Welcome to my galleries where I hope to share whatever Visual project I am developing. As long as I can remember, I have maintained a love of Light and the beauty that it bestows upon whatever it touches. Composition and Color are mostly supporting actors in many of the scenes that appeal to me.
What a strange year 2020 was, yet still photographically adventurous for me. A friend and I just completed a wonderful 22 day trip that included Amsterdam, Tanzania, and Zanzibar on the 29th of February when our world began to change as the Covid virus took hold. And yet, I found a way to visit and explore many places closer to home that had long been on my wish list such as nearby Mt. Lassen national Park , a quiet jewel hidden away in NE California . Later, in September we spent a little time at Oregon's coast and photographed the Milky Way over Whaleshead beach. In December this very shot was chosen by Oregon's Secretary of State to be the cover shot for Oregon's 21-22 Blue Book.
Earlier, during the Winter of 2019, I traveled to Peru and the Galapagos with a friend, Susan Tilley. We added on to our tour with a quick trip to the southern deserts of Peru so that we could fly over the mysterious Nazca lines. Peru was wonderful, the stonework is incredible, the country is varied with 3 major climate and geographical regions though we did not take in the Amazon part. Ecuador's Galapagos was every bit as special as expected.
I maintain an active presence on Facebook where I am still unpacking last winter's travels.
