Hi. Kris here. Photography has been a major part of my life since the mid-1980s. The love of nature got a hold of me even earlier. My mom taught me to be kind to all living things (well, except hornets) and helped foster my young curiosity. After a childhood of flower-picking, tree-climbing and toad-wrangling, I still have a fascination with the natural world. I hope that is what you find in my images and writing.
After more than 40 years in New Hampshire I’m now in northern Wisconsin and love it because I’m almost in the middle of nowhere. There are plenty of nature preserves, back roads and quiet waters to explore.
You’ll find me out in all seasons – hiking, kayaking, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Most of the time the camera comes with.
The blog isn’t about me. Not really. Not per se. It’s about how I escape. Civilization isn’t all that civilized if you ask me. So I get out. Not far. Just far enough. To think. To see. To hear. To be.
Then I bring it back.
