Outdoor and Nature Photography The great outdoors holds boundless art. Outdoor or nature photography can lift your spirits and limitless photo compositions are always at hand. Outdoor and nature images speak to the soul – they evoke emotion and inspire one to reach for endless understanding and beauty. Nature photos remind us to take care of our earth and all the living things that inhabit it. Different seasons create different moods; and of course, different photo images. The sky shifts, the animals move, and the textures of rocks, leaves and grasses change.
Even though my re-entry into photography was within the rock concert genre, I have grown to love outdoor photography for the endless possibilities of capturing light. The best images are often acquired at the crack of dawn, such as my images of the American Bald Eagles at The Conowingo Dam in Maryland, the Snow Geese at Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge in Delaware, the Wolf Sanctuaries of Pennsylvania and New Jersey, the stark contrasts of dead trees against sunrises at Boneyard Beach in South Carolina, and the beauty of light-painted cherry blossoms at midnight along the Washington, D.C. Tidal Basin. In addition, outdoor photography is a rigorous task and nature is not always friendly; as I experienced when I shot rare images of a snow-draped Grand Canyon.
