to my web site, which documents my explorations of the American West through photographs and writings. Explore & Enjoy!

For me photography is the Art of Seeing.   Inspired by the landscapes of the Earth, I am motivated by curiosity, using a contemplative process to explore the familiar in search of the mysterious. I am not as interested in documenting the literal representation of my subject as its essence.  Photography teaches us how to see, and this enhances the sensual qualities of the visual experience. My photography is not didactic or intellectual, but if it helps people appreciate, love and safeguard our Planet I will have succeeded.

Each box, above, will take you to a different gallery. Some galleries contain stand-alone photographs, while others are photo essays (Grand Canyon, N. Rim; Boulder Open Space; After the Flood; Anza Borrego Desert).  There are short texts in the title/caption box of some photographs.  The galleries are mostly arranged geographically, with some by topic. Please enjoy the visual experience of exploring them.

Clicking on a thumbnail will open a gallery. Your left- right arrows will move you through the photos. Your up arrow will toggle the image title & caption on and off, and the down arrow toggles the filmstrip/slideshow/full screen/image info/ social sidebar on and off. The esc. button or the “x” in the upper right corner will take you out of a gallery photo.

You can navigate the galleries either from this, the home page, or through the Galleries drop down menu.  The image files are big enough to fill a large screen so they may take a moment to download the first time.  This is a work in progress and new material is added regularly, so please “refresh” each time you visit.
