Autumn Backyard Nature in New Jersey.

Colorful Clouds at Dawn. Composite of seven, ten, and eighteen images taken with a Leica SL2-s camera and 16-35 mm lens. Images were processed with Capture One Pro 22, including the panorama stitching. This is a new feature in the just released update to Capture One Pro. Previously, I would have stitched the images with AutoPano Giga (a program no longer supported) or PTGui.

Backyard Dawn Panorama. Individual images in the slideshow are best viewed in my PhotoShelter Gallery.

Birds of the day viewed at the birdfeeder and in the backyard: Mourning Dove, Tufted Titmouse, House Finch, Dark-eyed Junco. Not as many birds as yesterday visiting the patio and birdfeeder.

I am a scientist by training (Eckerd College, BSc; Caltech, Ph.D.). I worked for 27 years as a Chemist in the Pharmaceutical Industry developing processes to manufacture medicines for human and animal health. I now spend my time as a photographer and world traveler. My interests include the natural world, wildlife, landscapes, sky, and seascapes, travel, and astrophotography. I look for unique ways of viewing the world and presenting my images. I have traveled to over 55 countries in six continents, often on Semester at Sea voyages. While at home in New Jersey, I spend time on home renovation and expansion of a wildflower garden/meadow.
