Wow, Conrad, that's a pretty incredible turn of events...simultaneously sad (that you lost interest), tragic (that you lost images), redeeming (that you regained interest), and amazing (that you put together this stellar collection of images in such a short time)!

I just took a quick look at your fb page...I think the secret to your success (with autos, photos, work, and life) is that you probably never sleep!

That is quite the story Conrad, and quite the commitment to "recover" your lost files. I wish you well in fulfilling your plans. This set is stellar, with too many good shots to start picking favorites. Good looking mobile blind too!

Hello Buddy. I'm so glad that we finally got together after so many years of "jawing on the phone, PMing, and Emailing each other.

Shooting with you was a "hoot", just like the owls that we were shooting.

I'm so glad that you got back into nature photography, it's been an FM loss without you.

I'm sure that your future photos will be even better than your past, even though the past was excellent.

Conrad great to see you back on FM and you're off to a great start.
I was saddened when I found out about the theft, I could only imagine
how I would have felt. Great reason/excuse for a world wide photo tour
The Acorn and Magpie are my picks

Hi Conrad,

I was saddened to read your story. What a crushing development! As someone else mentioned, CrashPlan is an excellent online backup option. I vetted several before landing on this one. I keep several TBs of work and fledgling photographic efforts backed up automatically -- and it's quick after you initially seed your data. The big thing is you have piece of mind that one of your backups is somewhere different than your originals.

The silver lining is that you have your gear, and obviously still capable of producing some of the best work seen at FM!

Having read it before doesn't make it hurt less...and I wasn't even there. I can see why you wanted to take a break, and why that would make it even harder to get back to it. All of us are glad you did. What you really need now is to add a kayak rack to the roof of that beast, give you a chance to reach new locations, and a way to relax if by some strange occurrence your not shooting. As usual...all great looking images, more importantly...glad you've had a refresh.

Glad to hear you're back Conrad. I always look forward to seeing your posts. Maybe we'll run into each other when you come to Long Island.

A nice rebound from tragedy Conrad.

Hopefully the readers will look to their own storage systems and review the need for having redundant backups kept in separate locations .

Because of your extensive experience, resources and repertoire I'm sure that we will be seeing some spectacular work.

Hang in there buddy.
