Seeing the elk at the wintering grounds at the National Elk Refuge was high on my list for my return to Grand Tetons, Wyoming. Last October, they had not returned there yet, and although we saw them, it was often at some distance. Elk were also spied at the Gros Ventre area, but the numbers at the refuge were plentiful. Mixed in we saw some pronghorn antelope at a distance.

Nature, animals, beauty have been a source of nourishment throughout my life. Photography allows me to capture, interpret, and share that world of wonder I see about me, and sometimes use what I capture as an inspiration to create something new, by incorporating other exposures, textures or brushwork.
I currently reside in Oregon, an environment rich in nature's graces. I have lived in California and New York, too, and everywhere there is a world of beauty around us, if we care to take the time and look for it.
