Welcome to my ever-expanding collection of landscape, wild-life, and other artistic images. Inspired by the rugged, windswept coastlines and the majestic redwood forests of the northcoast of California, I have been drawn to landscape photography, which allows me to explore the rich colors and forms of nature and attempt to draw from the particular scene the essential mystery and transcendent beauty that may exist in its outward lineaments. The senses are poets, as the philosopher George Santayana averred, and in dealing with color, shape, form, texture we transform these symbols from practical signs of material objects to essences that can be contemplated for their own sakes, free from the animal cares embedded in worldly things.

I am also drawn to wildlife photography, and here my goal is, beyond portraying the magnificence and stoicism of these odd creatures, to also bring out the hidden desires, passions, and sentiments that control and inspire these animals in much the same way that we ourselves may be driven this way and that. The substratum of will that underlies all animate things may take upon a different aspect in varying sentient beings, but it is, at bottom, the same animating force, wild and irrational.
