Wildflowers In Glacier National Park


Wildflowers In Glacier National Park

These gorgeous summer wildflowers are here for a very brief time in the Glacier National Park warm season, which is very short! I got down low and shot across and up so the full landscape could be seen in the view. This scene just shouts "mountain...

Miniature Flower In The Dew


Miniature Flower In The Dew

Before work one spring morning, I happen to see this little wildflower showing proudly with dew drops all around in a field next to the office building I work in. Using an extension tube, I was able to capture this wonderful tiny community of plants,...

Ready For The Wind


Ready For The Wind

This very large cousin of the common dandelion was just in the process of spreading its seeds on the wind close to the top of a high forested ridge to the west of Kalispell, Montana. I lowered the camera to its level and got close with a short...

I See You


I See You

The curious turtle wanted to look at me when I was trying to take a picture of it. It was as their senses where in alert just to say hello to the camara.

Denali Grizzly


Denali Grizzly

A fairly rare glimpse up close of a large grizzly sow. She was about 75 yards away digging in the tundra. I set up my shot braced on the hood of the pickup truck I was riding in, and was patient until she gave me this angle. I wanted to get the colors...

Denali Ram


Denali Ram

Late in the afternoon, this ram decided to pose for me. He was maybe 50 yards away, and clearly the "king of the hill". I've been to Denali Park many times over the last 50 years, and this was the closest I'd seen the Dall sheep. I didn't spend a lot...

Potter Marsh Brown Bear


Potter Marsh Brown Bear

My wife and I go out to the Potter Marsh Wildlife Refuge quite often to walk. This was late in September on a kind of stormy day. It was questionable on whether we'd go out that day but decided to chance it. God rewarded us with this rare site. A...

Potter Marsh Rainbow


Potter Marsh Rainbow

With the late fall storm rolling in from the east & north, I was afforded this great glimpse at a double rainbow over Potter Marsh. What sun there was was brilliantly coming in from the west and lit up the grass of the marsh. Spectacular beauty.

Tracks


Tracks

An old abandoned set of railroad tracks I came across while hiking outside of town. It was a warm summers day and I was hiking trying to clear my mind when I came across them

Untouchable


Untouchable

A large bull thistle causes area grasses to grow around it, to avoid being damaged by its formidable spines. Being a lucky find, all I did here was shoot from an angle that portrayed the depth of the "nest" created by the grasses--a couple strands of...

Bird Emerging From The Mist


Bird Emerging From The Mist

In October, 2015 I was in Garden of the Gods with the intent to photograph some evening/sunset views of the sandstone rocks in that park. However, as I searched the landscape I found that the particulates and the mist around the foothills to the west...

Highland Reflections


Highland Reflections

I was returning from a winter trip to the Scottish Highlands when I saw the stunning colors contrasting with the stark branches reflecting in the River Shiel. I am very drawn to reflections and light. I had not been here before and only spent about an...

The Cypress Woods Reflection


The Cypress Woods Reflection

The Cypress Swamp always offer the reflection on the waters of the woods. It is mysterious and beautiful at the same time.

Storm Over The Salt Marshes


Storm Over The Salt Marshes

The New Hampshire coast contains large sections of salt marsh. A break in the storm was passing over one of the natural channels in the marsh. This was low tide as the water was starting to return.

The Gate Keeper Awaits


The Gate Keeper Awaits

Taking a walk along a trail and found this to be worthwhile subject.

Desolation


Desolation

As viewed from near the trail where I would run on weekends as a grad student, this view of the lone tree would always make me stop and gaze and feel. It spoke to me of desolation; solitude but not loneliness.

Summer Snooze


Summer Snooze

I worked in Yellowstone for one year at Mammoth Hot Springs near the north entrance of the park.The elk herds inhabit Mammoth in the spring thru the rut in the fall. It always amazed me that the elk, wild animals, were so comfortable near the hotel...

Sunset At The Lily Pond


Sunset At The Lily Pond

A pine savanna at sunset reflects in a lily pond in the foreground. I was inspired by the complimentary colors (the orange of sunset against the teal-blue of the lily pads,) as well as the geometric shapes (the lines of the trees, the oblique circles...

I loved the festive mood generated by the shapes here and went with black and white to wrest attention away from color.
