This is my first time seeing and capturing two Red-Shouldered Hawks together like this.


This male and female pair were perched up high on the far bank of the Rappahannock river at the fall line in Fredericksburg, Va.


It was a real treat to be able to see, photograph and share this special moment.

On a slow quiet late autumn afternoon, I was driving through the National Battlefield Park for Fredericksburg and by chance came upon this stark but beautifully still scene. The light was just right and the leading lines naturally took me to where I needed to be.

On this particular morning I was out very early walking the streets of downtown historic Fredericksburg, Va. looking for photo opportunities. I turned a corner and was thrilled to see the dawn colors coming together behind a portion of the skyline.

One of my favorite moments in 2023 was on Monday, October 30th at 6:30am.


The conditions were perfect for one of the challenges I enjoy the most right now as a photographer, which is trying to capture those unique landscape moments on historically important ground.


On this particular morning I was on the Spotsylvania Battlefield looking over a portion of the Bloody Angle, where some of fiercest fighting of the Civil War took place in May of 1864.


The fog that morning was some the heaviest I have ever seen out there and I was the only one on the field.


It was awesome.
