I am donating 100% of the profit from any sales on this website to the awesome High Desert Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation non-profit organization here in my new home town in Oregon to help cover the cost of care and treatment for injured and orphaned wildlife

and my friend’s local horse/animal sanctuary in our former hometown in texas:: Remington Acres, a non- profit organization I am still involved with:

the Remington Acres Website

If you make a purchase from my site and have a preference as to which of these two organizations the proceeds from your sale should be donated to, please send me a note and I will insure that happens.

Just a little info about me: Germany is my birthplace but we’ve moved around the world quite a bit, spent the last few years living in Singapore, Texas and now after 25 years back in God’s Country – Oregon.

My passions are travel, animals and wildlife (horses, cats and anything else that has hoofs, paws, wings etc) and of course photography.Being able to share images from our beautiful planet with everyone is such a pleasure.

Been running around with a camera in my hand since I was 10, but didn’t really get more seriously interested in photography until I joined webshots in 2005 (closed down a while back, sadly). It is then when I realized what an uplifting and encouraging experience it is to actually share your photos with people who are like- minded and enjoy viewing them. And what a pleasure discovering other photographer’s work and learning in the process.

Cameras I use: Sony DSC-R1, with an awesome stationary 24-120mm Carl Zeiss lens, a Panasonic DMZ-TZ3, with a 28-280mm Leica lens and have recently added a Nikon D90 with a 28 – 300mm Nikkor Lens.

I have had no formal photography training- my pictures come straight from the heart and reflect the love and admiration for the subjects I capture. I am always willing to watch, listen and learn. Feedback and critizism are most welcome, improvement suggestions are invited.

Thanks for the visit and for caring!
Marita

Could you please answer a question for me?

I’ve only started joining groups a few weeks ago. How do I know if an image is “rejected” by a group host? / Many groups require approval, so the image will be awaiting approval before an image is added to the group and is then added within a few days usually at the latest. / But I’ve submitted a few photos to a specific hi-quality group, making sure I follow all the guide…
