Click on the Coming Up Button above and you'll be taken to my Facebook page where you'll find the latest news and links to the best photography, nature and travel sites on the web. Celebrating America's National Parks, a book on which I collaborated with Clyde Butcher (his images, my words), has been released. This volume features parks ranging from Maine’s Acadia to Alaska’s Denali to Florida’s Everglades. Shared alongside Clyde's exquisite photographs (the work of more than 50 years) are the fascinating details I discovered on the histories and heroes, flora and fauna, landscapes and legends of each of the included parks. The volume placed first in the category of "Professional Book-Nature" in the 2017 International Photography Awards competition. Visit

I have spent delight-filled days recording, through my camera’s lens, glorious natural wonders from the majestic Grand Canyon to the hoodoo-filled Bryce Amphitheater, from the lush and soul-soothing Smoky Mountains to the barren salt flats of Death Valley’s Badwater Basin, from the sanderling-bedecked white sand beaches of Topsail Island to the other-worldly cinder gardens and lava fields of the Craters of the Moon.

 

Along the way, my love of wildlife and wild places has deepened into a more fervent advocacy and my love of photography has developed into a deep passion. I am currently on hiatus in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire.  I pray the images and words on these pages—images of and words about wild places, wildlife, roadscapes, waterscapes, kitsch and sundry—will speak to your heart and mind and elevate your spirit.
