Photography is a means of communicating and making a connection with the viewer. The magic of springtime wildflowers, a gorgeous sunset on a cold wintry morning and the return of snow geese are moments to be captured and shared. The satisfaction of sharing the beauty of the earth is priceless. Over the past 35 years, I have had the opportunity to travel the world. In addition to my interest in nature, an appreciation for the nostalgia of history influences my photography. I cannot pass an old barn, an old cemetery, or even an old car without stopping to study and ponder the stories those subjects hold.
