Nature's Signs


Nature's Signs

In a rich cove forest of the Appalachian Mountains, a nodding white trillium signals the arrival of spring and symbolizes new beginnings. Growing just inches away from a well worn trail to the base of the falls, it also beckons visitors to enjoy the...

Goats And Poppies


Goats And Poppies

Every April my wife and I travel to Southern California to photograph the poppy fields near the California Poppy Preserve. The last few years have been dry in California and the poppies have been sparse. This year (2014) the poppies were good. As we...

Beautiful spring day and the water lilies were just opening.

Rhododendron Sunset


Rhododendron Sunset

One of my favorite places to visit every spring is the Roan Highlands which has one of the largest natural rhododendron gardens in the world. I was lucky enough this year to catch this great sunset while there were some decent blooms.

Cabin In First Snowfall


Cabin In First Snowfall

On October 6, 2012 there was an early snow, which was very set and heavy. It came at a time of the year when all the leaves were still on the trees and the fall colors were prominent.

Lake Washington Old Pier


Lake Washington Old Pier

I had past this scene many times waiting for the right light. The old pier had always drawn my eye out to the extending horizon. I shot this as the sun faded behind the hillside. 1 sec exposure with graduated neutral density filter on tripod

Heart Of Iris


Heart Of Iris

While laying on the grass one afternoon, I looked up at the Irises looming over me and suddenly saw a heart shape in the way the petals cupped the plant.

New River Gorge


New River Gorge

Taken from an overlook at the New River Gorge in SE West Virginia. I actually stumbled upon this area by accident but the rhododendrons were magnificent and I couldn't miss this bokeh shot with the river winding through the gorge below.

Sunrise Hues In An Sub-alpline Forest


Sunrise Hues In An Sub-alpline Forest

Getting lost after star gazing, we stayed the night under a tree without any sleeping bag braving cold temperatures. The sunrise next day brought warmth and beautiful colors. At the moment, it seemed as if I am watching an Albert Bierstadt painting in...

First Light-mount Rainier

While visiting Mount Rainier Last summer I arose early one morning at 3:30 to make my way to the head of the Pinnacle Peak Trail. The weather conditions were questionable, but hiking up the trail with my headlamp, I was hopeful conditions would favor...

Downtown Portland


Downtown Portland

The yellow from the tree in front of this church was so dramatic against the cold stone of the tower. I have shot this church numerous times on my visits to Portland but this last trip the colors were gorgeous.
