• another Grand Canyon evening

    This series of images shows the progression of the sunset light on the view we had that evening. The colors and contrast clearly change throughout the sunset. I have had others comment that shooting at the “golden hours” of sunset and sunrise was somehow cheating. I have never understand that critique, unless they were just […]


  • January 2018 print of the month

    Occasionally “serendipity” provides moving and beautiful moments. You just have to keep your eyes open and hope not to drive off the road, while doing so. Particularly at the Grand Canyon it would be a disaster… We were returning from morning shoots and a photo review, and suddenly the clouds parted and a rainbow appeared. […]


  • a clearing day along the south rim

    [Sorry about the time away, but there were technical difficulties here at the studio. If I weren’t so convinced I could upgrade my system better than a computer pro, I wouldn’t have lost a month. Inanimate objects seem to keep me humble. But now things are back up and running, so I’ll be catching up.] […]

It couldn’t have been timed more perfectly as the first night brought storms in from the west and showed an intensity that is not often seen. The Grand Canyon […]


  • 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 […]


  • 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 […]


  • 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 […]
