Well my friends and fellow WATERKEEPERS, I have finally finished the photos from the conference and have posted slideshows and links to them all.
Below is the last and wildest night and day of all. It was an honor and a privilege to shoot this group of the worlds finest.
If you have photos you would like posted to this blog, send them to me in what ever format you have them and I will post to a page with your name and logo if you will send them along. Be sure to include photo credits and home program name.
I will be producing a video with comments to our absent Gulf Keepers and the conference in general. If you have video clips you want in there, send them along
If you have lat. long. of your location, send that along and I will create a Google map of photographers.
I love you guys and want you all to know what an inspiration you all are to me. I came home ready to get back in the saddle kick some more butt! It was the first trip I have ever taken where I photographed both sunset on the Pacific...
from a plane on the same journey.
(5 hours in Mexico City sleeping on the floor)
When the stewardess woke me to fasten my seat belt, I looked out the window and was over my home on Hurricane Creek. Descending to land, I could follow it to the Black Warrior River, which leads to the Gulf of Mexico that I had just flown over, then over our Cahaba RIVERKEEPERS watershed to Birmingham after leaving my international family of WATERKEEPERS in Baja Mexico. I knew then what a blessing it is to be a part of something this huge and yet have the smallest watershed in the family of WKA. Rick Dove once said that Hurricane Creek is a little creek that roars! You guys and gals give that roar volume!
