I emphasize that the colors of this sunrise are all natural — no filters, manipulations, enhancement AT ALL. This is nature at its best. This is the original photo used to create “LSD Sunrise.”

My passion for photography began as a child — even telling my parents what pictures they should take! Photography is a “time machine” which transports us back to different eras and places worldwide. It stops time and captures life in each century in a timeless fashion. From the beauty of the human face and body to the rugged terrain, vast oceanscapes, breathtaking sunsets, amazing wildlife, and fascinating cultures, photography captures it all.
