I see poetry in the skies, in the waters and in the depths of the forest. I hear music when sitting amongst silent mountain peaks and I listen to windswept deserts. The western landscape is part of my spirit, my journey, my song. I know no joy greater than existing simply in the wilderness, breathing with the light, gathering inspiration. The wilderness has a power to change man - there is something of an essence, a mysterious force out there that works its way soul-deep. I believe in its power to heal, and that is why I share some of my experience through these photographs. My hope is that when you experience my art, you will be "there" with these very special landscapes, and perhaps you will taste some of the quiet reverie.
