Foto Friday – The Grand Canyon

In February I had the opportunity to visit the Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona.   When I was younger, I’d been a few times but I’d never been out since I got into photography. The trip was more of a scouting trip than anything, but I can say my scouting turned into a number of fantastic images.

A sampling of these images are below. You can see more on my Photography site – imagesbyericbrown.com.

Foto Friday – Pika Rocky Mountain National Park

Pika Rocky Mountain National Park

While in Rocky Mountain National Park last year, I stumbled upon an area perfect for Pikas. I sat myself down next to some rocks and waited. After about 15 minutes I started hearing the ‘squeeks’ that you’d hear from these cute little animals. Quickly thereafter, I started seeing the scurrying around and spend about an hour grabbing photos of them.   The below is one of those cute Pikas.

About Pikas:

A key characteristic of the American pika is its temperature sensitivity; death can occur after brief exposures to ambient temperatures greater than 77.9 °F.  Therefore, the range of the species progressively increases with elevation in the southern extents of its distribution.  In Canada, populations occur from sea level to 9,842 feet, but in New Mexico, Nevada, and southern California, populations rarely exist below 8,202 feet.

You can learn more about this great little animals here.

A few weeks ago, I traveled to Sedona Arizona for a few days. While there, I was able to sneak out and get a few sunrise photos. Here’s the first of a few that i’ll be sharing over the next few weeks.

When life gives you a little fog…

It’s been a bit quiet around here the past week. I’ve been doing some traveling over the holidays and enjoying some time with my wife and our cameras.

This morning, we went out to one of the best locations in the area for bird watching and photography. We were pretty sure we wouldn’t see much nor get any good photographs due to the very thick fog that had rolled in overnight. Rather than give up and go back once we saw how bad the fog really was, we decided to get out and walk around a bit and just give it a shot…maybe we’d be able to find something good in the fog.

I’m glad we decided to give it a shot…we saw quite a few Herons, Egrets, Pelicans and other shorebirds.  While the fog kept us from getting those ‘textbook perfect’ shots, I think I was able to grab a few great ones. Here’s a few shots from this morning. Enjoy.

This post is just a friendly reminder that you don’t always get the perfect weather but you can still make good things happen with whatever weather you have.
