Susan Candelario - Hey Roman, I still smile when I think of that day. We had a blast!!! I love all your images but I luv, luv, luv then one with the heart. Only bad thing is now you made me want to work on a few of my images from that day. LOL Anthony asked when was this… I said remember the day when we were making sounds to keep our timing (you being the choir director) and the bangs on the table from Roman And Nick.? He said oh yeah I remember that quite alright. God I have tears in my eyes from laughing so hard. Betty rocks as well. Can’t wait till the next time.

Betty Wiley - that was such a fun day! Who knew that by bumping the table that we’d get a cool effect like a heart. I can’t wait to do water drops again! You guys rock!

roamin with roman - Bu, rest, bu! Did Nick get the timing down? 🙂 As usual, you never know…..

roamin with roman - It was a blast! I absolutely, positively, knew that bumping the table would do that :)…….not! I call those happy accidents!!!

The Wildebeest Crossing the Mara

My tour to Tanzania had to be the highlight of the 2011 schedule.  That trip allowed me to realize a childhood dream of witnessing the crossing of the Mara River by the wildebeest.  Many of you will recognize the image above as it was my favorite of 2011!  That spectacle left such an impression on […]

roamin with roman - Will have to have Susan make a canvas of the crossing!

Betty Wiley - WOW, Roman…it’s easy to see why the image of the wildebeest crossing was your favorite of 2011…that’s a life-time shot in my opinion. It’s truly spectacular and it almost looks like a painting with that light. Your trips are the best…I’m going to save my pennies so someday I can go on this trip!

roamin with roman - Thanks Betty! It truly was a life long dream to see this!
Looking forward to the fun we’re going to have and getting some killer shots in Florida!

Susan Candelario - Amazing and Stellar images. Never had the good fortune to visit Africa and photograph such amazing scenes… but your images just transported me there. That’s what is all about and as usual you did a great job at it! New item for by bucket list.

Steve - Hi Roman, the above images certain convey the mass hysteria that these animal make prior & during the crossing and the first two images show that. They know they need to make the crossing, however they also know the dangers that lay in wait. Incredible to think they will doing the same thing six months later in reverse. Amazing that herds of 20-30,000+ massing to cross, can soon quickly disappear in a very short space of time, especially when you least expect it 🙂

You need to add sound to these shots to add the icing on the cake.


roamin with roman - Thanks Steve! The whole drama of the story is mind boggling. I do have to start doing a bit of video because the sound is incredible too!
