This Gallery encompasses my favorite nature photographs from years of exploration. I believe in a loving Heavenly Father who has created the Earth we call home. That belief, combined with my training as an artist, has a profound effect on the way I view the world. I think Elizabeth Barret Browning put it best when she said, “Earth's crammed with heaven, and every common bush afire with God, but only he who sees takes off his shoes.” When I photograph the world I remember this quote. Although I may fall short of capturing the majesty of some of the moments I have seen, my hope is that the viewer will take the time to see the world I see. It is an earth crammed with heaven, full of life afire with God, where I often find myself gratefully taking off my shoes.
All of the images have been taken with a digital camera. The lighting is natural, with the exception of the "Ancient Tree and Stars, Cainville Mesa, Utah." A headlamp was used to light the tree. Adjustments in Photoshop were minimal and limited to taking raw photos and making them reflect the colors and contrast of the original moment they represent.
