I find that your images do make me feel the air, hear the sounds, remember the smells. So If thats what you want to do, you are a great success. And needless to say, they are beautiful and surprising. Thanks! A moving journey though your galleries...

Thanks, Buz.
No, our Christmas was spent dealing with the Flu. Both my Wife and I came down with it, with in hours of each other. It' been snowing and as soon as I can get up enough energy I'll have to dig out my truck and clean our driveway. Bills need to be paid and mailed.
Gary20-Dec-2016 20:58
I appreciate your nice comment on my image.
An early Christmas wish to you and your Family, and a healthy New Year....
Gary25-Nov-2016 18:31
Thanks Buz, yes, our Thanksgiving was an enjoyable one...
Gary14-Nov-2016 17:26
Many thanks Buz, these Moose are the first we have spotted in quite some time. The last Moose to inhabit the Valley was poached and left to rot. There has been rash of shooting/poaching incidents this past year and the powers to be believe it is being done by a group of teens, but have yet to get solid evidence on them. According to the local paper any way...

Thanks Buz, I really appreciate your nice comments on my images...
Gary07-Jul-2016 15:51
Thanks, Buz.
I wish I could be at the Park now. I visited the park briefly in 1968 when I was attending a trade school in Denver. The visit was way to short, the rugged beauty of the Park is awe-inspiring.
Gary28-May-2016 17:13
I appreciate your kind comments on my Landscape images. Coming from you who does not take a back seat to anyone when it comes to Landscape images, means a great deal too me....
Have a nice Memorial Day holiday, Buz...
Gary19-May-2016 18:55
Yes it's good to be back. We are both in good health and it' also good too hear from you.
Unfortunately we lost our Son, he fought a long and difficult fight, he is now resting peacefully...

Amazing galleries my friend
Michael Dougherty09-May-2014 01:03
Outstanding work Buz. I am from Arkansas and people tell me your Cades Cove is very similar to our Boxley Valley, a part of the Buffalo National River. Love your work, and love it that you do black and white. Nice moody landscapes. I also love William Blake. I think the essence of what we do reflects the mystery of nature. You capture that.

Ann Pettigrew09-Dec-2013 21:16
I just spent time looking at several of your amazing galleries. You have beautiful work! I noticed that you have the 70-200mm lens which is my favorite lens, however, I am having intermittent issues with it not autofocusing and was wondering if you have run into this problem at all with your 70-200. I have sent it back to Nikon and they cleaned the contacts but could find nothing else wrong with it. Any ideas? Thanks so much. I am amazed that I have not seen your work before today. You are now in my favorites!
fredrcox30-Nov-2013 12:52
Buz, you are certainly The Master photographer, and viewing your images is a great learning experience.
Guest 10-Sep-2013 14:54
Morning Buz,
Yes, the Doe did turn an ordinary image into an exciting image by virtue of her act of fleeing from impending danger, me. Now that brings up another age old drama, Fight or Flight, in her case to protect her fawn. How deep does the Mother's love for her fawn run, or, does her instinct for self preservation supersede her parental duties and flee impending danger? In her case, she fled the scene, and left her fawn on it' own...
Beverly J McFarland 12-Apr-2013 22:20
Hi Buz,
I am looking for some Smoky Mountain photos. I love your Cades Cove Methodist Church, Park Road near Crib Gap and White Oak on a Snowy day. What I am looking for is the same location photographed in all 4 different seasons. Do you have anything like that?
I am anxious to hear from you.
Guest 04-Oct-2012 02:40
Thanks Buz for the nice comments on my "smoky" images...LOL
Yes, it has been one of the worst fire seasons in our area for quite some time. The valley has been filled with smoke all summer. Working out doors has been limited at best. We decided to take some time away from here and visit Yellowstone and adjacent Teton Park. What a laugh the Parks were filled with smoke as well which was too bad, because the colors were very nice...
Greg Gans 16-Jun-2012 15:27
Hi Buzz,
While web searching for photo sites in the Smokies I came upon your site. I often shoot nature photography here in Pennsylvania. It's very clear that you not only love the awesome beauty of creation but also skilled and passionate way of helping us to "see" it. I hope to get there soon and enjoy the beauty you've shown. Blessings, Greg

Hey Buz, Thank you very much for your kind comments & continued support of my work. I really appreciate your views especially from a great photographer as yourself. I have learnt a great deal from you over the years. Thank you.

It's nice to hear from you, hope you are enjoying your trip...
GNP is a beautiful place to visit and get some really nice pictures..

