Under The Big Sky


Under The Big Sky

After setting up the tent, I had just enough time to capture a sweeping panorama of Lake McDonald, Glacier National Park, before the clouds moved in. I was rewarded when the Aurora Borealis decided to make an appearance.

"first Impressions"


"first Impressions"

My first adventure to Galcier National Park! Day 1 of our week long backpacking excursion was to Akokola Lake... The beauty was unbelievable, the sensory overload of sights, sounds, and smells experienced I can still feel. Akokola is deeply remote in...

"the Rush Of Life"


"the Rush Of Life"

On our last evening of backcountry camping in Glacier NP, we arrived at the head of Bowman Lake. To this day, probably the coolest secluded site I've camped at and surrounded by such grandeur! This milk colored creek rushed right through the camping...

It was the last day of our weeklong backpacking adventure in Glacier NP, MT... Although a popular attraction, this iconic view of Hidden Lake and its surrounding mountains, meadows, and valleys brought me to utter awe and etched in my soul the spirit...

From my first trip to Acadia NP, Maine. I've since been there three times now and never cease to tire of watching, listening, smelling the waves of the sea come crashing into shore! Acadia's mountains and forests are nothing short of outstanding as...

Wizard Island, Crater Lake, Winter

The weather report I checked just before leaving on my trip said that I'd be in temperatures averaging in the 60's with partly cloudy skies. When I arrived at Crater Lake it was snowing so heavily that I thought I'd need to put the chains on my truck...

Nirvana And Brotherhood


Nirvana And Brotherhood

Driving back to work from an afternoon doctor appointment I crossed Brotherhood Bridge over the Mendenhall River and gasped. I pulled a u-ey (not legally) but so worth it and parked nearby. It's times like these that I'm glad I carry my camera with me...

Cherohala Autumn Snowfall


Cherohala Autumn Snowfall

Snow covered mountains with peak fall colors shining through the snow contrasting with clear blue skies was a unique visual experience. The snowy drive was worth the views.

Winter Begins


Winter Begins

This is Naches Peak as viewed from Tipsoo Lake in Mt. Rainier National Park. On this particular day, we had had a deep freeze with the storm that had hit the Bering Strait. We had high winds, which worked in my favor to blow all of the haze and...

Waiting about 20 minutes after sunset, I was rewarded with a brilliant multi-hued sky over this frozen lake in the northwoods of Wisconsin. This image is a 3 shot composite converted into a 32 bit image in Photomatix. Then reimported into Lightroom...

Smouldering Rock Of El Capitan

Once more, Horsetail fall is dried out. Capturing the beautiful image of the fiery water was not possible for me this weekend. Because of that, I focus on taking shots of part of El Captain reflecting in the Merced River water at sunset. Yosemite...

March Sunset Over Pikes Peak


March Sunset Over Pikes Peak

Sunsets over Pikes Peak seem to be more spectacular in March and September as that is when the setting sun aligns best east to west with the mountain. I noticed that there was just the right amount of clouds forming the evening of March 1, 2013 and so...

I saw this flower in my neighbors growing in my neighbors yard and noticed that the center of the flower reminded me of something. Can you see what you think I saw?

First Light On Longs Peak


First Light On Longs Peak

I took this photo on the first of February this year. A fresh couple inches of snow added to the cold blues of morning, and the first warming rays of the sun cast a subtle pink to the clouds lingering over Longs Peak.
