Trees Go WanderingI have been inspired by many people but John Muir I find particularly interesting, his approach to life, his search for knowledge and never ending need to explore and experience. I particularly like a quote of his. John Muir, "It has been said that trees are imperfect men, and seem to bemoan their imprisonment rooted in the ground. But they never seem so to me. I never saw a discontented tree. They grip the ground as though they liked it, and though fast rooted they travel about as far as we do. They go wandering forth in all directions with every wind, going and coming like ourselves, traveling with us around the sun two million miles a day, and through space heaven knows how fast and far!"

Dream, Discover, Explore.
My goal is to share my experiences and joy of life, to learn and be inspired by people like yourself and to help encourage others to live their dreams, so that they can inspire all of us to be better members and stewards of this world.
I am driven by a love of the outdoors and experiencing life, I look forward to sharing my love of life, photography, astronomy and the outdoors with my five grand children.
I have many interests, photography, astronomy, birding, hiking, camping, bicycling and much more. Come and join me and we can inspire each other.
Thoughts On Photography
Photography is more than a collection of pretty images to me. Each captured image represents a moment, preserving the present and showing respect to the past. In photography, metal no longer rusts, and people never age. My hope is to save a few of these special moments, to pass on to others.
I was always told when photographing people, that the camera looks both ways, that the photographers emotions, personality, facial expressions are reflected back to the camera from the subject. I believe that this is also the case in nature and landscape photography, even street photography, our emotions, our view of life and how we see the world are also captured in the images we record
