• lines in the Dunes

    I went back to sand dunes to reconnect with my artistic perception of life because of a break-thru experience I had at White Sands National Monument about 5 years ago. I discovered at that time that I loved lines. And sand dunes had clear cut lines like nowhere else. Leading lines are one of my […]


  • Great Sand Dunes in Colorado

    I recently went to theĀ Great Sand Dunes for 3 days and 2 nights for my first photo op in a long time. It was a good and challenging experience. The Great Sand Dunes dune field is about a 5 x 6 mile semi-square. The Dunes reach a peak of over 600 feet above the valley […]


  • a brief post about a small waterfall in the Park

    There seem to be a gozillion little turn-offs in Yellowstone National Park, some only one car wide and a few cars long. It also seems that it would take several months to stop at all of them and spend the time to truly appreciate where they lead. I have heard stories of Yellowstone being so […]


  • 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 […]


  • Mammoth Hot Springs #4

    This small collection is about as impressionistic as I get (so far). However looking into the water as the overhead light changed made for some images that were more abstract and impressionistic. These pools seemed to draw one’s attention into its colors and depths. Several of them remind me of a contemporary painter named Cosmina, […]


  • 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 […]


  • 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 […]


  • 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 […]


  • 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 […]
