• 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 […]


  • the last evening at the Dunes

    Another afternoon storm greeted the end of my last full day at the Dunes. I had walked about halfway up the Dunes for an evening shoot only to be greeted by torrential rains. Thankfully I had my rain parka and was kept dry, except for the area below the hemline, which was totally soaked. It’s […]


  • 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 […]


  • rain in the Dunes

    An interesting thing happens when it rains on the Dunes. The outer perhaps ½” becomes slightly caked. It turns dark. And as this caked layer dries out, it starts to break apart. A bit like watching an ice field break up in the water. The ensuing shapes form odd textures and contrasts on the surface […]


  • Great Sand Dunes in Colorado

    I recently went to the 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 […]


  • south of Yellowstone

    Okay, I can’t leave Yellowstone National Park without a picture of some of the buffalo. I came upon a herd that clearly knew they owned the road. So I stopped and waited and waited and… This huge buffalo sauntered by about 10 feet from the car. I must say that it was one of the […]


  • storm clearing over Yellowstone Lake

    The gallery shows the Yellowstone River as it is leaving Yellowstone Lake, as well as some images of the overnight storm leaving the area. The angle of the early morning sun made for a sparkle in the water and trees that drew my eye, attention, and delight. I was headed south from Gardiner, Montana, through […]


  • 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 […]


  • lower Yellowstone Falls and canyon

    After shooting the Mammoth Hot Springs series the previous afternoon and evening, I awoke and left scenic Gardiner, Montana, about 4 am and headed for the lower Yellowstone Falls to catch the sunrise. The road in the park was ridiculously icy as the storm overnight had dumped sleet and snow. So getting to the Falls […]


  • 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 […]
