Ooh. Fall color time. I recently made a quick trip to the Mt. Baker area here in Washington State. Red Huckleberry leaves, orange Mountain Ash, yellow willows. Wow.

Next week I'll be in Vermont leading a workshop with David Middleton. Last year it rained. And rained. And then rained some more. The one time it didn't rain we managed to get some decent shots. It was so nice at the time that David opened his sunroof. Then it rained some more. Just a minor detail, which I discovered as I sat in the rainsoaked passenger seat. Hopefully the weather will be better this year.

Notes from the Field
Want a good laugh and a thought provoking read? Who doesn’t! My friend David Middleton has revamped his website (actually, someone else did it, David’s not that technically savvy) and some of his “Notes From the Field” essays are posted there. You may have read them elsewhere before, but they’re always worth revisiting. If you’ve never read any of them, then do yourself a favor and click on over.
Winter wildlife
Last I heard from Jay at Triple “D”, one spot has opened up for the Jan. 19-22 Winter Special workshop that I’m leading. If you were thinking of expanding your portfolio with winter wildlife shots, this could be your chance. Give Triple “D” a call at 406-755-9653
Imagenomic Noiseware Plug-in
At a recent workshop, one of the participants gave us a demo of a great noise reduction plug-in he’s been using. Imagenomic Noiseware is easy to use, wipes out noise, and does a very good job of preserving detail. Images shot at ISO 1600, normally full of noise, looked amazing after running the plug-in. I was so impressed that I downloaded and bought the Professional Plug-in version.

Head on over to the Imagenomic site for more information. And thanks to Bruce Clifton of Northwest Pixel Printers for demonstrating this great utility.

Red Rock Wildlife
This April 15-17, Don Mammoser and I will be leading a wildlife photography workshop at one of the Triple “D” Utah Special sessions. Cougar, wolves, and bear in red rock, what could be better? There will also be an opportunity to photograph raptors on the18th at an additional cost. This workshop will be based out of Hurricane, UT. We haven’t set a price yet but should have that information posted by the end of this week.
Happy Birthday to Bailey
Yes, our little dog Bailey turned 1 year old on Sept. 15th. I feel bad about it though. Both my wife and I were out of town and Bailey had to spend the momentous occasion with my dad. Good thing she's a dog and doesn't really care.

That's all for now. Have a great October
