Inspiration in Eastern Sierras

North Lake Sunrise North Lake Sunrise Jan 30, 2014 - “My happiness grows in direct proportion to my acceptance, and in inverse proportion to my expectations.” – Michael J.

Bold Coast Trail, Acadia


Acadia National Park is like no other place on Earth. From its mountaintops of rosy granite to its cobblestone beaches, everywhere you turn, you find beauty. Acadia is my favorite location on the Atlantic Coast to photographic magnificent granite rocks and the beautiful sunrise and sunset color contrasts of sky, ocean, and shoreline.


Vermillion Lakes VIII

Canadian Rockies

The sheer number and beauty of lakes, rivers, and mountain views along the Canadian Rockies takes your breath away!  The turquoise color of the glacier-fed lakes is caused by floating sediment that reflects light back up through the water.   These images were captured in August when there is no ice cap on the water.


Eastern Sierra

The Eastern Sierra mountains of California are so full of magnificent features and marvelous views — sunrises, sunsets, mountains, lakes, fall color of aspens and cottonwoods! And the occasional surprises of a clearing storm or an unknown reflective pond.


High Desert

The higher elevation deserts and mountains  are grouped here in this portfolio.  These include National and State Parks and National and State Recreation Areas in the states of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah.

Lots of red rock, aspens, cottonwoods, and clear blue skies!


North America

While I love photographing deserts, mountains, and the oceans, this portfolio brings together many smaller “inland” collections — among them, Cape Cod National Seashore, Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Denali National Park, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Waterfalls of North Carolina, and the Morton Arboretum near my home base.



This portfolio includes iconic scenes of the most beautiful locations of the Southwest — Antelope Canyon, Anza-Borrego Desert, Death Valley,  and Joshua Tree.  These deserts are often referred to as the “low” desert.


West Coast

The coast of Oregon offers so many vantage points for photographing waves, lighthouses, and shorelines.

This portfolio also includes images from further inland, the waterfalls of the Columbia River Gorge.
