During an unexpected chance to experience Africa, a seed was planted. Nurtured by subsequent forays into wild places, this photographer was born.

Jacques Cousteau said “People protect what they love.” And we’ve all heard that “A picture is worth a thousand words.” So, enough with this. My photography says the rest. Thanks for listening.

    Wonderful image Owed. Amazing how you captured the detail of the hare against all that white snow. Not an easy feat. Excellent. Congrats on your well deserve feature. Kathy :)

  • Oh, thank you so very much for your kind words Kathy. A wonderful wildlife photographer named Daniel J. Cox accompanies guest on this Cape Churchill expedition. Perfect opportunity for me to learn from a master how to read and use my camera’s histogram in the midst of all that snow!

    I love the White Hare against the White Snow. Perfect Shot and a Instant Fav. for ME !!


  • So very nice to hear you like this guy! He blends into the snow so well, it’s hard to tell where the snow ends and the hare begins. No wonder I find Nature so fun! Thank you very much Paulette.
