No birds? Try "SEAWEED AS ART"! This scene caught my eye on a Saturday but it was clear and sunny, so I returned the next morning when cloudy skies reduced the contrast. Note the placement of the large boulder in the lower left foreground (which serves as a compositional anchor). The sky and water were selected in PhotoShop and darkened in levels. (Proper exposure for the dark green seaweed left the sky washed out but not over-exposed in the original image.)

MORE IPT KUDOS
I just wanted to say thanks for the amazing experience you shared with me and the other participants on the IPT at JBWR in August. You have a wonderful teaching methodology. I learned more about technique, composition, and birding in several days than I have managed to pick up in 10 years on my own. Having the ability to see your images and my images from the same location has been an incredible teaching tool for me. From that weekend, I have been able to identify many flaws in my technique and I have since been working to resolve them. I am doing my best to try to work more IPTís into my schedule. Thanks again for your time and your patience as an instructor. Best, Mark
THANKSGIVING AT BOSQUE
I am flying to Bosque on 21 November for the ninth straight year since Elaine's death on November 20, 1994. Each trip is somewhat of a pilgrimage to her memory and the wonderful years that we had together. The two IPTs have filled nicely. As of this very moment, there are 6 openings on the first IPT (NOV 23-25) and one vacancy (due to a cancellation) on the second (NOV 29-DEC 1). Friend and Digital & Photoshop expert Ellen Anon will be joining me as co-leader and will present a one-hour Photoshop Basics program on each tour.
As many of you know, I have, for the past several years, hosted a Thanksgiving Day Buffet lunch at the historic Val Verde Steakhouse in Socorro for birders, photographers and friends. The food is incredibly good, with tons of turkey and stuffing and yams and all the fixings as well as table-fuls of great desserts--save me lord! This year we will meet at 12:30 pm. All are invited. Bring some pix to show off. I hope that you can join us this year.
