It’s all about capturing a moment in time. About discovering scenes that, when shared, generate interest and appeal.
I am absorbed in the passion for photography and derive great pleasure in being a part of this superb artistic community.

John Butler is a resident of Northern California. A builder, by trade – but spiritually, a naturalist and photographer.

    Simply amazing John, beautiful!!!

  • Thank You Kathie. It looks so much like a relief map that it could fool me if I didn’t already know it was a rock.
