Watching For Spring


Watching For Spring

Looking out of my son's window with all of the frost outlining the starkness of the tree limbs with only a few left over leaves, I started to remember how beautiful the view in the spring with everything deep green.

On the banks of the Kootenai River reflects nature's filigree. It's colorful yet bare branches remind us of the season.

Rush Ranch Cold, Foggy Sunrise


Rush Ranch Cold, Foggy Sunrise

This was a cold January morning at the ranch and the fog was gently covering the lush green rolling hills. As the sun began to rise, a nice soft array of pastels provided the background. This was a three exposure photograph.

Hilltop Lights


Hilltop Lights

As I stood on the back porch of my house after just getting back from photographing the northern lights because I thought the light show was over, surprise! Out of nowhere, the lights were there again!

Farmhouse And Illuminated Hill


Farmhouse And Illuminated Hill

A break in the clouds illuminated the hillside just beyond this farm for only a brief moment, but long enough to capture this image.

Staircase Sunset


Staircase Sunset

After spending all day in the Olympic N.P. with low clouds and fog overhead it finally lifted in late afternoon. I was hiking along the Skokomish River and was blessed with some great color at sunset

Sandbar Island


Sandbar Island

The most beautiful place I’ve ever woke-up in. After a night on this island by my lonesome spent capturing the starry night I was treated with the most pink sunrise I had ever seen. The sunrise and sunsets in the Philippines are really outstanding. (...

Path Of Light Pano


Path Of Light Pano

I have been visiting this location for some time. Studying it at all hours of the day and through out the different seasons. Never being happy with what I was seeing with the light or the shadows I new there was an image to be created here but that to...

Mallard Hybrid


Mallard Hybrid

I took this picture because the duck was beautiful and I wanted to be able to identify it later. I think this is a mallard hybrid - I learned after taking this picture that mallards breed with about 50 different ducks to produce a wide variety of...

Hidden Falls


Hidden Falls

While I was stationed in Alaska I wanted to get some landscape shots that didn't seem typical for Alaska. I had never heard of any type of rain forest environments in AK, I mean when you think about Alaska you think of snow, cold, and wildlife. I...

Basking In The Light


Basking In The Light

This butterfly was frequenting this bush and landed in a similar pose earlier - but I wasn't ready to take the photo. Hoping he would come back, he did and I was in the best angle to take the shot with the sun behind his wings as well - the "keeper...

Diamond In The Sky


Diamond In The Sky

A couple days ago, I hiked up Mount Takao in Japan. I wanted to watch the sunset and take some photos. However, that day I was running late, my train was delayed by two hours and by the time I made it to the base of the mountain the sun was...

Moment Of Discovery


Moment Of Discovery

This story begins at a waterfall that is different from the one featured in this photo. I could not have known what was in store for me when I decided to make a routine stop at a little-known, unnamed waterfall in the temperate rain forest of...

Really! Eating The California Flower!

During our 2011 Trip to the California Poppy Preserve near the Mojave Desert we came upon a sheep herder moving his sheep through a sparse poppy field. This particular sheep with a poppy in his mouth looked at me as if to say "busted" I know, I'm...

Winter Solstice Aurora


Winter Solstice Aurora

This was taken on a cloudy night with a low to moderate forecast for Aurora Borealis. At times the sky was completely clouded over yet I could tell something was going on because the sky was still lit up behind the clouds. This is one of my favorite...

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...

I took it on small river with prestine waters close to the popular town of Zarcero in Costa Rica.

Cross Country


Cross Country

As a "newbie" to photography, I did not realize how astonishingly difficult it was going to be to capture this the way I wanted it to look. This train was moving nearly 50mph as it roared by. But, luckily I was able to capture what I wanted and all in...
