• Mammoth Hot Springs #2

    Once you get above the ashen wasteland, the walkway levels out to show the land and vegetation creeping forward toward the springs. There are peculiar shapes and colors in and around the pools. Dead pools continue to show the ashen remnants of a once-life. Trees have died leaving their archetypal shape. There is a glimpse […]


  • Mammoth Hot Springs #1

    Mammoth Hot Springs in northern Yellowstone National Park is a truly weird place. Fascinating but weird. I did not even know it was there when I drove into the park, although I had heard of it sometime somewhere. I was staying the night in Gardiner, Montana, just north of the park and planned to go […]


  • a day on the south rim of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison

    Since the last post (actually overnight in real life) a snow front moved in. Low clouds, no sunrise, grey and featureless clouds met me as I got up early to go to the south rim. No one was there, except a ranger who told me that there were no fees because of the off-season. I […]


  • a day on the north rim of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison

    These images and those in the subsequent post were taken in 2010. This was my first solo photo op to try to apply some book learning I had acquired. It is so much easier to read about art and photography than to develop one’s skills and practice it. But I knew I had a lot […]


  • Antelope Canyons – then and now

    We are not going to explore the millions of years of erosion and formation of the Antelope Canyons. Instead I am going to describe the amazing transition of tourism to the Antelope Canyons in a fairly brief span of history. There are so many more of us on this planet that it is not surprising […]


  • Mono Lake, California

    Mono Lake in the eastern Sierra Mountains of California is at the western edge of the Great Basin. It is a salt lake, like the Great Salt Lake in Utah, which is on the eastern edge of the Great Basin. The Great Basin is a large basin of land that has no outlet for its […]


  • Sedona mornings

    This project is a compilation from four morning shoots to the south of Sedona Arizona. Each day was unique and offered a different perspective from the usual Sedona images I have seen. On these early spring mornings the light for 10-20 minutes held the most pastel colors I have consistently seen. The Sedona area carries […]


  • Slot Canyon walls

    As you wander down slot canyons and arroyos, you will often see hundreds of millions of years of earth’s history carved by the sand, wind, and waters. It makes one feel quite small. Yet the complexity of the years displays a remarkable beauty. Over the hundred of thousands of years the deposition of the sands […]


  • slot canyons

    The slot canyons of Arizona and Utah hold a particularly important place in my art and in my understanding of experience. My first exposure to them was during my first photography workshop with Alain and Natalie Briot in the spring of 2010, and lttle did I know the impact it would hold. Upper Antelope canyon […]
