You and I are blessed with landscapes that can simply take our breath away, or that move us to moments of reflection at the awe and serenity of a particular scene. While I am inclined to follow other avenues of inspiration and creativity with my photography and writing I too am enthralled at the never ending beauty to be found anywhere ...and, yes, I do enjoy my time alone with nature. I have noticed my work tends to reflect 'slices of intimacy' within the grandeur we see, but ... as you see displayed, I do occasionally find moments of panoramic stunning displays of creation.
While I make attempts to be 'at the right spot at the right time' I also realize, 'I am where I am at this time' ... however imperfect for photography it may seem. So, I discover and bring to life or invent the images I find curious, mysterious, intriguing and harmonious. Later I create what I want to see. Many of my images look totally different from the time of day they were captured. Actually, in my eyes they appear exactly as I want. I am fortunate that way.
I consider myself a very good printer. Years of darkroom printing has a hand in that I am sure. Every print that leaves my studio is exactly as I want it at the time.
