Burrowing Owls

I have been cleaning out many of my Youtube videos and ran across this video my wife and I did several years back. We began our search early in the season in hopes of finding a mating pair of Burrowing Owls and what we inevitably experienced was nothing short of awesome.

I was around the age of ten when I first held a camera up to my eye and snapped that first picture and as you would expect I was instantly hooked. Of coarse back then it was film, mostly Black & White. Those were the days…really! Those were the days when you could point your camera at anything that flew, walked on two or four legs or was a zillion stories tall without worry of getting the boot or being arrested.

Perfect Photo Suite 7.5

Today June 3, 2013, onOne Software released Perfect Photo Suite 7.5.  The install, as I have learned to expect,  was flawless, taking only minutes to install.  The update refreshed the plugins for Photoshop, Lightroom and Aperture without a hitch.  As soon as I loaded my image into the standalone application I immediately noticed an increase in performance with 7.5.  I didn’t need a stopwatch to realize the increased speed as I clicked on each effect in the Layers module and watched as my image snapped to my latest selection.  As I...
