There are millions of photos on the internet similar to ours. What makes ours different are the stories which accompanying them. They are unique because we go places less visited. They are every bit as interesting; they are just not visited as much. Join us on our journeys. If you see something a friend may enjoy, send them a link.

Scenic; Over the years I have visited most of the western states. These images capture a few of the many beautiful mountains, rivers, lakes, sloughs and deserts. This particular set was obtained on a 2011 solo motor cycle trip. It covered 3,300 miles through eight states. The adventure lasted twenty-one days. It is one I strongly recommend. For more on this trip and others go to Scenic in our Gallery.
Wildlife Action; My favorite subjects are the Great Blue Heron and the Great White Egret. We have an abundance in the delta wetlands. In order to get these images I must spend many hours walking the levy roads and boating the waterways. I move slow and easy to get as close as possible. If the subject remains still and the light is coming from the right direction I may get the shot.

Join us as we travel some of the highway, byways and waterways of our wonderful country. We will take you down paths less traveled. We do visit popular attractions and landmarks however; our specialty is nature at its best. You won’t need a hat and coat to follow along. Turn on the computer and jump aboard.
Wildlife stills; I obtain these stills by getting as close as possible. While viewing the images notice the detail. My attention is drawn to the subject’s eye. The closer I get, the more clarity and sharpness. I enjoy the different configurations and expressions. I am often drawn to the surroundings of my subjects. Background plays an important part.
