Reeds in a Mountain Stream
In Mt Robson NP of British Columbia, following a
heavy snow fall in summer, frost tipped grasses
appear magically growing amid and under water and
The Sound of the Pond in Spring
The overwhelming sound of pond and tree frogs on the
prowl in spring can be deafening. Sound converted to shape
and color is how I perceive it.
Fire on the Ridge (triptych)
I have always wanted to let go with a wild sky
that pulled the mountains along with it. An
expedition to the Cordillera Blanca in 1984,
provided the inspiration to attempt the
melding transformation of the earth to sky.
Dusk on Silver Lake
In the fall days around Eagle River Wisconsin, the setting haze
around Silver Lake beckons memories of swirling stars and the
infinity of beauty.
In the fen swamps surrounding Muskego Lake near my
backyard, warm nights in June bring out swarms of fireflies
that light up the sky with bursts of fireworks that stun the
Grand Canyon Sunset
There is never a better time to experience a sunset within
the Grand Canyon than during midwinter when the sun
throws a cast of light that can be found nowhere else.
16031 - Quibrata Kilkijuanca - Cordiella Blanca, Peru
Every so often, my mind travels back to Peru during my
first major mountain expedition with the Iowa Mountaineers.
These mountain rocks may not contain mineral wealth, but
pack a palette of color that can be found nowhere else.
Frozen in Grand Canyon Time
The Grand Canyon may contain rocks layered as a textbook
in geological time, but the temperate weather there can
freeze any activity for the unprepared.
Over Redfish Lake near Stanley Idaho
in the Sawtooth Mountains, a setting
sun reminds one of the richness of
color and the infinty of beauty beyond.
Phantom Ranch in December
At the bottom of the Bright Angel's trail at the Colorado
River, a view of a deserted camp area in mid-winter where
the temperatures are nearly spring while at the rim of the
canyon nearly two feet of snow has fallen.
Blustering Sunset Over Red Lodge
Over a red fog in the valley, the red color shift in the sky
takes me to a time where fires raged in the Beartooth
Wilderness and seemed to set the sky on fire.
Valley of Clouds
In the morning after a sobbing rain, thick clouds settle in
obscuring the landscape below the Mission Mountains in
The Burn at Green Lake
In this flight of fancy, the setting sun over the Flambeau
Flowage in Wisconsin casts a greenscape that flames the
sky with yellow tinges.
The Long Canyon Burn
In a clouded memory of the Wind River Titcomb
Basin, a vision arises that is sort of scary where
the sun bathes the nearby peaks with dying
embers. Image is inspired in Idaho’s Panhandle
National Forest - USFS.
Sunset with a Lime Twist
In the tropics of the Pacific Mexican view, a
sunset can very seldomly be blessed with that
splashy flash of imaginary green at sunset - here
imagined in Bandaras Bay and Puerto Vallarta.
