Photography is my bliss, and sharing images of our surroundings is my passion. My focus is on the environment, especially the beautiful skies through the seasons, as well as flowers, birds and the landscape.
I use my camera as an artistic tool, using my lens to wonder through a world which has unlimited interpretations, opening doors to scenes that are both real and imagined, large and small, thought provoking and humorous. Making images is surely a most rewarding way to become intimately involved with nature and experience firsthand what is most important in our world.
I hope to encourage others to take their own artistic journey.
