• Goodbye, Farewell and Goodnight

    Krahnpix was always an odd combination of wildlife photos and my eclectic version of wit. I’m pretty sure I was the biggest fan. I suppose that was a natural outcome of pouring my heart and soul into a project. Through good times and bad, I passionately chased wildlife, learned a few tricks of the trade… Continue Reading

  • The Other Side of Spring
