This photo of reindeer from above the arctic circle in Sweden got a full two-page spread on the inside cover.



And this photo of my son Brendan standing in awe of the night sky graced their page on an article on the heavens in the same issue.



Fall Edition 2021 (vol 28, No 3)

I shot this photo of a lepoard in Kenya a few years ago.  The magazine used the full picture in their article, and a smaller image on the front cover of the magazine.

These ducklings are a few hours old having just hatched - and yet - they are already fully enjoying themselves in our koi pond.


Nice Honor from

I just heard that one of my photos I submitted to National Geographic for their photo contest is now in the top running.  This is a shot from my trip to Antarctica last year.  The diver on the left is National Geographic photographer David Doublet and the kayaker is my sister Karen.  




Virginia Wildlife honor

I received a full page photo in the July/August 2017 issue of Virginia Wildlife for this photo.  This fox hung around our house every day for a few months - then just disapeared one day.
