Summer Lake, United States

My nature photography studio is located in Summer Lake, Oregon. This is a remote valley east of the Oregon Cascades with deserts, lakes and marshes. My photography focuses on creating artistic images of the wildlife and natural beauty of this area. I also look for old buildings, living history, and other older artifacts to render in an artistic fashion.

However the harsh Harney County mid-day sun and a cloud of dust washed out the colors. Once the hawk settled on its prey…

Thoughts on the Photograph titled "Cedar Waxwing: Icarus I Ain't"

Amazing birds these Waxwings. En masse a flock will attack a berry bush on a cold morning as though they were fruit eaters and then, as the temperature rises, hang out at the top of an Aspen hawking for gnats with all the agility of a Western Flycatcher. These omnivores of a sort (if bugs are a kind of meat) are so cooperative and inventive that they’ve been known to pass berry after berry down t…

Fort Rock Falcons

The cliffs, canyons, and dramatic out-croppings of the Great American Basin arouse in us feelings about our place in antiquity and the greater scheme of things.

However, these structures—works forever in progress—are the handiwork of primordial forces which continue …
