In 2012, after living and working in South Dakota for 33 years, I retired and moved to Colorado. I have always had an interest in photography and bought my first digital camera in 2003. Since then I have been working on my camera technique, post processing skills and acquiring the necessary gear to take my photography passion to the next level. I specialize in wildlife, landscape and nature photography. I've found photographing wildlife very challenging, especially birds. I have many different bird species in my portfolio and many more on my bucket list. I find hiking with my camera very relaxing and enjoy meeting others hiking the same trails. I love our national parks and try to visit as often as possible.

You are welcome to explore the different galleries and enjoy your visit. All my images are for sale and I am constantly adding new images to the galleries so Following me on Facebook is the best way to stay informed of new images to be viewed.

Thank you for viewing my site.
