The Newspaper Photographer

The photographer for a large national newspaper was assigned to get photos of an enormous forest fire. Smoke at the scene was too thick to get any good shots, so he frantically called his home office to hire a plane.”It will be waiting for you at the airport!” he was assured by his editor.

“It will be waiting for you at the airport!” he was assured by his editor.

As soon as he got to the small, rural airport, sure enough: a plane was warming up near the runway. The photographer jumped in with his equipment and yelled, “Let’s go! Go, go, go!

The pilot nodded and swung the plane into the wind and soon they were in the air.

“Fly over the north side of the fire,” said the photographer, “and make three or four low level passes.”

“Why?” asked the pilot.

“Because I’m going to take pictures! I’m a photographer, and photographers take pictures!” said the photographer with great exasperation and impatience.

“Do you mean to say,” the pilot asked after a long pause, “that you’re not the flight instructor?”

Small Creeks and Waterfalls

Art Prints

Some of the most peaceful and relaxing places on the planet are small creeks and waterfalls. Most are  not crowded so you can literally have the place for yourself. They are secluded and out of the way, as a result, many times wildlife can be observed in their natural habitat without them seeing you.

This small waterfall is located on a creek named Harvey’s Branch near the tiny village of Oldenburg in southeastern Indiana. Harvey’s Branch, obviously named after someone named Harvey, who lives nearby, follows Harveys Branch Road beginning on the northern edge of Oldenburg and ends in Peppertown, a few miles north. It is a narrow gravel road, but very picturesque, especially in the autumn when the leaves display their fall colors.

The Flume, located in New Hampshire, is a beautiful place to enjoy a few moments while taking a break while touring the lovely scenery of New England.

The Flume was discovered in 1808 by 93-year-old  “Aunt” Jess Guernsey when she accidently came upon it while fishing. She had trouble convincing her family of the marvelous discovery, but eventually persuaded others to come and see for themselves. At that time, a huge egg-shaped boulder hung suspended between the walls. The rock was 10 feet (3m) high and 12 feet (3.6m) long. A heavy rainstorm in June of 1883 started a landslide that swept the boulder from its place. It has never been found. The same storm deepened the gorge and formed Avalanche Falls.

 

Ruby Falls, located near Chattanooga Tennesee is equally inviting. It is located near many historical Civil War sites in the southern Tennessee, northern Georgia area.

Taking Photographs on a Family Vacation

Sell Art Online

Written by:  Gary Wonning

We often assume to photography wildlife we have to travel to some far off land, leaving our families and the comforts of home behind.

As I emphasized in my ebook, “How to make money in photography“, this just isn’t the case.

Nothing could be farther from the truth. If capturing hundreds of photos of exotic wildlife, then maybe you would need to travel great distances. However, if your time and money is limited and you need or desire to combine your photography interests with a family vacation, you can still get some fantastic photos of wildlife close to home or your favorite vacation spot.

Such was my dilemma during a recent trip to Michigan. Visiting with family always has a high priority and many times photography has to take a back seat. I naturally wanted to get some quality photos for my blogs and my website.

We were traveling by train which further complicated the issue, taking photos through a window  from a  moving train doesn’t lend itself to producing high-quality photos. Hoping for the best I grabbed my camera gear and could only imagine how things would turn out.

While it is true, I didn’t get very many good quality photos through the windows of the train, all was not lost. I did get some decent photos I can use for my blogs. The biggest problem while on the train was the glare normally associated with photographing through a window. A polarizer will help, but in many cases that leads to distortion and only slightly reduced the glare.

As I said, the trip was mainly about seeing family and friends, however, in spite of some cloudy weather, I did manage to get a few quality photographs of wildlife, flowers and scenic shots.

At  the end of our vacation, we visited the Stoney Brook Preserve near Detroit Michigan. I knew nothing of the area, I didn’t know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised when we arrived.

The weather was extremely hot and I was pleased to find I could take photos from inside the building through a glass window with no distortion or glare. An added benefit, the birds and animals scurried about unaware we were so close to them.

I was even able to photograph two squirrels fighting over the food in  a bird feeder.

Walking the grounds, I was able to get a few quality nature photos as well, proving that regardless of the circumstances, it is always possible to come home with many useable photos, worthy of being displayed on anyone’s wall.

Lying off in the distance from Bell Rock, Thunder Mountain, or Capitol Butte the name given it by early settlers looms over the beautiful city of Sedona. Towering nearly two thousand feet above the town below, it is an impressive and beautiful site, beckoning one to climb one of the many trails that lead to the top.

church and state

There has been much debate over the years about what the founding fathers meant about the separation of church and state. In recent times there has been much disinformation about how they actually believed, especially George Washington. In this short Ebook the author tries to explain how they actually felt.
