Capturing Earth's Beauty through Nature Photography

Have fun picking up a number of basic digital photography tips to enhance your nature photography with just a few lenses, filters, and a tripod. I simplify for the beginning photographer how to work with the aperture and speed to make the most of lighting and depth for scenery, animals, butterflies and flowers.

I have a special section describing how to create a backyard studio with a variety of feeders and plants to attract birds and butterflies.

Be better prepared in the wilderness by learning how to react when encountering wildlife and read how I walked away unharmed after an encounter with two cougars.

Explore with me numerous hiking trails around Colorado's breathtaking terrain through hundreds of photos and helpful pointers. Learn how to approach the mighty 'fourteeners' (mountains over 14,000 ft.) and perhaps have your own spiritual experience in God's vast creation.

I hope my gallery can provide you with some inspiration along your creative journey.
