Although I enjoy taking a wide range of photographs, my favorite areas tend to be at about the same elevation that aspen trees grow (7,000 to 11,000 feet).

Running water is another component of the area that I love to photograph and often times to me, the difference between a photograph that I love and one that I think is simply a good shot, is water in some form.

There is another component though that causes me to love an area and really love to photograph it, and that is something a bit more intangible.  It is mossy, primal, dappled setting that causes you to look for fairies, caterpillars and fauns. It is a look and feel I usually describe as "hobbity".

Perhaps I never outgrew fairy tales :D

A Note From the Road: In the Garden - Dahlia in the Rain - Bella Vista, Arkansas

Dear Henry,
It has been raining buckets here today, but for a brief moment it stopped and I was able to run outside to take pictures of the raindrops.
I love how the dahlia turned out, I think I am going to make an art print out of it.

A Note From the Road: Road Trip Arkansas - Is That A Ghost? - HWY 549 - Bella Vista, Arkansas

Eerie and unexpected.
This was a little creepy Mom - 
I was wandering through the forest, getting pictures of leaves, moss, and squirrels etc and when I started processing this image I noticed the shadow.
I *think* (hope) it is simply motion blur from the wind, otherwise, Whispy and I were nose to nose.
I suppose it is almost Halloween.

A Note from the Road: Road Trip Nevada - Naked Strip - Las Vegas Blvd - Las Vegas NV

Look, Mom! No cars!

Some months ago I had made plans to run the Las Vegas Rock and Roll half marathon just to get this picture Mom.
Due to some unforeseen training issues (otherwise known as not training enough) I had to pass on running it.  We had thought to cancel the trip, but after #VegasStrong we made sure we came.
I was able to get the picture I wanted and I saw the race from the sidelines.
Next year!
