    Most of my photography is meant to document Nature as I see and experience it. So much of the land and wilderness has already been lost, and even more is endangered by those who wish to feed their addiction to greed, power and control.

    My hope is to inspire people to protect what is left, and to go out and experience for themselves.

    Other creative pursuits include abstract expressionist painting, playing classical and improvisational piano, kayaking, and cooking.

    Lovely captures, Jerry! Spring comes much more slowly to the high country, although the currant bushes are now in bloom, as well as the forsythias and a few apple trees.
  3. Fantastic camera, and great lenses as well. I have two of them. Most of the time I use the 18-55 and 90mm.
  4. Most of the green in the landscapes is from conifers. The deciduous trees and shrubs have not yet begun leafing out. But we had more snow and other moisture this winter than in the past 10 years! However, with the intense sunlight at 7000 feet of elevation it disappears fairly quickly. That landscape was taken on equinox day, a few hours before the change of seasons. Here's another.
  5. Good light, but sunshine is not necessary. These were taken yesterday with overcast skies.
  6. After more than two-and-a-half months, we hiked off trail up to the rock cliffs in the Nature Preserve. It was a wondrous experience to be amongst the ancient trees, amazing rock formations, lichens, cacti, shrubs, and incredible vistas. We wound up taking a more strenuous and exhausting route, being on the lookout for photographic opportunities, and the stillness, solitude, and magnificence of Nature was deeply moving.
