Hey Baby You're Playing Our Song

Two days before we launched our website, I was visited at my home by a high-speed miniature pollinator. In this shot, she appeared to be more interested in my camera then her food. With a twinkle in her eye, she was named #02 TwinkleBell.

Electrified Splatter of Color

I continue to experiment with a new water pattern and medium in a creek found along the Switzerland Trail near Nederland, Colorado. The sun's rays combined with the speed of the water brought forth an electrified abstract splatter of color in #23 Razzmatazz

Indian Creek, Montana Reveals Illusive Images

One hot summer's day in search of a waterside camp site we came into a place called Dead Indian Wilderness.  I felt the name to be quite disrespectful so I am calling the location Indian Creek.  I played in the creek capturing illusive images which came and went in the spaces found behind falling water.  #15 Alchemy and #02 Odyssey are the perfect depiction of this beautiful camp spot.

Magic in Magnificient Montana

On our way back from the Lazy EL Ranch we crossed a small runoff creek just outside the small town of Painter, Montana.  Something drew me to turn down a dirt access road which paralleled the creek.  As I traipsed through the forest and down the rocky embankment, I was drawn to a section of the creek that held the surprise - beautiful pink granite smoothed away by water's age-old touch.  Here I found #01 Providence and it's inner dimension #04 Inner Providence.

Recent Travels to Montana

WOW, what a place.  No wonder it’s called BIG SKY country.  I was invited to capture unique images that highlight the heart and soul of the Lazy EL Ranch (www.lazyel.com) which has been in the same family for over 100 years.  I had the privilege of experiencing the open land, rugged territory, majestic mountains and friendly folk while visiting the Ranch.  I captured some fresh images of water flowing through pink granite in glacial rivers and natural springs.  The colors and inner images that emerged reflected the grandeur of the area. Not only did I get what I had hoped but some of them made it in to my favorites section in my Facets of Nature collection.  One of them is #05 Masquerade. The collection of images was presented to the family in celebration of their heritage and love of the land.

Recent Travels to the Grand Canyon

In June I returned from my eighth trip white water rafting the Grand Canyon for 16 days. I chose not to captain a boat for the first time to dedicate my time to my photography and taking in this magical place. The images I came back with were awesome! My favorite place was a short hike on the upper part of the canyon called Clear Creek. There were so many diverse rocks and settings. I was like a kid in a candy store with not enough money to buy everything I wanted. I walked away with my favorite image so far called #01 Enchantment as a close runner-up to my all-time-favorite, #02 Delicious Ambiguity.
