My inspiration is the work of Eliot Porter, who pioneered color landscape photography and advocated for truthful recording of nature, especially his Sierra Club books, 'In Wildness is the Preservation of the World' and 'The Place No One Knew, Glen Canyon on the Colorado River'. His intimate views make you feel as if you are with him, experiencing a place.

In Oregon, I have hiked for many years into Opal Creek and love to photograph the interplay of light and water in the stream. The images seen here are from that series.

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates. http://buywatchestop.com

Mike, your photos are exquisite; a pleasure to look at; and so precise. I thought you were a photographer but from your note on the listserv maybe you haven't been "out" for long. Anyway, the photos have the look of a professional. Good luck in your new career. Dave
