I have always loved our national parks and the wondrous places our world has to visit. In my 40 years of amateur photographic activities, I have visited many of these places. My desire was to able to capture the beauty and grandeur of these places in my photography.
I am 58 year old former law enforcement officer with over 35 years of experience in that field. I have recently retired from law enforcement to pursue my second love, Photography.
