My best days are always spent outdoors. This is what happens when I'm outdoors with a camera.

The summer solstice is in June, which makes June sunsets rather special. At least you have a lot more time to capture them.

The Al Sabo Preserve is a "passive recreation nature reserve," meaning that there are no amenities and that trails are minimally maintained. It's a great place to spend a summer morning. You can read more about the Al Sabo Preserve (and download a map) here.

I awoke one morning to find the most delicate, ethereal ice crystals coating the world. I rushed out, camera in hand, and managed to capture about twenty images before the sun's growing warmth turned it all into a very ordinary day.

March, 2013. I had upgraded to a fancy, not-smart phone, and was taken by the quality of the camera in it. I was also taking long walks every day. These photos were the result. If I can find the phone and charge it, there are probably even more photos like this on it.

There is no better way to spend a summer evening than staring at the night sky. Unfortunately, light pollution is making that more and more difficult. We need the dark!

These pictures are from October, 2010. The fields were abandoned by then, but I was taken by all the geometry to be found there.

These pictures are from March, 2010. Most people find cemeteries to be frightening or eerie places, but they are meant to be restful. Mystery is always associated with death, which is part of what I tried to capture in these images.

March 14 was a dreary, overcast day. I headed for the empty fields south of town, knowing that the big open sky would present a lot of exciting possibilities. I had forgotten that the railroad tracks and freshly plowed fields would add some geometric interest as well.

These images were all taken in a single June afternoon in 2009. I have been visiting this forest since I was a child; it has been too long since I have been back. I need to go again, and soon.
