• December 2017 print of the month

    This picture was one from an early spring hike into Devil’s Head Fire Tower along the Colorado front range. It is not such a long hike except for the fact that the Forest Service closes the access in winter to the campground only a mile away from the watch tower, effectively making it a 4+ […]


  • November 2017 print of the month

    This image was taken on the first evening I went to the Great Sand Dunes National Park in September 2017. I went to remember the lines in nature. This image holds both the randomness and the mystique of winds, sand, time of year, and time of day. All came together in a manner that makes […]


  • October 2017 print of the month

    This month’s print is from a sunset shoot on the north rim of the Grand Canyon in later August. It was at the end of the monsoon season, a roughly 2 month period when the Canyon gets the most rain. It officially runs from mid-July to mid-September. This picture was taken after almost 2 weeks […]


  • September 2017 print of the month

    This month’s print is the second print from my White Sands experience. These two images represent <1% of the total number of shots during my time there. I have heard it said that 1-3% of images taken (by advanced practitioners) are worthy of a fine art categorization. I was shooting with the sun coming up […]


  • blog vs. print of the month

    Several have asked why the blog posts are not in concert with the prints of the month. That is a very good question, so I felt like writing a brief post about the answer. Basically, there are two lines of conversation in my site. The blog posts are stories of my photographic journey. Sometimes they […]


  • August 2017 print of the month

    This month’s print of the month is part of a breakthru series of images I created at White Sands National Monument in southeast New Mexico, outside of Alamogordo. “Breakthru” means one of those “ah-ha” moments when the light turns on and a new way of seeing or understanding happens. My time at White Sands was […]


  • July 2017 print of the month

    This month’s print comes from a fall expedition to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison. The Black Canyon is a dizzying 2000 foot deep canyon carved along a fault by the Gunnison River. Much like the Grand Canyon, traveling from the south rim to the north rim requires at least 60+ miles and 2-3+hours. I […]


  • June 2017 print of the month

    This month’s print of the month is a divergence from the Southwest’s arid and rocky forms and colors. I have always liked leading lines when I compose an image, as they lead the viewer into the image. I have loved photographing trails for the simple reason that they are leading lines. This month’s print is […]


  • May 2017 print of the month

    This print again shows the magnitude, movement in stillness, and color of Upper Antelope Canyon. Light shafts occur less than 30 minutes each day. So being there was a special experience. In this case, the light shaft was illuminated by sand and dust being blown from above and not by the guide throwing sand into […]


  • April 2017 print of the month

    They have been called the “traveling rocks” or “sailing rocks”. They reside at the Racetrack in eastern Death Valley National Park. It is a good 3+ hours from Furnace Creek, and 1 1/2 hours of which is high clearance, 4-wheel drive road. It is 26 miles from the highway turnoff. I took my upgraded 4-Runner, […]
