The Linn Cove Viaduct on the side of Grandfather Mountain during peak fall foliage. I was able to get up the Blue Ridge Parkway and into the Grandfather Mountain and Rough Ridge area with my good friend Mark VanDyke this year. Mother Nature didn't...

Early morning fall foliage at Table Rock State Park in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Upstate South Carolina. I love this spot by Table Rock in the colorful autumn foliage. I named this image balance not only because of the obvious reflection that...

The Blacksmith's Shop


The Blacksmith's Shop

I pass by this old building every morning on the way to work. There was always something about the weathered boards and rusty metal that would catch my eye. I've seen this picture in my mind in all seasons for years but never seemed to take the time...

The Hemlock Grove


The Hemlock Grove

Literally on the side of the road, these old Hemlocks look rather drab most of the year. But after a fresh snow, this small patch of woods magically transforms with a stark pattern of verticals and a hash of dark and light horizontals.

Nothing like a rural New England road in the fall.

Vineyard, El Dorado Hills

My last day in Italy, I planned to take a leisurely drive on the backroads and capture some landscape shots. I awoke to fog and drizzle, which didn't let up till almost noon. Frustrated by passing up so many possibilities, I took a chance and tried...

Sunrise Over The Beckler River Valley

I spent the night on top of this 5,500' mountain photographing the stars through a very clear night. But the morning sunrise was even more glorious than the night skies! There was a temperature inversion overnight that forced the daily marine layer...

Frosty Morning


Frosty Morning

The weather man called for a very cold night with clear skies the next morning. I knew this was a likely mix for fog and frost to freeze to vegitation. I got up early and was rewarded with several keepers as the sun cleared the mountains and spilled...

Early Winter Morn


Early Winter Morn

Another frosty morning south of Stevensville on the Eastside highway. The diverse mix of fauna and deciduous trees caught my eye and I set up next to the creek to connect the blue to the fore and back ground.

The view from my home, this shot looks south. I was awake one early morning and the moon was hovering over the mountains. Just seemed to sit there, calling. So I took this shot.

An American Autumn


An American Autumn

On a late September morning in 2010 I spotted this American flag flying above some of the changing aspen trees along the Gold Camp Road. There was very little wind but I waited until there was enough of a breeze to at least partly unfurl Old Glory.
