A beautiful spot on Lake Powell photographed by a beautiful soul @nicolepinophotography. Nicole was recently taken from this world after succumbing to a very brief illness. Fortunately she was at home with her husband Jeff by her side when she passed. All that knew her well knew that Lake Powell ...
Morning sun breaks through the mist in the bayou. This was one of the first photos that I captured from this area a number of years ago and is still one that I look at fondly. For both the memory, and also the conditions that thread the needle of just enough mist and sunlight in the scene. Often ...
The Oregon Coast and California Redwoods: two great things that go great together. Here are some images of my time over the years spent there. What I love about this place is while there might not be ideal weather, there is always something to photograph. My macro lens gets a lot of use here and ...
The stuff aerial photography dreams are made of. Iceland in winter time. These arent braided rivers. Well they were at one time in the past. Go in the summer and this is barren dirt for as far as the eye can see. But in winter, with just the right amount of melted snow filling the remaining chann...

It truly is a marvelous natural playground with endless opportunities for photography and I feel very fortunate to be able to call this place home. Our planet is an enormous place and it ...
A few photos from my many trips to Glacier National Park over the years. Ive visited this amazing place in Montana nearly every year for over a decade now and feeling that crisp mountain air in the mornings with the park full of wildflowers is something that Ill never get tired of. Theres still s...
Today I am finally sharing something that has been in the works for quite some time now. Ive hinted at it over here by sharing just a few stories. I am currently in India, and with a number of big trips under my belt already this year, keeping up with social media and emails has been a bit challe...
A favorite image of mine from a few years back during fall in the Canadian Rockies. The color palette here was just so pleasing to the eye with the warm autumn leaves and cool glacial water. I remember standing waste deep in this water and thinking just how calming and beautiful it was to be ther...
Ive spent the better part of the last two months in the heat of Africa and India and Im really looking forward to cooler temps and wildflowers when I return home to Oregon. Heres a photo from a couple years ago with the spring flowers in the Columbia River Gorge and Mt.Hood in the background. I s...
A final batch of images from my trip to Kenya last month with an awesome workshop group. The wildlife sightings, accommodations, food, service and of course travel companions were absolutely the best. Im very much looking forward to returning again next year at this same time as the final details...
The story of a kill, photographed last month in Kenya. Swipe to see this full scene play out with video from my phone and camera. WARNING it is quite graphic. On this evening our driver got a call on the radio and then it was off to the races. We were one of the first two vehicles on the scene to...
