I have been blessed to grow up in the Western United States, and have visited many of the national and state parks in the west. Since retirement, I am pursuing landscape photography. I have a passion to photograph all around my current state of Arizona and often do so from horseback. I have been recently taking some courses to advance my knowledge of photography and hope to increase my ability, and add to my initial equipment purchases. My photographic collection still inspires and motivates me to keep my camera equipment close at hand.
