I am an avid hiker and my true passion is photography. I love to capture the vast world of nature all around us. Nature has always been a draw to me, it has an inherent beauty that I learned to appreciate at a very young age. It offers wonderful surprises at every look, every step, along every path, and in every corner and crevice. With a camera in my hand, I see things I would possibly never see other wise. I love to seek out those hidden beauties as I might just be walking a short distance down a path, along a stream, or through a woods, examining at length everything from lichen and algae growing on a rotted log to pebbles lining a brook, unique reflections in the water, or I am hiking the mountains of places like Colorado seeing the glorious vistas, thunderous waterfalls, or glacial lakes it has to offer. I love to hike but even more I love to capture these images and share them with all of you to bring that story, that emotion, that sense of awe, that sense of peace and calm, that I have gotten to experience when I step out into the wondrous world of nature around us.
