Trails in the Laramie Foothills

I recently went for a drive north of Fort Collins with a friend to do some night photography. We found below freezing temperatures and 35+ mph winds. Knowing the odds were stacked against me I persisted and came up with this result.

I used an SB-800 strobe handheld and manually popped off a few on full power to illuminate the foreground a bit and hopefully add some definition to combat blur from the wind. I am glad we stayed, it was an invigorating and fun wind! ;-)))

Gazing GBH at Bosque

Gazing GBH at Bosque, originally uploaded by Fort Photo.

A photograph from my new Nikon D300 of a Great Blue Heron at Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico. If it's been awhile since I've posted to my blog and you wonder what I've been up to be sure to check my photostream on flickr where I update most often.
