Big Island Lava

Big Island Lava Late April and winging my way to Hilo with Tamra and Dale in search of lava, landscapes and tropical flora.  First up, a doors-off helicopter ride above the vast lava fields and macadamia nut orchards.  Whilst the chopper hovered low for photographs, the heat from the steaming lava just below was palpable.  The following afternoon involved a 7-mile trek across the hot and shade-less lava field in pursuit of molten lava flows. The smooth and ropy pahoehoe lava is mesmerizing.  Botanical gardens, black sand beaches, rain forests, volcanoes and the occasional loco moco at Cafe 100 made for a spectacular and fun week photographing on the Big Island.

Sage Grouse Saga

Sage Grouse Saga Three sensational days this Spring in Wyoming at the home of Betty & Ross enjoying the early morning sounds and sights of male Sage Grouse holding court on their traditional display ground, a lek.  Each morning well before sunrise found us on the edges of the lek, snug in our bag blind, long lenses aimed into the darkness.  Headlamps off and the games began – the noise of wings from all directions, some sounding like Harriers, others conjuring up images of the Spruce Goose.

It’s a Great Day!

It’s a Great Day! April 18th, 2012 and I'm really excited!  It's been a lot of hard work by the team helping me and the guys at Digital Waxworks to get this website on-line, but it has all been worth it.  Thanks to everyone involved - you know who you are!  Like all new websites, it is likely to have its glitches in the first few days, and there are still a few images to upload, so please be patient.  I don't yet know quite what will appear in this Blog in the future, but I intend to keep you posted on events in Yellowstone; provide some photography and Lightroom tips; share with you my adventures and things that catch my eye; and anything else that I think might interest you.In the meantime, I hope you find what you are looking for, but if not, please contact me using the Contact Page.  I look forward to hearing from you.  Cindy.
