Light and Shadow...

Water continues to flow regardless of the rigid terrain it encounters. It assumes many forms yet continues to mesmerize us by it's simplicity. - Kelly Shipp

Nature's Fireworks...

Sunlight and infrared light illuminate this tree as if Mother Nature were giving us our own fireworks show. It is up to us to see them and appreciate them.

Trees of Roses...

There was something about the opening through these trees that interested me. It's as if a path existed, but it's up to me to determine where it leads. That's what excites me about exploration - you never know what you may see and experience.

The Golden Hour...

For some, the golden hour refers to the magical time that usually occurs an hour around sunset and sunrise. For others, it may simply be that special moment when time seems to stand still and your eyes and ears are filled with the glorious sights and sounds of nature.
