Play Hard But Play Safe

Portrait

Before getting down to the business of spending the day packing up more of my apartment, posting items for sale on eBay, and staying ahead of the game by writing more future photo articles for the National Parks Traveler, I thought I’d post this photo with a link (click the pic) to a great story in today’s edition of the Traveler about playing it safe when visiting a national park.  This article can be applied to really any wild place you happen to visit, be it a national park, national monument, state park, or just some wild place you spot while driving along that you want to explore more while capturing some cool pictures.  And no, the safety tips are not just about bears.  They range the gamut and it’s worth a read.

What Ken Burns and Others have to Say about The National Parks Traveler

Sunrise And Moonset Over Many Glacier

I check the National Parks Traveler every day to see what new articles have been published.  One of the articles this morning deals with what other well-known authors, journalists, filmmakers, and other national park-related entities have to say about this non-profit, editorially-independent website.

I know, it sounds almost like overkill, doesn’t it:  3 posts in a single May morning about the National Parks Traveler.  Well, I’m proud of this site and my photographic and journalistic contributions to this site and want to share that other well-knowns have the same opinion.

Three Days In Heaven: Glacier National Park

Moonset And Sunrises Over Heavens Peak

Every year, the National Parks Traveler publishes four seasonal guides to the national parks.  One of my images is featured on the cover of the summer 2017 Essential Guide, and I have a photo spread and feature story about spending 3 days in Glacier National Park.  Click on the photo to be taken to the article.

On a side note, I will be traveling back to Glacier NP this September, along with my Canons and a brand new medium format camera, the Pentax 645z.  I plan on sharing the resulting photos as well as my thoughts about the Pentax and using medium format for landscape photography.

Why I Believe in the National Parks Traveler and Support National Park Journalism

Sunrise Over Swiftcurrent

Not too long ago, the independent site that reports on all things National Parks-related was designated a non-profit.  I wrote an article this past week on why I believe in this site and why those of you who love our national parks, monuments, seashores, historical sites should believe in The National Parks Traveler too.  Click on the photo to be taken to my article.
