It’s more of a lake than a pond and as I walk along the shoreline I gaze upon the numerous communities of broad, green leaves and striking flowers, floating upon a liquid landscape. The air is alive with sounds of frogs, crickets and water birds.
This is a special place, where the miracles of nature prevail.

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.

  • Thank You Kala – I enjoy getting a bit more introspective with some of my photo descriptions. Nature, in all of its glory inspires me on a regular basis. And – As always, I sincerely appreciate all of your comments and support. Thanks, John B
