My family and I were on holiday in Northumberland, England, and were went visiting some of the castles in the area. We visited Alnwick Castle. I didn’t take many shots that day, but i so want to go back and visit. As we passed through the doorway, I looked hard at this old, ancient door which has seen so much history. I really wanted to capture the textures and character of the place. I love the keyhole at the front.

Primarily a landscape photographer, my enjoyment of taking photos has developed from a young age. Originally from Texas, I now live in England and am surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery. I enjoy outdoor activities such as climbing, hiking, and camping. I am blessed with a wonderful wife and three terrific children. I am a strong Christian and I believe that my love of photography and any talent I posses in capturing images comes from God.
