A lovely winter day as a snow storm has just passed and the clouds start to lift, very faintly in the distance you can start to see the mountains beyond. Pinos Altos, New Mexico, a gold rush mining town, In the mid 1800’s holds a place in our wild west history.

I grew up seeing photography as a form of fine art, with great appreciation I view the world around me and hope you will enjoy my captured vignettes and moments in time….. and thank you for taking a moment to view the world through my eyes!
