The non-Shorebirds that go to Churchill

My previous blog was about the shorebirds in their gorgeous breeding plumage that make their way to Churchill, Manitoba.  But there are plenty of other types of birds and species that travel all the way to Churchill in order to breed. Many of these birds also “dress up” in order to attract a mate!  Here […]

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 […]


Witnessing a Natural Phenomenon

Witnessing a Natural Phenomenon

As the blog from our full-time RVing in North Americas says – serendipity strikes again.  We visited Haines in Alaska for images of Bald Eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) but instead discovered all three species of Scoters (Surf Scoter, Black Scoter and White-winged Scoter) in this feeding frenzy. Oh how I love wildlife photography! Mother Nature is […]

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 […]

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 […]


A Rare Experience in Custer State Park

A Rare Experience in Custer State Park

We were visiting The Black Hills of South Dakota and fell in love with the scenery and especially the Wildlife Loop.  We also really liked Custer, the town and could envisage settling there eventually (as long as the Winters are not too L o n g ). While in the area we had enjoyed seeing […]


Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias) dines on Frogs Legs

We are at the Dealership for “Tigger”, our 40′ diesel pusher motor home and one of the managers tells me that they had just finished clearing the pond and there is a couple of “nice ducks” on the water.  So I head round there with my gear, but they are a pair of standard Mallards.  However […]
