I consider myself a photo enthusiast, with a focus on nature. I have lived in the southern Minnesota area for over twenty years but never discovered all the beautiful parks, trails and countryside until I got my camera. Through the power of my camera, I have changed how I view the wonders of nature that are all around us. Some of my favorite shots were taken in my own backyard. I hope that you will walk with me through the photos on my website and find the beauty that is so close, yet hidden from plain view.
