JHP Newsletter - 2004, No. 2, 30 November
It's been a busy month since I chatted with you last. I finished going through the last of my slides, taken during a road trip this summer from CO to AK and back, and scanned-in a lot of images from that trip as well as previous trips.
Web: New Galleries and Images
I've restructured the Gallery to have 12 categories instead of six: Earth, Sky, Water, Fur (N. America), Fur (Foreign), Feathers, Cold-Blooded, Insects, Flowers & Plants, Details & Abstract, Man-Made (Large), and Man-Made (Small). The number of images now online is roughly double what it used to be.
Travel: Polar Bears of Churchill
I spent three days at the beginning of the month shooting polar bears in Churchill, Manitoba, Canada. I traveled with Joseph Van Os Photo Safaris, and had a wonderful group of traveling companions. The local fauna was interesting as well. We saw, and shot, several bears sparring, several mother's-with-cubs, arctic fox, red fox, arctic hare, and willow ptarmigan. The weather was very cooperative. We had almost a day and a half of sunshine, which is extremely rare because there's usually solid overcast.
