Sonoma in Springtime Photo by Nat Coalson

Spring is in the Air!

For me and many other nature photographers, the end of winter marks the start of a new season of outdoor photography. During the winter I've been hard at work on a number of large projects (which means I've spent far too much time sitting at the computer) ... including writing a new book and processing photos from the past year. I'm now making plans for several exciting photo excursions over the coming months, and I also have many classes, workshops and speaking engagements scheduled this year.

This newsletter is my first for 2011. This year I'll be sending quartely newsletters plus occasional special announcements. If you have suggestions for topics want to hear about, please feel free to contact me.

About the header: I made this photo on a gorgeous spring day among the vineyards in Sonoma, California. The yellow mustard is planted as "cover crop" for the vineyards, which helps replenish nitrogen and essential nutrients in the soil while the grape vines are dormant. This photo is a good example of strong color contrast, where complimentary colors create distinct divisions within the frame.

New Web Site

I'm pleased to announce the launch of my new Web site at The new site features lots of new images, easy online print ordering, up-to-date workshop listings and much more. I welcome your visit to the new site and look forward to hearing your comments and suggestions.
