Hello Bob, I happened to see a photo you did of a Blue Heron taken at Prime Hook in Delaware and was so glad to find someone from my area interested in wildlife and nature photography. I have been looking for some camera clubs and the like for quite awhile but haven't had much luck. I know you're from Maryland but I live in Seaford, Delaware and back in the mid-eighties lived in Prime Hook Beach. In reading some of your articles you mentioned so many locations in Maryland for photography but left out one of my favorites. Perhaps you know of it but...bottom line...I am inviting you on a field trip if you will, on a river trip along the Pocomoke River. The Pocomoke River runs through what I still believe, to be the largest free standing Cypress forest left in the country. I have fished that river for over 30 years (big time Bass Tournament fishermen) and the beauty of this area is amazing. Blue Heron, Bald Eagles, Osprey, Delmarva Fox Squirrel, wild goats, whitetail deer, etc. I launch out of Snow Hill City Park and the Pocomoke has many tributaries that offer complete privacy and wonderful scenic oppurtunities. So, if you are interested in something like this, and don't mind the company of someone who will pick your brains on techniques, lighting, equipment, composition (you get the picture, no pun intended) then I would love to take you on my boat and explore this wonderful river. Also, if you know of any camera clubs in my area I would be greatly appreciative of any information or advice as to possibly starting one. If have a moment, you could check out my humble gallery (also with Betterphoto.com) and let me know what you think. (www.betterphoto.com?rca) Thanks for your time, and if you ever need a partner, apprentice, or just someone to carry your equipment on a shoot, feel free to contact me. Judging from what I saw in your galleries, my own photography would definitely benefit in more ways than I could hope for.Respectfully,Russ
The Pocomoke sounds really interesting!I've been looking for some new places to paddle my kayak around. If you want to hook up one day, I would surely benefit from your knowledge of the flora and fauna of the region.
Have you ever been to Bombay Hook in late summer or autumn? The great egrets and avocets arrive there in huge numbers to feed in the drying pools. It's a good time to get some really great close-ups.
BTW,...I've been somewhat of a fisherman myself for many years (...never cared much for the tournament scene though).My early adulthood was spent chasing bass and trout at local streams, rivers, freshwater lakes and reservoirs. My passion for wildlife photography actually evolved from fishing.
I'm leaving town in a few days to photograph out west (Montana and Idaho), but maybe we can get together and plan something when I get back.
