    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.

    Rio Grande Mudflat

    Back on the River

    After a four-week hiatus, a gorgeous day weather and wind-wise. Lower water levels meant lots more mudflats and shoals to navigate, and strong current in places where the river has narrowed. But there were many Great Blue Herons as a result, along with some Canada Geese, Ravens, and Turkey Vultures. With the recent monsoon rains, the river was carrying lots of reddish silt, which made for a muddy luncheon landing. But there were more wildflowers, and as always, the spaciousness, solitude, and stillness were deeply inspiring. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13.

    Ides of July

    Explored new off-trail areas on our hike today. Some strenuous steep slopes with loose footing, but the adventure was exciting and uplifting. We climbed up to the rock cliffs, and traversed just below them until ascending the chimney to the top of the mesa. What a marvelous place, and so close by. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18.

    Post-Eclipse Petunias

    Thanks, Dallas! I was also struck at how accurate the colours are in all three, without any pp needed trying to match them.

    Deer Creek Canyon in July

    The creek was completely dry due to ongoing drought, but the magic of the tall trees and incredible rocks was deeply captivating. We had the entire place to ourselves, as the forest just re-opened after being closed to everyone because of fire danger. The connections with Nature, Earth, and Spirit led to insights about new directions, helping us to move forward with clarity, vision, and hope. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17.

    The Seventh of the Seventh

    A beautiful day for exploring off-trail areas of the Nature Preserve on 7 July. Being amongst the cliffs, rocks, trees, shrubs, and cacti is always awesome and deeply moving. The stillness, solitude, and 100-mile vistas add to the experience. One can only marvel at the spaciousness and unspoiled manifestations of Nature and Earth, and be filled with gratitude. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20.

    Fourth of July

    What better way to spend a day dedicated to liberation than communing with the elements of Nature and Earth. The mostly overcast skies afforded relief from the intense sun, and the stillness and spaciousness were deeply rewarding. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14.

    First of July, Part One

    Another wonderful off-trail experience on the first day of a new month. We discovered some new places, gamboled amongst the cliffs, marveled at the wonders of nature, and ascended the rock chimney to the top of the mesa. Sublime! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11.
