Drill in Tough-Nut Mine Tombstone AZ 1880's by 


Up near the back in an orange light is the old drill they used in the 1880’s . They had to lean on the end of the drill and turn the handle. You can see the various minerals in the ore. This is located in an ancient volcanic area.

I became interested in photography at an early age, focusing mostly on Macro images. Later, I expanded to a wider range of subjects after discovering the wonderful photographers on Redbubble.

I have been inspired by many excellent photographers here on Redbubble, and have found myself broadening my range in subjects. I do love Macro work, for it brings the small delicate details out in an image. Nature has become even more interesting when viewing it up close.
