DJ Craig, Payson, Arizona Member Since July 2014 Artist Statement Hello!
My wife and I reside in the mountains of north-central Arizona, where the air is pure, the people are friendly and the scenery is spectacular.
We are blessed to reside within short walking distance of a nine-acre lake, where many species of birds either call their home or stop and visit twice-annually on their way to either warmer or cooler grounds.
Bird photography has been my passion for the past decade. What a thrill it is to be able to capture an American bald eagle swoop and pluck a rainbow trout from the water or a great blue heron plunge its razor sharp beak through the water to impale an unsuspecting sunfish. And, what a joy it is, too, to be able to photograph the beauty that lies within our national forests.
