I am a New Mexico based Adventure Riding Outdoor Digital Photographer, always on the qui vive for what Nature and humans provide.   Capturing an image in my camera is but the first step in an artistic process.   That initial bit of information then can pass through countless permutations before being declared complete.   The journey from capture to completion is a lawless territory.
