Lithia Park

10-20-19 Lithia Park is in Ashland, Oregon and very well known for its beauty (at least in the area).  It is a relatively large park for a non-metropolitan community and is always well maintained.  One of the things it is especially known for is its fall colors. Every year during the fall, numerous photographers flock…

Merchant Marine

9-16-19 I have been wanting to return to the Bay Area and do some more night photography there.  The night lights, the bay, skylines, etc are all very enticing.  It is a several hour drive from my place and hard for me to plan just where to go and get in as much as possible…

Bald Eagle

In case you don’t know me, or don’t know me well enough – I really like Bald Eagles.  I believe they are big, majestic, beautiful birds and if you haven’t seen one in person, you are missing out.  So naturally, I’ve always wanted to photograph one.  I’ve seen a few in the area where I…
