Since retirement I purchased a quality camera and started photographing. Due to time and raising family my desire for photography had to take a backseat to these daily pleasant life efforts. I took a basic photography course and photoshop course at a local collage and started pursuing subjects in the outdoors. Recently I got the nerve and took the step of entering a calendar photo contest for the Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency. Of the ten photos entered I was notified that two made it all the way to the semi finals but failed to be selected. I was very happy to have two make it that far. Thought Id share these two semi finals entries with friends here. Hope you enjoy them. In closing, I am looking forward to next years entry opprotunity.


The blue heron was on Kentucky Lake and the elk was from the elk and bison center at LBL.

Thankyou for the compliment. The spring green color in the plant combined with the freshness of deep clay colors on the bank due to a recent rain really make the heron pop in the pic.

Never realized a lifetime of hunting and fishing would assist in photography. Also the ability to delete to trash can poor shots is a blessing. Shooting the old film cameras would break my piggy bank. Lol.
