Long time no blog…

Wow, I had no idea it has been so long since I last made a blog post. It’s as if all of 2021 and 2022 didn’t even exist. I almost wish, since these have been especially difficult years for me. Amongst all of my ongoing medical issues, I have found some peace and tranquility in a few photo shoots though. I’ll just post a few favorites here from 2021 and hope to catch up again next month with a 2022 review.

The following images were taken on a cross country road trip in October 2021, which included photo stops in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and West Virginia for the most part. A bucket list trip I took with my sister.

I hope you enjoy the images!

2020 in retrospect

2020 comes to a welcome end tomorrow, and I’ve been thinking about this last year and all it has been. While it had so many challenges and disappointments, looking through my images from the year, I was pleasantly surprised at all the good memories I had and the images I was able to create. I’m not going to go into detail about each image but I had to narrow this down from about 50 favorites, which included wildlife, nature and even some people. But, staying true to my passion, I’ve settled on 20 landscapes for my tribute to the year. Watch for another post with some other subjects.

Like everyone else, I am happy to be leaving 2020 behind and looking forward to 2021 with hope for brighter days ahead.

I’m headed back to Driggs this week to teach my first photo workshop of 2016. I’m excited and just a bit nervous, but really looking forward to it.  In the mean time, the two autumn workshops are filling. If you’re interested in either of these, don’t delay in securing your spot with a small deposit. Read all the details here.

Winter Roundup

I must say it was sooo nice to get that one good snowfall back in December. I didn’t get to make an extended trip during the peak of it, but I did some local shooting. Here’s some highlights.

Idaho, North, Twin Lakes. A red barn in a snow covered field on a December morning.

Idaho, North, Kootenai County, Coeur d’Alene. A fresh skiff of snow on the north shore of Lake Coeur d’Alene on a December morning.

In January, I took a day trip to Bonner County during a nice cold snap.

Idaho, North, Sandpoint. Sunrise over Lake Pend Oreille and the Cabinet Mountains of North Idaho in winter.

An evening drive through the Chain Lakes to Harrison netted these:

In mid February I was finally able to make a trip south. I had business in Boise and Twin Falls, so only had one good evening of photography and a few travel stops.

Idaho, Southwest, Boise. Boise National Forest. A morning view over the Boise Ridge from the Bogus Basin Road in late winter.

Idaho, South Central, Twin Falls. The Snake River Canyon from the north rim in evening with Shoshone Falls inthe distance in winter.

Idaho, South Central, Arco. A line of trees in the Big Lost River Valley between Arco and Mackay in winter.

Maybe I’ll be wrong, but I think that’s about it for winter around here. On to spring. 🙂
