I started out as an artist, became a pilot, and ended up where I am now: nature photographer and educator. Being a pilot allowed me to observe the Earth and humanity’s impact on it from 30,000 feet for many years. It allowed me to experience different cultures and to see the world through many lenses.

    The curves and lines and the play of lights and darks originally caught my eye (in the thumbnail), then the flow (medium size), then the detail in the eye and feathers (large size) capped it all off. Beautifully seen and captured!

  • Thank you A.M. for sharing these details, the kind words, and for adding this image to your favorites :-)
