight can be both a blessing and a curse. Both landscape and wildlife photographers often prefer to photograph in the soft light around sunrise and sunset to avoid the harsh shadows created by the bright light in the middle of the day. Wildlife photographers also avoid midday hours because animals tend to reduce activity during the day which doesn’t lend to dynamic images of animal behavior.
