"Jump"


On a boating trip around Sanibel Island a few years ago, I was lucky to see several pods of bottlenose dolphins jumping in the wake of our craft. A sunny blue sky as well as aquamarine water added to the joy and beauty of the day’s outing.

 "Wait for Me"


Alaska is a spectacular place for wildlife photographers. Last June I took a small boat out of Homer Spit with several other photographers and was very impressed with what we were able to see in just a few hours. At one point we saw a small flock of Harlequin Ducks on a rocky outcrop. The males have very complex color patterns and there were several in the flock. Just as we approached they decided to fly. Each duck skittered across the water followed by the next duck. The final one fell behind and I got the shot.

Sue moved to Southwest Florida after a career in library management in Denver, Colorado. She discovered a love of photography after moving here.  Since Sue has always enjoyed being out in nature and revels in travel, photography seems the perfect partner for her other loves. Sue focuses on wildlife and travel photography as well as a recent interest in street photography. She has also begun dabbling in creative photography as well.

Sue has won awards from multiple camera clubs including DPI-SIG, Fort Myers Camera Club, Lakewood Ranch Camera Club, and Photographic Society of America. She has also won awards from Calusa Blueway Paddling Festival and National Wildlife Magazine, which has also included one of her photos in their blog. Her photographs have appeared in seven nature calendars.
