Welcome to Duluth!

A Return to Blogging

I’ve been missing from the blogasphere for awhile. I could blame it on many things but, I’ll just say, “That’s 2020!” I’m hoping to start making a return to my art, creating new images and sharing on my various media sites. I am hopeful that the remainder of this year and the new year provide more opportunities to get out and explore the world with my cameras. One fun thing that has changed in my tool bag for 2020 is I now have a drone. I invested in a DJI Mavic Air 2 this past summer and have been working at putting it to good use to capture images that I could not get being land based. Those images will be showing up in this blog starting now.

A Gallery of Images From the West

After a week on the road capturing images from the Oregon coast to Minnesota, I have created a gallery of photos on my website.  Rather than creating the same gallery on my blog, here is the link to the site: http://northernvisionsmedia.com/?page_id=2727

Under the Gaze of Eagles

NV5S0267-Edit

Across the Salmon River, north of Stanley, ID, and on the other side of the road, atop the power line, eagles had built an enormous nest and were tending to their young.

Mayflies and Mosquitoes

It would have been a much more peaceful evening if the mayflies hadn’t been in the middle of a major hatch and the mosquitoes hadn’t been so thick.  But, that’s northern Minnesota for you.

This will be my last post from Minnesota this month as I am headed to Oregon later this week for an extended photo trip.  I will be beginning with a sunset composition along the coast and then be driving back through the mountains, visiting Yellowstone and, I hope, Devil’s Tower.  I am also planning to shoot some prairie homesteads and wide open spaces in the Dakotas.
