Rocks and Arches - National Park Weekend

Just spent the weekend in Moab and visiting the Arches and Cayonlands National Parks.  I would have never thought photographing rocks would have been so interesting and creative.  Up early to catch the sunrise and trying to be be the first photog waiting in the cold and dark.   Here are a few of my favorites.

Last of the winter sport season

It was good to catch the last game of the season with some freshman basketball last evening.   Onto the official start of the spring season and lacrosse games.

Congratulations to Haley Skarupa on her section to the USA Hockey team and her Olympic dream.  Here is a photo from her high school playing days with the Washington Pride.  Too bad the WAPO got the photo credit wrong.

Just like shooting a football game..kind of

I was asked to join a friend to photograph the eagles that meet along the Susquehanna river this time each year.   Why not, something I have never done before and always in for trying to capture something new.   Having never photographed birds in flight, I thought I would approach like a football game.  Fast shutter speed and not really knowing the next play.  

Must have been 100+ other photogs with the same idea.  I was definitely not prepared and not the right gear.   Some of the other photographers were serious about their nature photography and it showed with their gear.   My monopod set-up worked OK, and had to make the best with what I have (I guess the best set-up is a Gimbal mount for the long lens).  

For the most part the eagles were not active this day but I was able to get a few.   Looking forward to going again next year.

New PowerPlay Photography Site v2.0

I just finished the new PowerPlay Photography site upgrade.  The old site was based on Shutterfly Pro and after 10 years it was time for an upgrade (since Shutterfly canceled their Pro service program).   Still needs a few fine tuning, but it is up and working.
