Photography by Doug Couvillion: Two Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles resting on a black sand beach

Despite the rough surf and rocks of Panalu’u Bay, Hawaii the beach is frequented by Green Sea Turtles.  These two were taking a well deserved rest on the black sand after braving the conditions to make it to the beach.

This killdeer was patrolling the shoreline of Lake Yellowstone, spending most of its time on the semi-submerged rocks just beyond the shore.

Sanderling Display

Up and on the beach early one morning in late August I watched these two sanderlings interacting.  It wasn’t clear whether this was some type of courtship display or a standoff over which bird had domain over the beach.

Landing Zone

Animal tracks always catch my attention but they aren’t always very photogenic.  These bird prints were on a beach along the James River.  It would be impossible to identify the type of bird that left them but the deeper, wider prints in the foreground indicate the bird landed here and then hopped along the beach before taking flight.  The early morning sun provided enough shade within the prints to make them stand out in the photo.


Washed Up Buoy

The color, texture and quality of light drew me in to get photos of this buoy, washed up among dried reeds.


Autumn Morning Fog on the James

photograph of the James River in early morning fogThis photo was taken about 30 minutes after sunrise on an early December day.  Our neighborhood was shrouded in fog and I hoped to capture it hanging over the river.  Normally fog clings heavily to the river but this day was different. I was a little disappointed but enjoyed this view from one of Richmond’s many bridges over the James River.
