As I upload this, it is December 27 2012 in Boston and a few hours from now the last full moon of the year will rise. But it’s going to be raining and snowing in New England and we won’t be able to see the Full Cold Moon. So instead, I look back over this past year to remember May 5th, a crystal clear night in the Great Basin desert, perfect for rising of the Super Moon.

During an unexpected chance to experience Africa, a seed was planted. Nurtured by subsequent forays into wild places, this photographer was born.

Jacques Cousteau said “People protect what they love.” And we’ve all heard that “A picture is worth a thousand words.” So, enough with this. My photography says the rest. Thanks for listening.

  • Thank you Kent! With it cold and wet out there now, what better way to warm up than with a cozy stroll through this past year’s wonderful memories from the Desert West… Glad to have you join me then and now. ;-)
