Waking each morning with childlike wonder:  what mystery will unfold today?



Wild Horses


With the winter ski season over, I've shifted taking photos to wild horses and their colts in springtime.  Click on Wild Horses for photos from Murderers Creek, Palamino Butte & South Steens Mtn.





This summer I bought a new full frame dslr camera (Pentax K1, for the camera folks).

I've been learning to use it, mainly for landscapes, snow, night and star shots.


I hear a calling to bring photos back from some of the amazing places and various adventures that are happening here.


I call this series unplugged because getting out into nature provides that for me, for us.


These photos do not fit well into the slide show format below.  They are best viewed at full screen.


With some more fine tuning, photos like these may, one day, become large size framed prints.
