Conrad Basin, Goat Rocks Wilderness, WA...Rik Littlefield

Submitted by Rik Littlefield... This has got to be my favorite spot of the last couple years. Conrad Basin is in the Goat Rocks Wilderness, in the southern Cascade Mountains of Washington State. (See Google map .) It takes me about 12 hours to get there, 2-1/2 of them by car and the rest by foot. B...

Yellowstone in Winter...Mike Broderick

Submitted by Mike Broderick I've only been there once, for about a week last January, but it was a very special experience. You need honest-to-goodness cold weather gear for the trip, because it is BRUTAL. The temperature was in the teens for most of our trip, and it got up to the twenties at one p...

Bosque del Apache...Mike Broderick

Submitted by Mike Broderick... The microscopists might have got by without hearing about this place, but I'm sure anyone with even a toe dipped into classic nature photography has at least heard of the place, and probably seen more than a few photographs from it. I'm only mildly interested in birds...

Lake Martin, Louisiana...Charles Krebs

Submitted by Charles Krebs... A little hesitant about posting this spot for two reasons... I've only been there once (2005), and this spring (2006) saw many birds arrive but leave early. But it is a wonderful location, it's on my favorites list, and I can't wait to get back again. The bird rookery ...

Zion National Park, Utah...Charles Krebs

Submitted by Charles Krebs... What can you say, it's just a great place! My favorite time is the fall. It's an easy location to "work" as well. It can be as strenuous or easy as you wish. No lack of picture opportunities either way. The town of Springdale makes a good "base" if you are not into cam...

Curtis Creek/Old Fort (B'gosh) North Carolina...Ken Ramos

Submitted by Ken Ramos http://www.photomacrography.net/forum/userpix/2_Curtis_Creek_1_1.jpg Of all the places in Western North Carolina that I could frequent, this has to be one of the most. Probably because it is close to home, about twenty five miles north of my home and just off I-40 East. Exit ...

It's pretty near identical to the way it's been done for years with film SLR's. The camera is moun...
