Welcome to Kroll Images

All Star Images
I love to explore our world and share my mind’s eye view of it with others.
I am very fortunate to live in a beautiful corner of the planet. The Pacific Northwest is a visual playground with scenic coastlines, wild streams, majestic peaks, and lush landscapes. The towering waterfalls and stunning vistas of the Columbia River Gorge are practically in my back yard and among my favorite destinations. Sports are one of my favorite things to capture, especially action sports like longboarding, triathalons and auto racing.
I’m surrounded by wonderful people, places, and things. It is my pleasure to share my vision of them with you.
I am available for commissioned work including event, concert, wedding, and specified landscape assignments. Contact me via email for details.

Eyes of the Ostrich

Up Close and personal with an Ostrich.

This week’s Image of the Week features a flashback to 2006. Eyes of the Ostrich captures an up close and personal view of a very large bird.

I was on a business trip on the south central coast of California and made a side trip to the bavarian town of Solvang. One of the attractions was OstrichLand USA where I met this very large and powerful resident. I wanted the eyes to be in focus with the beak and background thrown out of focus. I captured the image from about 4 feet away with a long lens extended out to 180mm to give the desired effect.

Technical Specs:

  • JPEG image with Nikon D50 @ 250 ISO
  • Tamron AF70-300 LD Lens @ 180mm
  • 1/500th of a second @ ƒ/4.8
