Nicely done, 2012!


4th of July Fireworks at Tempe Town Lake

2012 was a banner year. I travelled and photographed more than ever before, and was the year I felt like I turned the corner on pursuing my passion for photography. More of my free-time was devoted to all things photographic. I studying other photographers work, blogs and social media posts. I worked on my technique, making fewer mistakes in the field. I shot more new locations and drove more miles that ever before. I hiked in new canyons and found scenic overlooks not on the map. And I had a great summer road trip that covered four states in five days. I can't wait to see what happens in 2013...

Here's a few from 2012

"Apocalypse Not..." The Mayan Apocalypse was a no-show.

It was a terrific year with a flourish at the end. I had fun chasing the Fall colors this year and discovered many new places I'll have to re-visit soon. I'm excited about the new year and can't wait to find new places to explore.

Oh, by the way... unsigned Prints are only $50. 

(That's dirt cheap for such a large print (up to 44" wide.)

See my newly redesigned website for information on ordering enlargements.

Have a fantastic 2013!
