With Unpredictable Results

Fall is one of the most productive...well, if I can call it that, times for me as a photographer.  There are so many things that catch my eye and the season is so volatile that there is a surprise almost every day.  Here's a few of my favorite catches. Early in October things are still... Continue Reading →

I’m not Ansel Adams but…

An online photographer friend said that he doesn't do much black and white landscape work because he feels he needs the color to be there because it was there.  I agree with him up to a point.  No, I'm no Ansel Adams, but I do like how a black and white photograph can work when...

This first one I shot today while out in the afternoon.  Those shadows are hard to beat.  The... Continue Reading →
