Out of this World
The Burren located in Southwest Ireland in County Clare, is a geological and botanical gem to visit. It looks like the surface of the moon. I was fascinated with the landscapes, it look like you landed on an another planet.
Wet and Wild Ireland Hill Walking
Hill walking in Ireland can be very, very wet walking.

The Burren is Alive
The Burren is very desolate but there are also amazing pockets of life growing all through it. I chose to use the combined B&W and color composite technique to visually accent this story.
This lovely wildflower was found during a Spring hike to Mt Townsend on the Olympic Peninsula. What a wonderful "little beauty" this flower is!!!
Rainier's Burroughs Mountain Views
The hike to 3rd Burroughs’ mountain located on the East side of Rainier is a very unique hike as the terrain is quite different.
Sing Through Me
The backlighting of these beautiful Balsamroots makes them look like they are "singing out a song" for some reason to me.
Looking Up From The Past
Arriving by ferry to the Blasket Island of Ireland, I was very excited to see the overcast skies beginning to clear and make this great sky background to these old ruins.
Lupine's early morning dew
Love how Lupine catch water and felt this post processing technique accented this well.
Went off trail this fall hike to Lake Valhalla and found this interesting landscape
The flowers of Paradise in full bloom are indeed truly breathtaking.
Out Standing In The Field
Walking in the fall across Spain after the harvest of the fields left some interesting landscapes. This a panoramic image 4.1 to 1 ratio.
Such a lovely and bold flower the Balsamroot!
The Balsamroot Speaks
I felt like this little fellow was speaking to the valley below. Grace and peace!

Early morning on the sublime Meseta of Spain. This panoramic image is a 2.7 to 1 ratio.
Cosmos, Cosmos, Cosmos
The Beauty Hidden Within
Awe the raw and simple beauty within the Avalanche Lilly!
Baby Toe Head
Western Anemone gone to seed is sometimes nicknamed "Baby Toe Head"
Sunrise "Hippy Heads"
The Western Anemone has some fun nicknames. I love the name "Hippy Heads" for the seed stage like this wonderful display that was at Sunrise on Mt Rainier.
Endless Fields and Sky
We climbed a short hill and suddenly came up on this flat, flat endless landscape. It worked best I felt as a Black and White image to bring out the starkness and endless nature of the landscape. This pano image is 2.4 to 1.
Gothic Basin trail is one very tough and rugged trail but worth it when you get panoramic vistas like this that remind one of the Enchantments. This pano image is 2.5 to 1.
