Nature to me is the smell of the dusty Southwest air...Sunsets...Sunrises...The Mountains...sitting on top of a rock formation that has been on this earth for millions of years, yet we feel powerful having climbed to the top. Watching the shades of day turn from brilliant Pink in the morning to a brite Orange at dusk. Throwing a rock off a cliff knowing the chances no one will ever touch that rock again. To me, these things are what makes life...LIFE. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.

My talents have become over the years, PHOTOGRAPHY. My wish is to show you the passion I see in Nature...the experiences I have had seeing these encounters with Nature. I want to PUT YOU in the places I stood...present to you a story through photos that makes you smell the air...touch the Waterfalls..see the Sunsets...and most of all...say WOW...what a wonderful world we live in.
