Wyoming Landscape Images

This article shares a selection of Wyoming landscape images that were captured handheld during a self-drive photography tour we did through South Dakota, Wyoming, Utah and Colorado a few years ago. We were on a pretty tight schedule and covered 10,187 km (~6,330 miles) during our 26 day trip. Unfortunately we didn’t have much time to spend in Wyoming.

Nikon 1 V2 Butterfly Images

I recently spent some time revisiting some of my Nikon 1 V2 butterfly images, and reprocessing them in post.

Irish Mallard In-Flight

This short article features a selection of photographs of an Irish mallard in-flight. These were captured during our photography field trip to Ireland in the spring of 2019. While the main objective of our trip was to capture landscape and rural images, I took a Nikon 1 V3 fitted with a 1 Nikkor CX 70-300 mm f/4.5-5.6 with me just in case I had the opportunity to photograph some wildlife.
