Just Added!

Recent Work Galleries now updated (as of this week in July 2016). This section now contains Galleries for Texas Hill Country wildflowers and South Texas birds 2015. Images have been added to two Close to Home (Ontario) Galleries for 2014-2015. Travel west and north to the NWT and Nunavut in both 2014 and 2015 requires four Recent Work Galleries. And lastly I have included images from a trip to Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota last summer to photograph animal babies as well as some adults and scenes

Some Changes to note:

As of July 2015 I have moved images from older Recent Work Galleries to their appropriate subject galleries. These galleries continue to grow so you may wish to use the Search feature to find a targeted group of images, if you are looking for something specific.

Coming soon

Cuba- Central Havana street photography (December 2015), local winter, spring and summer imagery as well as an extensive tour to the US Red Rock Country in the winter of 2016. These images are in the queue for editing now.
