As a nature photographer Iâ€™ve always wanted to photograph the forces of nature that surrounds our daily lives. Although destructive and very much life threatening, I have always wanted to photograph a tornado. Some images I have seen are quite scary, yet beautiful at the same time. My ideal image would be a giant funnel cloud in an open and unpopulated farm area in the Midwest. I might not ever get to witness such a sight, but if I ever do, I want it to be without any damage or loss of lives, especially mine! My other quest is to photograph an active volcano, but from a very safe distance.
BRADFORD â€“ The Pennsylvania All-Stars dug themselves a big hole on Saturday night when they allowed the New York All-Stars to jump out to an early 16-0 lead in the Don Raabe Big 30 Classic at Bradfordâ€™s Parkway Field.
The game was postponed with less than five minutes to play in the first quarter when game officials spotted lightning. After waiting for nearly two hours in the hopes of continuing play, the Big 30 Committee decided to resume the game Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m. The Pa. squad came back and made a game of it, but still ended up on the short end of the score, 37-24.
In Part I of this story I was about to enter a different world, the world of the professional bird watcher. I had driven to an area near Lake Erie in northwestern Ohio, where the spring bird migration is at its best. This small area is called Magee Marsh, a swampy tract of land overlooking the shores of the lake, where migrating songbirds stop to rest and feed before venturing on the long flight across the lake and into Canada. The amazing event that happens every year at this swamp is the fact that most of these migrants are warblers.
