Judd Patterson
United States
I work for the U.S. National Park Service (unfortunately most of my work is inside), and I spend my spare time trying to capture inspiring photographs. My goal is to create images compelling enough to advance the preservation of our natural surroundings. My deepest peace comes when I'm immersed in nature...whether that is walking through waist-high prairie grasses, wading in tanin-stained swamps, or scrambling over treeline in the mountains.

Thanks so much for viewing and commenting on my work!

I just finished organizing my 2009 photographs in Lightroom, so I thought I'd share a summary. I was extremely fortunate to travel for both work and fun. The result was 35,330 photographs from six states and three countries. Arizona and Costa Rica were brand new locations...each harboring an amazing diversity of wildlife. Everglades National Park in Florida was once again the spot that I visited most frequently. It's hard to beat a 1.5 million acre playground...even if the mosquitoes are a little vicious.

  • United States (31,401)
  •    Arizona (1,940)    Colorado (5,107)    Florida (20,609)    Kansas (2,535)    Oregon (956)    Washington (156)
  • Costa Rica (3,825)
  • Cuba (4) - flying over!

I'd say I maximized use of my three weeks of vacation!! :)

Highlight - Standing on a hillside in a Costa Rican cloud forest watching 8 Resplendent Quetzals lazily moving around a tree...or maybe it was that moment when the glowing sun-orb slid right behind the lighthouse in the Dry Tortugas...or maybe it was the conversation that I had with a White-tailed Ptarmigan family up at 12,000 ft...or.......

Hi! I just wanted to say your photography is so beautiful and compelling! You are so lucky to be able to work with the U.S National Park service, even if it is indoor! Like you, I am at my best when I am immersed in nature, and hope to have a career with the Florida Wildlife Conservation Commission, as a Wildlife Officer, so I could be outdoors at all times! Keep up with the beautiful photographs! X3
