Happy Thanksgiving!

It's easy, especially in our society today I think, to dwell on the problems we have, the things that aren't perfect, and everything that's going wrong. Sometimes it's easy to forget just how lucky we are. I try to remind myself often not to take things for granted, especially when I wake up in the morning and can say "I live on San Juan Island!" It's a special thing to be able to live in such a beautiful place.

I like to take a little time every Thanksgiving to remember a few of the long list of things I have to be thankful for: I live in a place where wild killer whales make their home, I get to spend time photographing wildlife on almost a daily basis, I have some very special family and friends that support me in all the crazy things I do, Barack Obama is our President Elect!.....I hope you do the same.

Happy Thanksgiving!
