Howard, your photos are so inspiring. I am at Owls Head, ME with John Bisignano, my father's old friend and co-artist. Hope we can all get together soon.

Nicely done, sir! Your work shows a great deal of attention to nature and accuarate detail, but ultimately it is just freakin' beautiful.

I recently purchased the Lynx photo and I am truly enthralled with it. I saw the Lynx at the NH Audubon and I knew I had to have it. To me the photo evokes many different emotions and catches the beauty, mystery, and fierceness of the Lynx in one epic shot. Thank you so much for sharing your work.

Also, I just wanted to say thank you so much for being available through email and phone - your communication was great during the purchasing process.
