During a trip to Alaska in 2002, my childhood passion for nature and photography were re-ignited. Alaska, a land of pristine beauty, misty fiords, crystal glaciers, and soaring eagles, is Mother Nature at her best!!
Immediately following the Alaska trip I purchased a new camera, and began photographing nature – landscapes, birds, flowers and natural abstracts.
I see birds and nature as elements of time . . . unique moments that represent part of the great cycle of life. Through photography I hope to share some of these unique moments. I am awestruck when I see in my mind’s eye events that represent this cycle.
Imagine observing an Osprey circling a lake and looking for a fish to eat. This graceful large bird of prey swoops down over the lake, hovers and uses its talons to grab the fish. Moments later a female mallard with brand new ducklings steps off of the shore for the first family swim. These two events illustrate the cycle of life.
I hope that you enjoy sharing the moments in time captured on this website.
My images have appeared in Nature Calendar’s and Audubon material. I have presented numerous slide shows to organizations, sharing my passion for nature and birding, and helping create this passion in others. Most recently my images appeared in the Allen Philharmonic Symphony Live Project - Allen, TX.
