Oregon Coast Workshop review

Posted by on Jul 30, 2013 in Articles | One Comment

Another Oregon Coast Workshop has come and gone and another 14 people introduced to my curse of bad sunsets. Oh, well- Brenda and I do the best we can and the weather Gods just don’t cooperate. This is not to say that the participants didn’t get some spectacular images. They did! Despite some heavy clouds […]

It has been a magnificent year for wildflowers in the high country of Colorado. I haven’t been photographing much but I have been spending a lot of time hiking through the beautiful meadows.

3 Degrees of Seperation

This is how things happen to me and quite regularly it turns out. I find it wonderful. So wonderful that I thought I’d share the story. One of my all time favorite movies is The Legend of Bagger Vance, directed by Robert Redford and starring Will Smith, Matt Damon, Charlize Theron and Jack Lemon. It […]
