About the Book
This books contains images from a December, 2011 visit to the national wildlife refuge and surrounding area. We experienced dust storms, rain, a blizzard, and freezing temperatures. But nothing kept us from getting the photos.
Bird watching, cultural travel, and photography have taken my wife and me to six continents and over fifty countries. Exploring the world has also helped me greater appreciate the diversity and unique beauty of our home in Grapevine, Texas. I enjoy photographing the natural world of flora and fauna, landscapes, and people. As my skills as a photographer have increased, I have became more interested in the details of composition, lighting, and photographing different subjects. Though initially reluctant to photograph people because it seemed too intrusive, I now especially enjoy the challenge of capturing an expression, mood, or perspective in candid street portraits. My coffee table books attempt to capture and present all of these elements in an aesthetically pleasing way. I offer photography classes through the Grapevine and Southlake, TX Park and Recreation departments and also offer small group and private lessons.
