“Glimpses of Nature” is an attempt to share an experience. This experience is one of great joy, sometimes sadness, and the apprehension that unless we act now, our children will be bereft of this lasting legacy. They say an image is worth a thousand words and I have used this visual medium to bring you closer to nature. Nature photography is an art acquired through painstaking effort and perseverance. Having the best cameras and lenses alone is not enough. It requires a thorough understanding of the technical aspects of digital photography and its field applications.
