Black and White Images

March’s images – a great opportunity for black & white

March's images - a great opportunity for black & white

Yes, I just love black and white.  I started in photography with Kodak black and white 120 film in my Father’s box Brownie camera at the age of 10.  More recently I enjoyed using the same film type in my Hasselblad cameras, now using my Nikons and the digital darkroom I still love the results!

January was time to work on some Warbirds

January was time to work on some Warbirds

I know that I blogged too little last year.  With our adventure to Alaska and then through the Yokon, Northwest Territory, British Columbia and Alberta back South there really were too few bad weather days (yes a strange sort of complaint) in order to process images, update photography websites and blog! I also struggled with […]


Kenai Fjords National Park – what a dream

Kenai Fjords National Park - what a dream

We took the Wildlife  excursion with Kenai Fjords Tours from Seward.  it was 8.5 hours of pure delight.  Captain Mark Lundstrom did an excellent job of getting us to the locations and providing insight on the birds, marine mammals, glaciation and volcanic activity.  We had the good fortune to meet Mark when we went to the […]

Inside The Hospital at Alcatraz

Inside The Hospital at Alcatraz

OK, it is difficult with two blogs running to decide which should be used to post a given blog.  Most of my posts on the www.fulltimervingwithhtekings.com are about places I have visited with my Nikons – so they qualify for both blogs. Here is a link to the blog I recently posted on the RVing […]


Both Avro Lancasters Flying Together

Both Avro Lancasters Flying Together

I recently received and watched the BluRay “Reunion of Giants”.  It is an incredible feature of a truly unique event.  It is the story of how the Avro Lancaster Mk. X owned and operated by the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum (CWHM) was readied and flew to England in order to fly in formation with the only […]

Visiting with the Ancients - a recent blog from our "fulltimervingwiththekings.com"

Since I was first introduced to the Ancient Pueblo Ruins on my very first photography workshop with John Sexton, locating and photographing them has been one of my passions. We were lucky enough to visit several sites last year as we crossed the Colorado Plateau. Visiting With The Ancients


A Sample of Recent Adventures in South Dakota.

A Sample of Recent Adventures in South Dakota.

As we approached the Thor Diesel Owners Club Rally I managed to carve out a day and a half to work on some images.  Something I haven’t managed to do since the end of May – which is REALLY bad.  But essential timing as I head to Anchorage tomorrow morning for a Moose & Northern […]


Drama in the Skies

Drama in the Skies

In landscape photography nine times out of ten the skies really make the image.  That is why most photographers hate bald skies (cloudless) because they are a boring sheet of blue.  Recently when i was in Monument Valley, I would not shoot any landscapes because it was yet another day of bald sky and I […]


Anchor Points

Anchor Points

All good images have their anchor points which give you the context for the whole image.  However, I am at the TICO Warbird Airshow, the air show flying hasn’t started yet, but there is a magnificent Florida Sky!  I call them Florida skies because I have only seen them in Florida, there appears to be […]


From Venice Fishing Pier

From Venice Fishing Pier

It was good to be back on the Fishing Pier at Venice, Florida.  It just typifies the Sea Shore here.  Very busy with lots of people fishing, many youngsters – girls as well as boys, but all age groups.  I wonder how many took their supper home? I was waiting for the buzzer in my […]


JUST LOVE THOSE STORMY SKIES

Black and White images are my absolute passion.  Whenever I am out shooting I am always asking myself “is this a black ad white image?”.  Of course in the (not so long ago for me) old days it was easy, thanks to Kodak’s TMAX 100.  So when I encounter really stormy looking skies the answer […]


I just LOVE photographing Silver Birds

Often, as a child, airplanes were referred to as the “big silver bird”.  This description was aimed at civilian commercial airliners rather than military ‘planes (the military always applied camouflage schemes to make their aircraft less visible to the enemy). However, recently, with the restoration of old warbirds (such as the P-51 Mustang, B17 Flying […]


Arctic Camouflage is Great

The Black Diamond Jet Team are a rare commodity in our skies inasmuch as they are civilian owned. During the 2012 season they are fully sponsored by United Bank Card, Inc.  Thank you United Bank Card, Inc. The Arctic Camouflage is a very bright scheme albeit in black, white and grey, but to me as […]

T-6 Texan Air 2 Air added to www.warplaneimages.com

This beautiful aircraft in polished metal finish just cries out to me BLACK & WHITE !  So here is the first crop (pun intended, although I don’t crop!) of the images for the T-6 Texan trainer. (Taken on an Air2Air workshop with Moose Peterson). Hope you enjoy!      


Monument Valley, where I feel the “Spirit of the Land”

I love to visit Monument Valley.  Maybe it is the stillness and tranquility, or the spirits of Navajo souls, or the unspoilt natural form of the landscape, or the shape and characters of the Monuments themselves, or the Mesas – but here I feel at one with the landscape. I feel alive. I fell the […]
