The Colors of Autumn

|

“How beautifully leaves grow old. How full of light and color are their last days.” John Burroughs It is interesting that nature bursts forth with spectacular color as it awakens – and once again as it prepares to go to sleep. It’s unfortunate that neither display lasts very long, but then again, maybe the fact … Continued

The Setting Sun

|

From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the LORD is to be praised. Psalm 113:3 Here in the Intermountain West, the smoke from wildfires burning in California has returned. It had finally cleared out at the beginning of the month, but shifting winds brought it back (though … Continued

Infinite Beauty

|

Nature is painting for us, day after day, pictures of infinite beauty. ~ John Ruskin This is so true. One need not jet off to an exotic location to see beautiful sights; they might be just outside your door. Take the time to notice nature! I made the image featured here back in Illinois last … Continued

Look Up

The sky is the ultimate art gallery just above us. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson I could not agree more! What’s happening above is integral to a landscape photographer, whether or not the sky is going to be included in the image. I’m a big fan of clouds, and it’s always a treat to witness a magnificent … Continued

Summer in the Mountains

|

Come and see what God has done… Psalm 66:5 I made this photograph almost exactly one year ago. The monsoonal conditions last summer were much better than they have been so far this season. Once July rolls around, there is typically a good chance you’ll see nice cloud production over the mountains in the afternoon, … Continued

Come and See

|

Come and see what God has done! Psalm 66:5 I was in Alaska recently on a photo shoot. Icebergs are prevalent this time of year at Tracy Arm Fjord near Juneau (about 45 miles to the southeast). On this day, the stormy skies, further darkened as the sun occasionally poked through the thickening overcast, made … Continued

Something Marvelous

|

“In all things of nature there is something marvelous.” -Aristotle I recall how awe-inspiring it was the first time I laid eyes on the Teton range. The lack of foothills on the eastern side makes for quite a dramatic view of the mountains (that said, the peaks are equally beautiful on the western slope). After … Continued

This Beautiful Season

|

  As day breaks over a field of wildflowers in New Hampshire’s White Mountains, dew clings to individual blades of grass. Every season has its unique beauty, but this time of year outdoes itself! You’ll see this image featured in one of our teacher appreciation plaques: Follow the link to view the collection: Teacher Appreciation … Continued

Nature’s Beauty

|

  “In all things of nature there is something marvelous.” -Aristotle I had the opportunity recently to photograph the majestic sea stacks at Bandon Beach on Oregon’s southern coast. Another of the countless wonders which God has created! The beauty of nature is always there, just waiting to be admired – and it can be … Continued

Welcome, May!

|

Every month has something wonderful to offer. For my money, though, there is nothing like the month of May. I worried a bit that moving to the high altitude of the Intermountain West might put a real damper on my favorite time of year, but happily (so far, at least) this hasn’t been the case. … Continued
