"Let there be light!"

Back light, side light, front light. Dim, bright, slanted, or flat. The shape, color, and intensity of light defines every composition. An exquisite back-lit petal of an orchid, the slanted, dramatic explosion of light at sunset on an expansive beach, the cool, dim light of an early, misty morning sunrise over a slumbering mountain range all evoke a specific mood and emotion. This illuminated moment in time is dependent on the time of day and season, as light is an energy and life force that changes and morphs continuously.

I revel in capturing just the right moment — a fleeting expression, a vivid hue, a wild spirit, or an intricate pattern in nature. Seeing the world through the lens, and the filter of my mind's eye, is a challenging and inspirational, beautiful and exhilarating process. Add electronics, pixels, software, paper, the Web, and voila! I share a vision.

Like all art, photography invites me to appreciate and participate in the beauty and wonder of life around me.
