"Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still." --Dorothea Lange-- 1895-1965 A.D.

Please subscribe and pass on my photos...not to please my own vanity, but, rather so others can see the world around them the way I see it! Hopefully I inspire someone to photograph the world the way they see it!

Monument Valley.  Nothing can explain the size of these stone formations.  I know they look small, but, they are about 50 miles away from where I took this photo!

Monument Valley.  Look carefully, near the base of this stone formation are a collection of two story homes.  This should give you perspective as to how tall this stone formation is.

The sun was beginning to set over the canyon.  I had planned on focusing on the ridge in the distance but purely by accident my camera’s iris focused on the bush in front.  In the end, I actually liked the outcome.

This photo helps to illustrate the various rocks that make up the Grand Canyon.  It is not made of one type of rock but a whole slew of rocks that vary in colors as you go deeper into the canyon.

The colors of the Grand Canyon are a treat to watch and to photograph.  So many clearly defined colors make for an amazing backdrop to an already intense experience.
