In The Distance

“let it go – the smashed word broken open vow or the oath cracked length wise – let it go it was sworn to go let them go – the truthful liars and the false fair friends and the boths and neithers – you must let them go they were born to go let all go – the big small...

White Sands Morning

One of my favorite things to do when I lived in New Mexico was to go winter camping in White Sands National Monument. The drive from my home outside Santa Fe took around four hours. The journey, via highways 285 and 54, takes you through some small New Mexico towns...

California Wetlands

Wetlands north and west of Sacramento cover tens of thousands of acres. Although most of these wetlands have disappeared over the 20th century, much remains. They are home to thousands of birds including snow geese, egrets, herons, sandhill cranes, curlews, ibis and...

The Red Road

I have visited this remote  area in Southern Utah many times, and always find new inspiration. The entire landscape is composed of rocks in many shades of red, brown and orange. Light, water and clouds change these shades, so that each visit provides new perspectives...

Sun Splash

It was a short, but steep and slippery hike down to this Oregon beach after a rainy night. On this morning I was rewarded with a glory of sunbeams bursting through trees and fog. When I see a sight like this, I remember that the most powerful images document the...

Rialto Beach, Washington

A beautiful beach on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State, Rialto offers a great variety of sights and sounds.  A broad beach at low tide encourages a long hike, with possible sightings of sea lions, grey whales, a pod of orcas, or sea otters playing in the surf...

Shoshone Tipi

Although it originated with the Lakota, a plains tribe, the tipi was adopted by western tribes like the Blackfoot, Shoshone,  Crow and Cheyenne because of its portability.  I have always liked the image of a tipi set among high mountains in Wyoming and Montana--a...

Desert Bloom

Early one morning after a rainy night in March I hiked a mile or so across the desert to find fields of desert sunflower, primrose, and sand verbena. That's snow-covered Toro Peak in the distance. I returned to the car with my pants soaked from last night's rain and...

Golden Wave

Another image from the Central Coast. I love the ever-changing coastline because instead of moving around, hunting for the right image, I can stay in one place and let light and water bring an image to me! It required several visits at differenct times of the year to...

Golden Light

Winter storms have brought high surf and constantly changing beach conditions. This spot, on the Central Coast, changes every time I visit. I stood here on this tiny beach for over two hours, a cliff at my back, waves lapping at my toes, watching the light change with...
