Having trouble finding your email address, couldn't get it through the flickr site. Drop me a line when you have time. (

great photos in the 2011-03-21 page 4 of 11 of the Jdf player Landon Benson with the ball at his feet firing a rocket in the goal(page 4 of 11)

I'm painting your swan picture. I hope it will look as good as the picture. At least the birds look nice but the reflection of it might look funny. Let's see, thank you for inspiration.
Jennifer Drake 24-Jan-2011 04:20
This past summer my son played on the Portland Timbers u23 team and I believe you took some pictures of the team during one of their games. Would you still have those available? And if so, can I purchase one?

Just came across your work on flickr and it just makes me grin. O.K, occasionally I wince because I have tried to get a shot (like that) and failed but well done, well done. I'm in NW Oregon and I now have to wonder which (if any) seabirds are only found in one of our locales.
Guest 10-Jun-2010 07:48
WOW your work is beautiful.

Gary, I recently sent you an email... not sure if it got through or not, if it did I appologize for duplicating the info here.

I am curious if you ever sell the rights to an image for use of wildlife artists? I am interested in one image.

Thanks Gary - some beautiful work !!

Carol, thanks for the ID confirmation, appreciate it!
carol 17-Nov-2008 21:57
Gary. Yes, your latest Flickr cormorants are Double-breasted cormorants. They are the only cormorants that have that bend in their necks....that little bend dounward part way along, like an adam's apple.
Guest 13-Aug-2008 22:00

Guest 19-Dec-2005 08:07
Hi Gary,
I noticed lens and shutter now carries the sigma 50-500mm, seems to get good reviews, might be worth a look.
Guest 15-Nov-2005 01:59
Hi Gary,
good to see you down at the lagoon again, been awhile for me, i've got a bunch of pics posted at\stusteelhead, i'm sure you'll recognize most of the spots.
woody15-Aug-2005 15:58
Dave...I will look forward to seeing your images...on the run now...sounds like a great trip!
Dave Beedon15-Aug-2005 09:57
I have commented on your images as a guest. Now I have my own account. It contains about 200 images of a road trip from the Seattle area to Moab, Utah. I'm slowly adding more images. Have a look: ----Dave

isobel 13-Feb-2005 06:23
Hi Gary.
We met on the beach at the lagoon about 3 weeks ago. I was telling you about my Eagle shots in courtenay and you said you would like to post one. Well I just got back home so just let me know what to do. love your galleries. Isobel.
Pete & Maggie Groves 31-Jan-2005 02:00
Your bird photos are fantastic, as are the rest of them, but I really like the ones of the birds in flight. Thanks again for the use of your cell phone at the lagoon this afternoon.
Guest 25-Jan-2005 20:38
Hello Woody,

You have some great shots in your galleries. I lived in Victoria for 2 years and it is nice to be able to view your shots of the city, the Island, and all the other stuff. Keep up the good work.
Chris T 03-Jan-2005 18:44
Hi Woody,
Great stuff. I did hear that you took some fabulous group photos at the beach on Boxing Day. Any chance I can view them here sometime?
Elaine F (Terrace) 19-Aug-2004 20:53
Super photos! I didn't stop at the herons in the "birds" pages, but viewed the whole album. I especially like 'line art', the 'natural flower box', and have some favourites among the fog and water scenes. The page is bookmarked now. Thanks!
Jason Hogeweide 19-Jun-2004 21:24
Salut Gary,

Cet est Jason. Je suis au Québec maintenant. J'ai voulu chercher un photo de l'oceane pour ma blonde. You have such a great collection here. Your an excellent photographer and have really captured the many exciting moments of our little island town. I hope you continue with it.

Was just out for a walk on the net and thought I wood
drop by you have been very bussy. It seems that I are
a little slow getting my stuff on my site, we will
work harder as the weather gets COLDER YUK.
Love your stuff LOL Rod
Eric 08-Jul-2002 03:41
Finished your web site system. E-mail me or leave a message on my message board:
Eric 03-Jul-2002 20:56
I have just about completed the system. Send me an email and I can show you it.
Bob Searl, Sr.(b1917-d2017)24-Jun-2002 15:03
Woody, Your images are good, but your contribution to the operation and running of this site is wanting. Are you letting others pay the cost?....Think about it !!!! Slug needs a bit of help.
Eric 15-Jun-2002 02:11
Your pics are great! My grandfather and grandmother enjoy the site and have both added it to their favourites.

I'm working on an idea for your site, the tough part is reproducing the features of pbase that you said you liked at school.

-See ya Tuesday
Carla 19-Mar-2002 21:17
Woody, I have just today been able to view your pictures. Went straight to the moon and sun gallery but continued afterwards to every other gallery. I can hardly express to you what it means to have this area so artfully captured. You have taken photos of scenery that lives in my mind. I love it here and your photos capture the essence of it. You've got my eagles in the snag and my heron in the tree. You've captured the owls I have heard, but never been able to see. The moon & sun over the water and above the city. These are more than pictures, they are memories. Thank you. There is one picture that I have not run across in your galleries. If you drive/walk to the top of Heatherbell or to the Castle when the moon is rising low over the city, the reflection casts upon the waters of both the ocean and the lagoon. I would love to see how you might capture this memory.
woody20-Jan-2002 04:02
thanks for taking the time to view my picts...your going to swell my head with all those positive comments.....glad your enjoying them..... thanks....
Lindy 19-Jan-2002 20:57
Gary, I cannot BELIEVE how beautiful your photography is! Just finished viewing the Flowers gallery and I'm sitting here MARVELing over your talent!

Looking forward to the other 21 galleries . ..I had NO IDEA you were this good! (What's that old caveat about hiding your light under a bushel basket?)

Of course, you KNOW my favorite pic .. .*grin*

Your Lindy
Luvy 17-Nov-2001 13:06
Woody These are great. You have such an eye for compostion. Going to borrow your eyes and try
and paint some of these wonderful images. I have trouble with compostion. Hopefully that will come
with time and a lot of practice, but first I must learn how to paint. *S* Thanks again for sharing these with me.
woody26-Oct-2001 04:44
Glad you have made your decision..any more questions ask away..good luck with your camera...looking forward to seeing some of your photos
Frank Angelo 24-Oct-2001 18:32
Hi Gary

I spoke to you a few weeks ago and you gave me some information on how you are able to get such great results. Well I did it I went out and shelled out the BIG Buck$ for the pro90 is. I hope to be posting soon your action shots are what sold me. I have a son who plays on all kinds of sports and my daughter plays Basketball so I think I can live with the results from the 90 with a good flash for Bball and as for everything else it looks like you have had great luck with the camera with out any special add on stuff. I am in DPreview forums as Frank Angelo so keep an eye out who knows what I will post. I am also looking in to PBASE they seem to have a big following so I may start an album here soon also. I ramble some time.

Thanks for the inspiration
Frank Angelo

Hi Gary, Great pics.Thanks, Gail.
Charlotte 20-May-2001 03:31
I found you in here Gary ! ! ! and I love seeing the world thru the eyes of an artist.
Thank you for showing me this artful site. I love your work, and I love the work of
others I have seen in here. There is so much in this world to see. But there is no way
one could ever see it all. This is the closest one would come to seeing it all. Not only
places, but people, things, thoughts and feelings, nature, ideas, personalities, our world
in it's entirety. Thank you for sharing. I thank all who are in here for sharing.
Joanne Bird 17-May-2001 17:06
Gary I haven't had a change to look at all the picture, but what I have seen is very impressive. Way to go big brother! When ever I need a pick me up I'll have a look.
Love Joanne
