The bulky camera that could

The bulky camera that could

Marty’s photo of the day #4111: For the last month or so, I’ve been exclusively posting photos I took in the United States. It’s time to return to posting photos I took all over the world. I shot this white-lipped tree frog in Queensland, Australia, twenty years ago. At the time, digital photography was in […]

Photographing prairie dogs

Photographing prairie dogs

Marty’s photo of the day #4110: Last month, in the American Prairie Reserve, I shot almost one hundred prairie dog photos. Ultimately, I will only post two or three of them. Many photos are nearly identical, but since I never use a tripod, a close inspection of a series of shots may have one where […]

Frankenfurter, is that you?

Frankenfurter, is that you?

Marty’s photo of the day #4109: No, this isn’t a spaceship from the planet Krichardia, or the giant lips of Dr. Frankenfurter, returning to sing one more time. Instead, it’s a sunset as seen from Antelope Island in Utah. Distant mountains, hidden by smoke, create the optical illusion.

Walking on water

Walking on water

Marty’s photo of the day #4107: In this photo Nellie and I have a difference of opinion: I’m trying to teach her how to walk on water, but she’d rather we play with the great stick she found! (Photographed on the Judith River in the American Prairie Reserve)

Pronghorns and antelopes

Pronghorns and antelopes

Marty’s photo of the day #4105: Pronghorns, bison, and coyotes were animals Deb and I saw in both parts of our split American Prairie Reserve (Montana) and Antelope Island (Utah) vacation last month. Of course, the animal in today’s photo, correctly called a pronghorn in Montana, would commonly be called an antelope on Antelope Island. […]

Flowers along the Judith River

Flowers along the Judith River

Marty’s photo of the day #4104: I photographed these unusual flowers last month, along the Judith River in the American Prairie Reserve (Montana). Note that they have both green and purplish petals. My wife and I went through multiple books and websites that featured Montana wildflowers and couldn’t come up with an ID, but I […]

High prairie view

High prairie view

Marty’s photo of the day #4101: The prairie is not always flat. I shot this photo last month in the American Prairie Reserve of Montana. Deb (wife), Nellie (dog), and I hiked rolling prairie that climbed up to this magical spot, where we could overlook a valley that we had all to ourselves. The only […]
