"Heaven Born"

Earlier this year my wife and I took a trip to Wyoming to a place near the Salt River where I knew Trumpeter swans liked to congregate.

We stopped on our way to the motel, but the sun was high and the light was bad, it looked promising so the next morning we got up early and headed out, we arrived before the sun was up, and that gave me time to get set up, and ready, then the waiting, there were swans already there on the water, but I wanted swans in flight, after a while I thought they weren't going to show up, then way off in the distance you could hear the distinctive call of the Trumpeter, then one came in, then another, but all singles, after a wile there were more and more swans on the water, all of a sudden they all started calling, thundering loud, then off again in the distance you could hear trumpeting, and here came this pair flying around above me, they were being called in by the swans that were on the water, once they landed they did a little "triumph ceremony&…

Welcome to my blog!

Since this is my first post on this blog I guess I should introduce myself.
My name is Terry "T. L." Mair, I was born in a small rural community in Utah named Heber City, when I was 5 my family moved to the small farming community of Midway, Utah, just three miles from Heber. I have lived in Midway ever since.
I learned to hunt and fish here in this little valley, and that introduced me to wildlife, and the beauty of the natural world.
In 1985 I started a portrait/wedding photography business, but am slowly moving into photographing the beauty around me.
My web site where I display and sell my images is: if you have a chance take a look.
I am planning on posting images from my photographic travels and telling a little about each of them.
Thank you for your time.
