I just got back from doing a fun, all day seminar at a Canon Explorer of Light event with the Great Plains Nature Photographers in McPherson, Kansas- I lectured on Nature's Elusive beauty and The Amazing Night Sky. I'd like to thank Canon as well as Coordinators Jim & Cindy Griggs for the opportunity to share with others my passion for nature photography.
While in McPherson, I was invited to Maxwell Wildlife Refuge fundraising event with Jim, Cindy and Jeff Heidel, the event organizer, before my lecture. A group of photographers joined us to photograph the wild bison and elk that roam the refuge. All funds raised for the event went to help support the refuge! It was supposed to be a sunset shoot but the heavy fog created more of a Bison in the Mist mood! http://www.maxwellwildliferefuge.com
