Ok, for the rest of the story, er process… I created a video that shows 3 panorama post-processing methods I use on my image(s) to end up with
When traveling in areas where there are wide vistas or just a lot of something spread out in front of me,
There are some events you just have to go back to year after year and the Brooksville Raid is one of those! This is one of the larger Civil War Re-enactments in Florida, in terms of participants and spectators. Every year they put on a great show and
One of the rules of travel/landscape/bird/nature photography is go back more than once. Go back for different lighting, seasons, weather, just go back! Circle B Bar Reserve is one of those places that I go back to, over and over. As the seasons, change the species of birds change so you never know
The Celery Fields, just east of Sarasota, Florida is around 360 acres owned by Sarasota County and is used as a primary flood mitigation zone.

I recently attended the Mike Moats Macro Summit in Seekonk, MA and setup my flight late in the day after the conference so I would have some time in Providence, RI. The Roger Williams Park Zoo was on the way to the airport so I decided to stop there. The animals and the fall colors gave me some
After a week in Maine, Andy saved one of the most iconic spots in Acadia National Park, Bass Harbor Head Light, as the final stop of our epic trip! After an afternoon stop at Asticou Azalea Garden (Part 11) and
On the last day of our week in Maine, after spending the morning in Wonderland (part 10), we had some time, so we decided to stop by an interesting garden we had passed several times in our travels around the area. Asticou Azalea Garden is in Northeast Harbor.
It is a public garden, owned and conserved by the Land & Garden Preserve. We pulled in to the tree lined parking lot, pulled out our cameras and
