Snowy Owl at the Heath by froggynaan
Snowy Owl at the Heath
A full grown snowy owl taking off after we got too close. This was on a walk at the Saco Heath Preserve, Saco, ME. I only had my 35mm lens on so I made the best of it.  The amazing thing about these birds is that they fly silently yet they are so big.  Also, I'm not sure about their range, but I feel like southern Maine is a bit far south to see a snowy owl.  Is it?

Walking the Planks at the Heath
Early morning walk at the Saco Heath Preserve in Saco, ME. The area used to be used as a peat moss bog and is now a wildlife refuge. We saw a snowy owl there that day. Picture soon to come.

I'm Dan. I like to take photos of living things.
Why photograph people? I can't imagine anything more interesting than pictures of people. I think the emotional impact of images of people, especially their faces, is unparalleled by any other subject.  I am awed by some of the portraits here on DA.  Here are some of the works that I'm currently enamored with:

november ~ by justivmicaela by ruben301magnus by ruben301
indian face11 by emiliiiisweet dreams by emiliiiiAlyx by EmilySoto

I want these type of people to get more recognition. When I search portraits here in DA, i get 80% of what I would call porn. I don't mind porn. But I wish there were an easier way to separate porn from powerful emotional portraits.
