About Me

My photo
Forest, Virginia, United States
A long time ago, my sophomore English teacher, Father William Campbell, saw something in my writing and predicted that I would someday become a newspaper columnist. He suggested the perfect title for my column--"Leaves of the Palm." Now that I have a little extra time on my hands I've decided to put Father Campbell's prediction to the test. I'm going to start using this blog site not just to reprint opinion pieces I've published elsewhere but to try to get more of my ideas and opinions out there. Feedback is welcome. To find out more about me, please check out my Web site: www.EdwardFPalm.com (Click on any of the photos below for an enlarged view.)

The Seabeck Eagles--Again

I rather like this one, which I got just today.  --EFP

The Seabeck Eagles Revisited

The first two here are juveniles--less than two years old.
I took the last one, below, with a 650-1300-mm zoom lens at 1300-mm--the equivalent of a 1950-mm lens on my Nikon D200.

A Good Night at Safeco Field

I had a good night Saturday at Safeco Field--if I say so myself.  I found that I thoroughly enjoy photographing baseball.  I plan to go back soon.  Except for the establishing shot, I used my Nikon D2H with my 70-300 Nikon VR zoom.  I used an 8mm lens for wide-angle establishing shot of the field.  Click on each photo for a better view.   --EFP

Newborn Fawn

This little fellow appears to be less than an hour old.  We came across him today, 20 June 2010, at the Olympic Game Farm in Sequim, Washington.  --EFP

The Seabeck Eagles Revisited

The light today was finally halfway decent, allowing me to get some good shots. Click on each photo for a better view.  --EFP

A Bird of a Different Feather

A bird of a different feather showed up today at our feeder--in broad daylight, no less!  --EP

Sunset Over the Olympics

Last Saturday, we had the sort of sunset we don't often get here in western Washington.  I took these coming back to Bremerton from Seattle on the ferry.  --EFP
