Photography for me is all about capturing the light...whether it is a rushing mountain stream, a cascading waterfalls, or sunrise on a deserted beach. Light transforms an ordinary scene into something special. It is usually a fleeting moment and often involves just being in the right place at the right time.

For me, photography is a form of meditation. It forces me to be aware of my surroundings--to stop and notice all the small details. When I look at one of my photographs and it not only takes me back to that time and place, but it also brings back the emotion that I originally felt, then I have a good photo.
