About Rick Furmanek


As a passionate fan of nature and landscape photography I spend much of my time wandering the desert Southwest in search of inspirational composition. I've listed a few recognitions here. I count each and every compliment and/or award a special honor. Note, that I have chosen not to add links to the images referenced below, since not all browsers support URL links in this bio format. Rather than run the risk of frustrating you by telling you to click here, and when you do, nothing happens, I've just indicated where each image can be found in a particular gallery.

'A Technicolor Sky' was featured on the Weather Channel's, 'Wake Up with Al,' TV show. Only twice have I witnessed such brilliant magenta and cyan colors manifested in a sunset. I'm fortunate I had my camera in hand to record it. This image can be viewed in the Abstracts gallery.

The image titled, 'The Perfect Storm,' was captured during summer thunderstorm NE of Roswell, NM. In a miracle of timing a falling star appeared for a moment right above the thunderhead. This piece has been selected to be a part of the National Geographic Creative Collection. Here's a blurb from NG's site: 'Showcasing the work of hundreds of award winning photographers, the National Geographic Creative photography collection spans National Geographicís 125-year history and embodies the global vision, spirit of adventure, and credibility for which we are recognized worldwide. The imagery portrays the planetís diverse peoples, creatures, and landscapes as only National Geographic can.' This image can be viewed in the Weather gallery.

My 'Primal' image of two bison sparring in Hayden Valley of Yellowstone was selected as Outdoor Life Magazine's Photo of the Year. This image can be viewed in the Wildlife gallery.

In my work, 'A Quiet Place,' autumn arrived in spectacular fashion in the White Mountains of Arizona. This piece was featured in the March '12 issue of Outdoor Photographer magazine. This image can be viewed in the Autumn Colors gallery.

'Desert Moon,' a desert Southwest (Arizona) piece, was selected as an Earthshots Photo of the Day. The serene moment was a wonderful treat for the senses as the desert began to come alive at day's end. This image can be viewed in the Painted Skies gallery.

My 'North American Robin in Song' image has been selected to be a part of the National Geographic Creative Collection. Here's a blurb from NG's site: 'Showcasing the work of hundreds of award winning photographers, the National Geographic Creative photography collection spans National Geographicís 125-year history and embodies the global vision, spirit of adventure, and credibility for which we are recognized worldwide. The imagery portrays the planetís diverse peoples, creatures, and landscapes as only National Geographic can.' This image can be viewed in the Feathers gallery.

While you are here, consider checking out all my galleries. Note I will be uploading new pieces regularly, so please plan to visit often.

I am originally from Oklahoma and now make my home in the desert Southwest.

Peace,
Rick
