And so it begins…

… the last snow storm (hopefully) of the year. We’re supposed to have blizzard conditions starting today thru tomorrow. #hunkeringdown #snowstorm

“Splish Splash” – Shot Shorts

Getting close to birds is a feat in and of itself.

Most, if not all birds, will quickly take flight when you simply look their way. So I knew getting close to a Horned Puffin in Alaska would be challenging.

Early in my career, I made the decision to not have photos of wildlife in captivity on my website. Then, I visited two wildlife rehabilitation organizations in Alaska and saw the amazing work they were doing to help and care for injured animals. I wanted to support their work by not only sharing photos of these amazing animals, but to contribute proceeds of my photography sales to similar organizations. (New in 2019, 10% of the proceeds of each Wallner Photography item sold goes to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), an organization that helps endangered species across the globe. Learn more about worldwildlife.org)

Splish Splash was taken at one such organization in Seward, Alaska – the Alaska Sealife Center, www.AlaskaSealife.org. Inside the center, they have an amazing room for all types of birds who are being treated for various issues and who are on their journey of recovery to be released back into the wild.

Enjoy this Horned Puffin, who helped change my thinking about including images of wildlife in rehabilitation centers on my website.

This photo was recently selected in the 2019 Minnesota Landscape Arboretum Exhibit. Read more about the exhibit.

#MLKDay

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed – we hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.

A photo taken of the spot where Martin Luther King Jr. spoke those very words on Aug. 28, 1963.

#TripTip: To get this photo, arrive early morning at the Lincoln Memorial since the mall fills up quickly with tourists. Most likely, there will be others waiting in line ahead of you to take their photo.

#PearlHarborRemembranceDay – Did You Know …

… Americans found out about the attack on Pearl Harbor over an emergency radio broadcast announcement.

Imagine if news was distributed only over the radio today!

On this National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, we remember and honor the citizens of the U.S. who were killed in the Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii on December 7, 1941.

Below are two photos from the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial in Washington, DC, where there is a stature of a man listening to news on his radio.
