One of my favorite images: In fact, it was my very favorite moment on a month long, coast-to-coast motorcycle tour – and there were LOTS of favorite moments!

Yosemite Falls

Yosemite Falls, in Yosemite National Park, is the highest measured waterfall in North America.

Craters of the Moon National Monument

The rugged emptiness and black lava fields in this area of Idaho are hard to describe: but “desolate weird” comes to mind.

Global tourists shoot this scene thousands of times daily. However, by featuring only one photographer, as opposed to a mob of them, it suggests to me a personal perspective that any “one” visitor might experience, independent of everyone else in the vicinity.

Misty Yellowstone Morning


Misty Yellowstone Morning

I had survived a torrential thunderstorm motorcycling through the Beartooth Mountains in Montana the night before and the downpour had stopped early in the morning before I geared up and headed into Yellowstone National Park, in Wyoming. The drenched earth, exceptionally clean air, mist flowing amidst the trees, passing clouds and natural grandeur coalesced into an enchanting moment.
