Email Naturescapesphotography Photography has been my passion and joy for more years than I care to count (since I was 13). I go to extremes to obtain the images you see on these pages. It seems as if every adventure into the wild has resulted in at least one truly memorable moment. Some I wish I’d never had, but the vast majority are immensely satisfying. My lifelong interests in nature and the outdoors have culminated in an extraordinary journey. Photography has taught me much about life and the lesson isn’t over. The journey truly is the destination for me. I personally captured every image you see on my web site. Each is original and unique in its own way.
