I’ve been privy to a spate of spectacular sunsets of late. While winter typically brings the goods, over the past seven weeks I’ve had this, this, and this happen; each better than the next. You could say the first rule to making good pictures is being there, and nothing has proven more true. Get out […]
Keep up with my latest photographs and thoughts
Here you'll find my complete archive of photographs—excepting my nine portfolio photos. I welcome you to drift through my array of photographs made since this site's launch in January 2014. While my best work manifests in landscape and nature photography, writing has proved a growing passion as time drifts on. I hope you enjoy.
The stars aligned today. It’s hard to say waking up with a sore throat, beat down from the weekend can be a good thing, but on this day it is so. You see, my misfortunate allowed me to work from home and thereby be local and camera ready for sunset. It paid off. This was […]
Get back to where you once belong I once was a blogger and now I blog again—only this time with photographs. I’d say for the past month or so I’ve been putting slightly more than a passing thought to having my own website once again. In a past life moonlighting as a web designer, I […]
I’ve already mentioned the perilous battery life occurring during this shoot; flashing red lights, double rainbows, and with this included, what amounted to two great shots. It was an embarrassment of riches this day that would have left me angry with myself had my battery expired.
Seldom have a rolled the dice with a minimally charged battery. As a photographer with a habit of shooting sans CF card, I figure the least I can do to bolster my workflow is ensure my battery is charged. Just not on this day. The skies were filled with some ominous clouds this day and […]
I remember photographing this Small Blue butterfly like it was yesterday. She made for the most patient of subjects, giving me a solid five minutes to position, hone in and shoot. I intentionally underexposed for a low key effect, and then in post processing with Sliver Efex Pro 2 I bumped up the brightness on […]
Macro photography of a purple peony backdropped by rich bokeh. In hindsight I’d go back and crop off the top 10% of this photograph to tighten the overall image. I’d probably roll with the 2:1 ratio.
Update:Thanks to Barb for identifying this flower as a Cleome. Looking for some audience help with this one. I have several of these flowers growing wild amongst the stones in my path to the backyard. They put off a strong odor with a hint of skunk, but arrange themselves in the most wonderful spiral array. […]
Macro work has ignited an admiration of flora. My property, once owned by my parents, is lush with plant life. My own personal garden incubated my burgeoning photography skills all throughout 2012. This Spring I hope to dive back in for some more serious macro photography.
I love snow—there’s just no other way to say it. Now that photography has emerged as my latest passion I’ll look to bring together snow and shooting as often as nature allows. Two weeks ago, while exploring the trail at the Ballanger Creek Habitat Enhancement Site with friends, the unsullied trail was coming alive with […]