Thank you Buz for the recent visit to my PAD gallery. Really appreciate the kind comments and the vote. Hope you are in the best of health :)
Guest 10-Apr-2008 15:03
Thanks Buz for the nice comments and votes on my two duck images...
This has been a very rich year for ducks at the Refuge, our flight ducks are still arriving and a few new species have dropped in for a feed and rest before moving on...
poetry66628-Mar-2008 09:50
Hey Buz, Thanks for all your continued support of my work. Your recent kind comments & votes etc. Its good to see you back with us & to see more of your amazing captures.
My best,
csmallari12-Mar-2008 23:27
Hi Buz,
Thank you so much for the kind words and the vote - really appreciate it a lot.
Looked over your galleries and it is such a welcome treat to see Nature captured with such passion. We are all truly blessed with this amazing world that we live in. I just wish more people would realize that sometimes the simple things in life can give a person the peace and quiet one needs to rejuvenate from the hectic lives most of us have. You are so lucky to be able to live in a place where nature abounds.
Guest 12-Mar-2008 15:48
Morning Buz,
Thanks for the nice comment on my mallard image and I appreciate your vote..
The marsh area has been a veritable treasure for ducks this spring, now that the flights are beginning to arrive. I wanted to put up a blind but the new manager said no. She has all these new regulations in place and makes it nearly impossible to get any nice close ups of the ducks and animals. She has all these Eastern ideas that just well not work out here, but at least she is trying to improve the Refuge...
Gina B. 07-Mar-2008 19:35
Hey Buz,
I'm still looking at all the images you took though out the years. I can't stop going back and looking. I have saved several of them to my favorites.
Just to know someone like you...who really knows how to take an awesome picture is a huge honor! But, then again just knowing you and Elaine is an honor in itself! I love the fact that almost every image you took has to do with nature. I know I already told you all this, but I wanted you to have it in black and white!
Take care and where ever you go or what ever you do...stay safe!!
Love, Gina
Guest 04-Mar-2008 04:46
Our snipe look a lot like your woodcock, they are probably in the same family...

This is a beautiful gallery Buz, well done
Faye White04-Aug-2007 01:37

When I visit your galleries, I am in awe of your 'seeing'. I wish I had your gift, but as long as you have it and I can come in and look around, that is fine with me! ;)

Hey Buz,thank you for all of your continuing support and encouraged kind words and votes that you have left in my galleries. Your photography is and has been a true inspiration to me.
A Big thank you!
Guest 27-Mar-2007 23:03
I guess I just have to get my lazy butt out of bed earlier and get up to the park before you take all the best images. Woops! Too late. You've done that already! Outstanding as always.

I want to know how you get all the good wildlife shots. I never see wolves much less photograph them. I must be going to the wrong part of the park.
Keep it up.
Guest 08-Mar-2007 07:44
I admit you got talent. Now I'm jealous.

Buz - thanks so much for taking the time to visit my gallerys and leaving comments. I appreciate it. I liver in the Finger Lakes region of New York State and wish I could get to SMNP more often but love our region of the country as well. Anyway take care and continue to produce these wonderful images! Marty
Martin Wenzel01-Dec-2006 13:06
Buz - My wife and I spent a week in the Park in September and fell in love with the area. Unfortuneately the weather wasn't great. I can't wait to come back to the Cove and other areas! Your photographs are wonderful! Take care!
Guest 23-Nov-2006 01:57
You have got to get a job. Obviously you have too much time on your hands because the quality of your work continues to improve. Thanks for the great images of our Smoky Mts.

Guest 29-Sep-2006 22:35
Hi Buz, Thank you for your nice comments. i enjoy looking for your photos they are so enjoyable. In 1994 Ferndale was brought back to life. The city had become an undesirable place to live. several investors went in and revitalized the area.
Bill Gallagher10-Aug-2006 22:55
Buz, After a week and some change I finally completed my tour of your gallery. I am very impressed. If I haven't said it previously I'll say it now. One of the best I've seen on PBsae. Spent a few days in the Smokeys years ago and you have captured it well. Thanks for sharing.

Guest 08-May-2006 12:47
Thanks Buz for your nice comment on my scenic...
Yes, this area abounds with the history of Lewis and Clark, but the towm, my home town, Stevensville, is known as the first town in Montana, and the St Mary's mission was established here in the early 1800's. The Bitterroot Valley was used by the many Indian tribes for travel and hunting....
Guest 03-May-2006 12:30
Hi Buz - I really enjoyed your Smoky Mountain Gallery. I also saw Beverly's as well - great work - I was there the same week.

