In April of 2012, I visited GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAINS NATIONAL PARK. As a participant in a workshop with Will Clay, I enjoyed shooting water and mountain scenery. My images include ridge upon ridge of forest, stream, waterfall, sunrise and magestic sunsets.
In June of 2011, I visited YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK as a participant in The Grandeur of Yosemite Photorahy Workshop with John Mariana. it was there that I learned much of what inspires my work today.
In August of 1997, At the invitation from my cousin Dr. Jeanne Shaw (OBM), I hiked Rim to Rim with a group of amazing friends. Shooting film, I captured the powerful and inspiring landscape of GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK. It overwhelmed my senses through its immense size as it challenged my physical body and lifted my spirit.
