I believe that  photography (my passion) provides me an opportunity to immerse myself in nature and to share with others not just images of what I see but moments of pure joy.   My hope is that as I venture further along the trail that winds ahead, that you will walk with me and that together we will learn to more fully appreciate and understand the gifts of  God’s creation.
