It's getting to be that time of the year when the light gets great.  That's a good thing for photographers who live and die by the Magic Hour.  Yesterday at the Laguna de Santa Rosa, Bud Pozzini of the Double Tree Ranch and Saddle Shop was giving lessons to calf ropers on [...]

Fourth of July.  Not a creature was stirring.  Well except the fish jumping and he bullfrogs croaking.  And an owl.  I saw an owl.  Other than, yep, just another quiet night at the Laguna de Santa Rosa. A moonlit night at the Laguna de Santa Rosa, Friday July 4, 2014. (Kent [...]

Got Laguna?  Why yes, right here.  Flippancy aside, you are correct  to assume that I've not trained my camera on the Laguna de Santa Rosa for awhile.  That doesn't mean I haven't thought about it.

A march through the Laguna de Santa Rosa Thursday yielded a ton of bird sightings.  Im not sure what kind of bird it is, there are so many species at the Laguna, but the bird below seemed to be giddy, having snatched a dragonfly in mid air.  The bird kept [...]

Yes, I'm still around and have been out to the Laguna de Santa Rosa.  However, the pictures just haven't seemed worthy to put them here.  When I undertook the project, I thought it would be pretty easy.  I guess I lost that game show. For whatever it's worth, here you [...]

At certain times of the year, the landscape can change and resemble a different part of the country.  Yesterday at the Laguna de Santa Rosa, towering thunderstorms made it seem a little like New Mexico.  Originally photographed in color, I converted the frame over to black and white. Juan [...]

LagunaPic Late March 2014

Difficult to get to the Laguna de Santa Rosa on a timely basis, even though it's only a few miles to any location along it's marshy banks. However, I have made a point to get out there at least a few times as the latest in a series of spring [...]
