WordPress newbie first post

Hi there

Many thanks to Chad for helping me set up this blog.

This is an initial post to get things going. I am a photographer, based in Northern Ontario. As such I expect to post pictures along with words. I specialize in North American wildlife and landscapes, along with plants, gardens, abstracts and photo impressionism. I hope to post news, images from recent photo shoots and insights into how I do photography.

Currently I’m prepping for an extended trip out west, my second in four months. Brenda is staying home this time, minding the fort and the gardens. I’ve taken John Marriott’s offer to participate in his Orca tour http://blog.wildernessprints.com/2011/08/orca-and-humpback-photo-tour.html and I will be leaving Lively on Wednesday to travel to Vancouver Island. I hope to combine the Orca tour with some late summer mountain photography in both the US and Canada. Meanwhile, thousands of unprocessed digital image files remain in the backlog of the computer. Such is the life of a digital photographer. I can never keep up!

Here’s one or two shots from the May trip.

  3. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation however I in finding this topic to be really something which I think I would never understand. It kind of feels too complicated and very wide for me. I am taking a look forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
