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...
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.
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.
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.

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
This past spring, I photographed several areas in and around the Columbia River Gorge. This particular morning was, for sure, a highlight of that trip. The balsamroot and lupines atop Rowena Crest, overlooking the Columbia River, were at peak bloom,...

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.
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.
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...
Wildflowers glow in dawn light as the rising sun paints the sky behind Mt. Shasta in vivid yellow/orange in contrast with the shadows, which reveal the rich blue color of the morning sky.

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...
Shot this guy in my front yard, I really like the way that his orange coloring and the yellow of the dandelion popped against the green of the grass.

We don't get many Viceroy butterflies in our yard so I couldn't pass up the chance to create this photo.
