Sandhill Cranes of the Bosque #3

Sandhill Cranes of the Bosque #3

Mexican Canyon Trestle Cloudcroft, New Mexico

Ever since I was a small child (age 3 or 4) trains have fascinated me. Even before I knew my paternal grandfather worked on the Rock Island Railroad I was playing with electric trains, riding in the real thing, photographing them and exploring empty rail cars.

Nesting

Nesting

Bird on a Wire (Bird on a Wire Series I)

This was the first in my Bird on a Wire series, using a photo captured on a photo scavenger hunt assignment. I sat for a good half hour just listening to this beautiful bird sing, and sing, and sing. I just love how she sat under the transformer to shade herself from the evening sun.

A Light in the Attic

Older architecture has such great personality. There are stories to be told in those old timbers. One of my favorite things to do in my art is to create night images from those taken in broad daylight. The details are crisp and allow for play with the lights and shadows to create a totally different...
