Thanks, Paul, for leaving such a nice comment on my Chickadee photo. I, too, love to be outside as much as possible--with camera in hand, of course--and my challenge is to do it while living in a city without a car!

I really enjoyed your portfolio--there's really nice work here. Take care and keep in touch.

Cenk M. Yetis , May 26, 2009; 07:44 P.M.

beautiful collection

beautiful collection of photos taken in nature. single photos section (old barns, shoes..) is also a good idea that can be improved. but i guess trying to capture beauties of the world instead of old stuff is much more intriguing as you reflect to us by your nice photos..:)

Hi Paul, Thanks for you kind comments on my deer photo and portfolio. I also enjoyed your portfolio. I feel we have a similar style and I see myself going for similar shots.

deb cloud , July 22, 2009; 10:11 A.M.


You have such an amazing collection of images. I love how you have folders for each of the seasons. Here in the Houston area, we rarely see dramatic changes in our seasons so it was a pleasure to journey through your images.

Thanks for your wonderful and encouraging comment on my image "Bright Bug On Yellow Flowers..."


L.J. Leonard , August 04, 2009; 10:59 A.M.

nice stuff

your deer and pelican shots look like they were taken in my proverbial back yard. nice captures!

Denise L , August 11, 2009; 10:47 A.M.


Hi Paul,thanks for your nice comment. It was a pleasure to look through your site. I love the clarity and composition of your images. I like how they're grouped by season. Nova Scotia also has four distinct seasons, each with it's own special beauty. Your flower shots are beautiful, I think we share a similar flower " vision ". Cheers. Denise

Mauro Carli , August 12, 2009; 02:15 P.M.

Very interesting portfolio! I share your passion for outdoor photography, and for trying to get to places "off the beaten track", in search of photographic hidden treasures. I like your style a lot and the scenes you choose to capture. Regards!

Roman ''Terrise" Golubenko , August 12, 2009; 07:32 P.M.

Wonderful portfolio. You have a great eye for composition and it shows in your photos. Keep up the good work!


Travis Novitsky , August 21, 2009; 05:15 P.M.

Nice images

Hi Paul,

Thanks for signing my guestbook again. I always appreciate your comments. You have a nice selection of images here, your macro work is especially nice. I don't have very many good macro shots, so I always notice when someone has a nice collection of them. To answer your question about viewing the tree, there is a viewing platform that you can go to on your own that gives you a somewhat distant view of the tree, but doesn't allow to go right down to the base of the tree. If you'd like to go right up to it and shoot sometime, try to let me know a week or two ahead of time of when you might be here and I'll see if I can work it into my schedule. For any future correspondence, please send an email. My email address is on the purchase page of my website. Keep on shooting!



Varun Vaidya , October 26, 2009; 12:43 P.M.

What a great portfolio Paul!!

Christopher Harris , December 09, 2009; 12:01 P.M.


Well, I have just concluded my nearly hour's worth of leisurely touring your collection of photographs. You have some real talent, a good eye, and clearly know what you are doing with your equipment. I particularly like your landscape and flower images. Keep pursuing those 'intimate landscapes' too, you have a knack for finding and photographing them. Keep on doing what you are doing, it is working very well! I have marked you as "Interesting," and I look forward to following your photography and future postings. Cheers! Chris

Hello Paul, What a thrill to find your photos. My daughter has a summer home near Longville and while visiting her I have tried so many times to photograph loons. First I didn't have the right equipment and secondly they kept diving. Your shots are incredible. Can't wait to send her your p.n address. Beautiful work. Take care, Deanna

Gail O'Keefe , April 27, 2010; 09:42 P.M.
