Taking photos in the dark

Scott Stoner and Denise Hackert-Stoner of Naturelogues have been active in the Pine Bush community for many years as volunteer naturalists and as judges for our annual photo contest. Their photography has been exhibited widely in the Capital Region and has been included in many publications, including The Kingbird, Birder's World, National Wildlife, NYS Conservationist, and more.  They have provided much of the photography for the exhibits at the new visitor center at Five Rivers Environmental Education Center in Delmar.

Scott and Denise offer photo prints, note cards, and natural history slide presentations through their website Naturelogues. Their work represents a wide variety of plants, animals and landscapes from all over North America. Naturelogues...bringing you the beauty of nature.
