Oh Deer

White-Tailed Deer In A Montana Cherry Orchard

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could go no further than just a few steps outside your front door to see beautiful creatures such as these white-tailed deer? Well maybe not, if you’re a gardener. As a photographer though, I was happy to see these young bucks and does deer roaming nearby on a beautiful autumn day in Montana, just off the shore of Flathead Lake where I was visiting family.

Normal Day

“Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.

Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart.

Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so.

One day I shall dig my nails into the earth,

or bury my face in the pillow,

or stretch myself taut,

or raise my hands to the sky and want,

more than all the world,

your return.”

― Mary Jean Irion

 

Let The Heavens Declare!

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
~Psalms 19:1

When the world feels upside down, I like to look up. The sky is an ever changing canvas, from night to day, from season to season. A multi-colored canvas painted with dramatic compositions and vistas as a constant reminder of the glory of God, the creator.

It’s A Dog’s Life

 

DOGS — Big one, little ones, pure bred, mixed breed, fat, skinny, fluffy, fast or slow. I haven’t met one I didn’t like yet. I have two of my own — a red heeler mix cattle dog and a mini-schnauzer. They make quite the pair. Not a day in my life goes by that they don’t brighten it up in one way or another. If you are a dog lover, I know that you know exactly what I mean by that.

Dogs are one of my favorite subjects to photograph. To learn more about my “petography” sessions, contact me with the form below for more information. Let’s take a walk in the park (or your back yard) and create some CRAZY BEAUTIFUL images of you and your BEST FRIEND for memories you will treasure for many years.

Here are some samples of my work for you to browse and enjoy.

Spring Showers – Curtains!

Spring! It’s just over the horizon.

And with it comes red robins, fresh air, colorful new flowers, beautiful skies, honey bees buzzing, wind and rain.

They are made from 100 percent polyester fabric, and they include twelve holes at the top of the curtain for simple hanging from your own shower curtain rings. The total dimensions each are 71″ wide x 74″ tall.

Honeybee And Flowers

Honeybee And Flowers in February?

Thinking about honeybees and flowers in February.It’s wet, gray and gloomy this week in February. Never the less though, I’m thinking of summer and the return of the delicate flowers and busy honeybees.

I’ve been working on my fine art galleries, and this is one of my newest creations. I photographed this beautiful penstemon (also known as beardtongue) flower in the all-volunteer Master Gardener’s demonstration garden early last summer. The garden is located in Kennewick, WA.

I’ve treated the image with a bold brush stroke texture to enhance the vibrant color and details of the original photo.

This pretty little honeybee is available as a fine art print in my Etsy shop, and you can get there by simply clicking on the image.
