Clouds 2001

In 2001 I had a daily commute of 50 minutes to go 50 miles.  Not bad when you compare it to others who commute 50 minutes to go half that distance.   On my way home during the winters I saw some great sunsets and clouds that were lit-up by the setting sun.  I took these... Continue Reading →

Ferns 2018

Remember my post "Montana Road Trip II (part 3)"?  I had driven back to Glacier National Park in hopes of catching some autumn color but I was met with a the most dreary day.  It had me very depressed that I would not find anything worth photographing.  Boy, was I wrong. The super gray lighting... Continue Reading →

Snow Tire

After one of Denver's weekend snows, I went for a walk.  The was fresh enough and the day young enough that only a couple of people left their tracks in the snow.  Someone on one of those mountain bikes with the mega fat tire had broken the trail.  The snow was of the perfect consistency...

A Rare Look at the Original Image

I have great respect for painters who take a blank canvas and create wonderful images.  Sometimes I feel photographs and photographers are discounted because "all they do is click the shutter."  So let me confirm that is not how I develop and create my photographs. Many of my photographs only start out with a click. ... Continue Reading →

Grand Canyon, Phantom Ranch

My legs, in particular my knees were at their end and turning my hike down the South Kaibab trail into an endurance test.  I had devoured my lunch.  As I advanced forward 50 to 100 yards at a time before needing a rest, I was still a good hour from the Colorado River. I had... Continue Reading →

Backyard 2018 pt2

Below are the images that first caught my eye in my backyard.  As I mentioned in the previous blog, it was late afternoon after we have came back from the Great Sand Dunes of Colorado.  I'm not sure why I was drawn the these plants but I was. It has taken me several weeks to... Continue Reading →

Composition Lesson – August Lake 1990

“August Lake” was about that quiet early morning hours in northeastern Ohio when fog raises from the warm lake water as the summer nights begin to cool foreshadowing autumn and the end of summer.  I was looking back through my image files and came across the original chrome (aka slide) of “August Lake”.  I first...

Calabasas 1988

A year before I left LA in 1988, I had the opportunity to photograph some landscapes in Calabasas, CA west of the city.  It was an early summer morning and the fog was lingering.  The fog gave a great quality of light and one I had not photographed before.  I loved it. Interestingly, a year... Continue Reading →

Now What? Confinement.

Have you ever had a dream?  A dream of achieving a goal in your personal life or career, and then found that you accomplished it.  Or perhaps you realized the dream was more about the journey and not the destination, and now the journey is over.  But for what ever the reason, you come to...

Montana Road Trip II (part 2)

I woke up the following morning in Sheridan Wyoming.  The previous evening I spent two hours backtracking up to Casper to get on I-25 which was the faster route to Glacier although now it would only save me two hours instead of four off the route I had first headed-out on.  After a quick hotel...

Montana Road Trip II (part 1)

Over the first weekend of October 2018, I took a road trip from Denver, Colorado to Glacier National Park.  The dates for this trip were first set for the end of September but job and life required that I postpone it a couple of weeks.  Prior to leaving, I checked the weather maps and saw...

6 Days and 3000 Miles in 12 Photos

  On a mid-June morning in Oceanside CA, I began filming my first full-length documentary. For the next 6 days I shot videos and stills as four women and twelve crew members raced across America.   Hours after the start the racer sees her first sunset.   Bikes and rider loaded in the follow vehicle,...

Rock Moss Review by LensCulture

Rock Moss is a series of 14 images I took while visiting Glacier National Park in July 2018. It was a rainy day when I came across areas that had exposed rock with contrasting green vegetation. It reminded me of my Loveland Pass 2014 series of lichens on the continental divide and a close-up photo... Continue Reading →
