Why I’m Finally Embracing Lightroom

I constantly struggle with developing my images in Lightroom. It’s not because I don’t know how or that I’m not good at it (I’m not great at it, but that’s has nothing to do with my reasoning,) it’s because I am still working to break my old habit of sharing my images as they’re captured, Read more about Why I’m Finally Embracing Lightroom[…]

St. Mary Falls

The hike out to St. Mary Falls is a nice one, not very challenging, and with a nice reward. If you have the time, and I recommend that even if you don’t, find it, and go on to Victoria Falls. It’s a little further, but as you can see it’s worth the trip.

Sunset Over West Yellowstone

This image was captured in early July, just inside Wyoming near the West Yellowstone entrance. The boardwalk you see is actually part of Two Ribbon Trail. With sunset closing in, we didn’t have time to do this one. We were off to search for dinner and then a place to stay for the night that Read more about Sunset Over West Yellowstone[…]

Jenny Lake Trail

The longest hike of our long road trip was the loop around Jenny Lake in Grand Teton National Park. It started out with every single parking spot and some areas that weren’t, being filled with cars. So, as commited to seeing Hidden Falls as we were, we found the next nearest place we could stop Read more about Jenny Lake Trail[…]

Prairies of Badlands National Park

For my entire life, I have lived in the so called,¬†fly over states. And while they may lack the magnificent mountain vistas of the western states, there are still some beautiful places that can make you feel small in the world. This photo was taken in the western end of Badlands National Park. The prairies Read more about Prairies of Badlands National Park[…]

Grazing Bison

This image, like many I’ve taken was from the road through Grand Teton National Park. While I wish I’d spent more time composing the original shot, I think I was able to crop it decently. One thing I remember from a photography class I took back in high school is the rule-of-thirds. The grazing group Read more about Grazing Bison[…]

Don’t Give Up On Your Dreams

I wonder sometimes, whether or not, this whole photography and writing thing might take me somewhere. I love sharing these experiences with others and do pretty well in person, but writing it down is entirely different, as is finding an audience. I have much to do and much to learn, that much is certain. So, I’d like to embark on an experiment. As an engineer by training, this seems the most logical first step to understand and improve. I invite you to participate and am hopeful that you will invite others to as well.

Two types of photographs

In our living room there are two types of photographs hanging on the walls. There are those of family and friends taken at birthday parties, family reunions and holiday gatherings and then there are those of the beautiful places we’ve been. Each and every photo has a story to tell. There is something distinctly different Read more about Two types of photographs[…]
