This is a recent photograph of two ravens at  Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park to whet your appetite.

I've been slow to post lately because I was traveling in California earlier this month. While I was away, I photographed crows and ravens as part of a personal quest I'm undertaking. I've made it my mission to study my finely black-feathered friends as part of a project that is part artistic and part scholarly.

You will see some of the fruits of my project here on Pull of the Tides in the coming weeks.

In the meantime, I am in the final stages of a draft article on a topic that is proving to be far more interesting than I could possibly have imagined when I began researching it: mudlarking.

If you are wondering what the heck this is, or are curious just what I'm going on about, check out this well-illustrated New York Times article.

More very soon,

  1. I love ravens, and have ever since I saw the ravens at the Tower of London when I was a kid. Can't wait to see more pictures from your new project :) Mudlarking sounds fun, I'd love to read your article when it's done.
