    Most of my photography is meant to document Nature as I see and experience it. So much of the land and wilderness has already been lost, and even more is endangered by those who wish to feed their addiction to greed, power, and control.

    My hope is to inspire people to protect what is left, and to go out and experience it for themselves.

    Other creative activities include abstract expressionist painter, writer, musician, kayaking, hiking, cooking.

  1. Very interesting subject, Fons! What is it?
  2. They definitely stay inside, but Artemus gets very excited, running around, meowing, and looking out the windows.
  3. The Kittens
  4. Another excellent day of photographing, it seems. Wondering about your IR gear???
  5. Thanks, Mike!
  6. Saturday in the Nature Preserve A beautiful day for connecting with nature, spirit, the elements, rocks, trees, and other creatures. There were even a few wildflowers to add to the experience, along with an encounter with a gopher snake and a huge flock of piñon jays. But the most magical event involved a raven. Whilst at our 100-mile vista lunch stop, it flew overhead and talked to us. Certainly knowing we were watching, it then executed a magnificent 360-degree barrel roll as if to say, "Check this out, friends!" Awesome and deeply moving. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15.
  7. Excellent job!
  8. You never comment or like them anyway.
  9. Thanks, Mike! When I saw the part of the cliff I photographed in #6, I thought maybe the Anasazi used that idea for their own constructions.
  10. The day started in idyllic fashion, with the lake and river like a sheet of glass. Before long, though, fierce headwinds kicked up, and we were paddling furiously in order to make any headway, especially with strong current near most of the river bends. But we persevered, and made it to Medio Canyon. By that time the winds had abated, and we floated downstream for lunch and a short hike at Cochiti Canyon. The towering cliffs and deep blue skies were awe-inspiring, as were the stillness and solitude. What a marvelous place to connect with nature, spirit, and oneself! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.
