Best of 2005

We were able to do a fair amount of traveling in 2005, including our longest and furtherst trip to date, to New Zealand. This was a spectacular 3 weeks, and while this sounds like a long time, it wasn't long enough to even adequately cover the South Island of New Zealand! There was an abundance of birds, seals, whales, incredible landscapes, etc. which made for virtually unlimited photo opportunities. And later in the year, I had the great privilege of leading 7 other photographers, in addition to my wife, on a return trip to Costa Rica, one of my favorite destinations. We spent a week and a half traveling from the Carribean to the Pacific coast, with several stops inbetween. The diversity and abundance of life in this little country never ceases to amaze me. Inbetween these two major trips, we did some traveling in the U.S. - to the Horicon Marsh State Wildlife Area in Wisconsin, and the other hitting several locations in the northeast (Chincoteague, VA, Cape May, NJ, and Bombay Hook, DE).

I have included 24 of my favorite images from the year in this collection, and I hope you enjoy them.You can view the rest of the photos on my site from this year by clicking here, and scrolling down through the links to the various Galleries.
