I have been taking photographs for over 35 years now. About twenty years ago I began “specializing” in nature photography. For me, the beauty of the natural world is something I want everyone to see and experience. Whether up close and personal or the grand view, sharing my photographs is one way to share my love of nature. Though some people get some beautiful effects using computer enhancement, I do not use Photoshop or special filters and lenses; what you see in my photographs is what I see through my lens. I am a self-taught photographer, so I may do things a little differently from the norm.
