When I’m not out photographing, I’m participating in my other passion: reenacting the fur trade period of the West in the early 1800s. While on a trip this fall with two friends in the Eagle Cap Wilderness of eastern Oregon, we had broke camp and were in the saddle heading to a lower elevation as a major early storm was moving in. As the snowflakes got bigger and bigger, I could see...

This proud and calmly self-assured coyote posed for me on his log throne set amid the tall pine trees in Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada. And what a beautiful animal he is, showing off his gray, white, and reddish coat and silky white-tipped tail as he gazed intently in my direction. I was pleased to observe that tourists in the area—there are many—respect the animals in the...

Sometimes you can become so consumed with the horizontal plane of good composition that you seldom experiment from different perspectives.

One afternoon while trekking around Black Hill Regional Park with my daughter, Allie, I decided to hold my camera in the vertical position and place it on the ground. While she kept an eye on a grey heron, I kept my eye on the road...

Hustling down through the forest looking for a bald eagle picture opportunity on the Skagit River in upper Washington state, my head spun around as this old 1941 Studebaker truck called out to me.

Being an eye doctor, my first impression was, "Oh, he's blind." Both headlights were busted out, with the wires hanging limp out of the...

I took this picture of my good friend while she was leading a rock route that pushed her skills to the limit. I wanted to be verbally encouraging while she was struggling at the crux, but knew that if I yelled from above her, it would be very distracting. The belayer managed to shout his support to her at just the right time as she worked through the difficult section and finished...

While enjoying a road trip that included 14 states and 6500 miles, I came upon this field of sunflowers near Vivian, South Dakota. I focused on the one sunflower that hadn't bloomed yet. I myself am a late bloomer in that at age...

Driving along busy US 50, I decided to stop in a small town in the Amish country of the Midwest. Spotting the mural on the side of the old building, I parked and grabbed my camera. My wife urged me to hurry as the real horse and buggy might leave. Hopping out of the van, I set the camera up as I hustled to get in position to frame the shot before something could change. Nothing says peaceful...

I have studied and photographed Chesapeake Bay skipjacks for many years and they always provide wonderful subject matter. This image, taken with a Nikon D100, is the bowsprit of one of these workboats in the harbor at St. Michaels, Maryland. At first glance, this photo looks like a confused mess, but on closer inspection, everything is in its place. The sail is neatly stacked or...

Two years ago, in an effort to achieve a more intimate feel to my travel photography, I started taking images of people having fun at state fairs. Although I found it difficult at first to approach people and take their picture at such close range, it is now one of my...

Observant Eye
Touring Nepal in 1994 with a small group of women, I was in awe of the prayer flags flying everywhere--cities, villages, and even remote countryside. My favorite site was the Bodnath Stupa in Kathmandu, where streams of prayer flags caught my eye and where the "Buddha eyes" that adorn the temple followed my every move. I took...
