It doesn’t matter how many times one gets published it’s always a little bit of a rush. I was fortunate to have a photo of mine used for the cover of Crystal Coast Outdoors for the July issue. If that wasn’t enough of a thrill I also have two articles and photos inside! The first article, “Rachel Carson Estuarine Reseve; A Hidden Jewel on the Crystal Coast,” provides an introductory look at the reserve and the wildlife living there. The second article, “Geariing up for Photography fomr a Kayak,” is a reprint of my article that appeared in the Carolinas Nature Photography Associations publicatin, Camera in the Wild. If you’ve ever considered using a kayak for wildlife photography this article will help you make the correct gear choices for that endeavor. If you’re visiting the Crystal Coast during the month of July be sure to pick-up a copy.
