Seeing NYC from the sky

Recently, I had the chance to fly around NYC via helicopter.  Thanks to the great staff at FLYNYON.   The day started off to be wonderful.  Not a cloud in the sky.  But, by 2 pm, mostly cloudy. Can’t change it, so I enjoyed the ride.  What is different about FLNYON is that you can […]

Miami after dark

I always enjoy photographing after the sun goes down. I also enjoy shooting HDR. It gives the images a different look. Some have a little and others are over-the-top. My images, my choice.

Below are just a few […]

Eye on a Gator

I was out in our neighbor when I saw his gator.   The coolest part of these images, at least to me, is there is a spider walking on his/her eyelid.  You can see it in the reflection in the water.  There is a LOT of detail in the image.   The gator was on […]