Guest 03-Apr-2006 13:39
Morning Buz, On my way home from visiting my Son this past weekend, I like to take this back road, I spotted a flock of turkies and just happened to get some images of the Toms strutting their stuff. I like your image very much with the way the light in shinning on them. It was an overcast day so there was very little light on the Toms I took. I've always enjoyed watching them court the Hens.
My Son is feeling the affects of his new treatments and is very tired and sick to his stomac. The doctors are not holding out much hope, they said that when Jake first reported his illness, two years ago, the cansor was all ready at stage four and beginning to to spread to his organs. I'm a fighter Buz, I always have been, it is really tough to see that my Son has given up. I had a long talk with him and all I managed to do was get him mad at me.
Guest 29-Mar-2006 00:30
Thanks Buz for all your nice comments, I was really shocked when I first spotted this camel and his two buddies. I never heard of them being in Montana. I knew that in the lake 1800's they had imported them into the Soutwest...
Arno Meintjes Wildlife15-Mar-2006 11:26
I have put a small gallery together about life in and around the Kruger National Park.
I hope this will give you an idea where we are off to every now and then.
You are welcome to visit it here :
Marco Valk11-Mar-2006 11:24
Buz, thank you for your comment on my "buzzard" pic. Your comment made me wonder so I did some homework. The common buzzard or eurasian buzzard (buzzard for short) is spread across Europe and Northern Asia. I will add a link of a dutch birding site with some pictures of buzzards on it. You can copy and paste this link on to your browser

Best regards

Arno Meintjes Wildlife06-Mar-2006 14:21
Buz. Thanks for the visit. In this case no permanent damage but in 2000 we had millions of Rands damage. This spesific bridge was washed away and rebuild as well as 2 or 3 camps + damage to a lot of permanent structures. Bungalows etc were washed away. Stoves, beds, tents etc. coming down the river. This was more a flood from rain higher up and this was just the shortest route for the water to the sea at mozambique.
These images was taken on the Friday and by Sunday morning the bridge was reopened.

Guest 31-Jan-2006 21:54
Thanks for your comment on the Fort Niagara gallery. I went there monday morning at 10:00 and stayed until noon and had the entire place to myself. The only other people there were the 2 ladies working in the ticket booth and store. It was nice not to have to shoot around people. It is only 11 miles from my house and Don Nieman had asked me to help his friend get a site on pbase started for the Fort.You can see the treatment they are giving it here : Have a great day.
Michel CORBOZ30-Jan-2006 11:37

Living in North Florida, it's a nice "need a break" trip to your area. I did it a lot as a child and have started that "tradition" with my own family.
Your galleries have captured a beautiful part of our country. We love going up there.

Your galleries are amazing! I love the Smokies and you have a special way depicting them. No one can capture their total beauty on film(or should I say pixels) but you come very close. I'll be back to your galleries often. Thanks for the comments on my images too. Im not a pro like you but I'm working on it.
Jock Shaw 04-Oct-2005 12:41
Man but your pics really are nice. I just point and shoot. Dont think about composition and suchlike. But your pictures are really worth sharing with the world, because they have that bit extra about them. Something special. I sit here in flat Holland in Europe wishing I could visit the smoky mountains one day.
I would like to see some pictures of musicians p[laying if ever you have time to take them. Meanwhile I have your page bookmarked and will keep an eye on it.
Chris Spracklen03-Oct-2005 20:48

Hi Buz, thanks for your comments on my pictures. I sure wish I could tell you what kind of flower that was. Best I can tell you is it is a wildflower. I've tried to identify it but have not had any luck so far. It is rather unusual, isn't it? I have been enjoying your pictures for quite some time now. Wonderful work!
Guest 27-Jul-2005 01:49
Hi Buz. First of all apology for my very late reply. And thank you very much for visiting my still life gallery. I have to say I am actually experimenting with technique at the moment and may not have the answer you are looking for. However, painting with light give the image more depth and tends to capture the shadow in greater detail. While prolonged exposure may not actually produce similar result. In fact, I did improvised on the technique, kinda of a hit and miss. But with practice would hopefully master the skill a bit more. Thank you so much for your comments and vote.
Kim 10-Jul-2005 16:27
It's a special kind of person that can take another of a million creek photos and turn it into something that captures you. Your photography is true art, and showcases all of the little things that so many people miss because they're too absorbed in the world as a whole. Thank you for sharing these with us :)
