For a while now, I've been trying to find a good banner to connect the blog and website together. After some consideration, I decided to go with a collage, as done by Shape Collage. I've also made a few other ones, here they are. Clicking on the picture will let you see it in higher resolution. For more, please click on one of the pictures, it'll take you to a gallery of all of the ones I've done so far. Hope you enjoy!

More Birds

Birds are a very hard creature to photograph. They can move very quickly, and are generally pretty startled. The lens of choice to photograph birds is a 400mm+, I only have a zoom lens with up to 135 (Times 1.6 for a crop, but still...) Still, I did try again, powered once again by, and I found a few more little guys. I hope I did them some justice... This whole exercise has taught me to be more more attentive to the beauty that surrounds us each and every day. Hope you enjoy!

Bird Identification

I've occasionally taken pictures of birds around southern Arizona, and have had a desire to identify them. With some help from, I've been able to identify 3 of them, which I've included pictures below. Hopefully I'll be able to add to my bird collection, especially when I get a better lens for it (My max focal length is currently 135mm, so...) Clicking on the photo will allow for you to see a fuller description.

Panoramics of sunsets

So I have been trying to get better at taking panoramic, and so I took several more pictures of sunsets. I've still got a bit of work to make the seams better, but I thought these are finally good enough to go ahead and post some of them. I've also posted a few more sunset pictures, as they were quite popular.
