Water’s Draw

20Jun17

It was always my dream to live on a mountain lake but as it turns out I am perfectly happy to have some nearby. “I’d rather live on a mountain lake than along the ocean,” I’d say. For me lakes are more relaxing than the sometimes harsh and exposed conditions of the seashore. I do […]


After a long and snowy winter I went searching for some spring green and below is some of what I found. There’s a short window when the foliage and grasses have that beautiful and bright, yellow-green color and I wanted to capture it. This year, late snow left a nice fresh coat of white on […]
