  • Seljandsfoss

    Seljalandsfoss, Iceland. This waterfall is something beautiful to behold. The sound of the water falling from behind the waterfall was like thunder. The mist was everywhere - I was soaked after making the photo. But it was truly a wonderful experience that I am so grateful for. Original Dimensions 16 x 24

  • Teton Grizzly

    I waited patiently for this grizzly to wake up from his afternoon nap. It was definitely worth it! After his nap he cooled off in a small stream close by and then came up to enjoy the wildflowers nearby. A metal print would really highlight the textures and water in the bear. Original Dimensions 16 x 14

  • Tender Moment

    An adult mountain goat checks on this youngster. Original Dimension: 16 x 24

  • Grizzly Bear in a Sea of Wildflowers

    I waited 3 hours for this male grizzly bear to wake up from an afternoon nap. This large bear grazed and walked through a vast meadow of wildflowers in the early evening light. He was amazing to watch, and I'm so glad to share him with you. Original Dimensions 16 x 24

  • Rocky Mountain Milky Way

    Rock Cut along Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park makes a beautiful foreground for the Milky Way. This night was very cloudy and foggy, and was certainly a test of patience and perseverance. There was a break in the clouds and fog for a very short while and this beautiful scene appeared before me. Original Dimensions: 16 x 24

  • Standing Tall

    Surviving, and standing tall in the most challenging of times. Original Size: 12 x 18

  • Reflections

    It's time to settle in for the night. All is quiet. All is calm. Original Dimensions: 16 x 24

  • Aurora Night Sky

    There is nothing quite like the Aurora Borealis. It is simply amazing to watch the ribbons of light as they gracefully dance across the sky. The snow covered mountain is a different view of Vestrahorn Mountain. It is one of the many photogenic destinations on the south eastern coast of Iceland. Original Dimensions: 16 x 24

  • Day's Blessings

    Sunset...The end of a day. It is a time to reflect upon the day's blessings. It is a time to give thanks, and a time for gratitude.. Original Dimension: 2 x 1

  • Peaceful Pasque

    It's the end of the day. All is quiet, all is at peace.

  • Mother To Be

    This Mourning Dove has selected such a beautiful location to nest. She is surrounded by pink roses. Each bud slowly opens and blossoms to welcome spring.

  • Watchful

    Ever watchful, this Great Horned Owl is constantly aware of his surroundings. Original Dimensions: 16 x 20

  • Iceland Sunrise

    The light on this morning was so beautiful. The pink was so vibrant; it felt like you could reach out and touch it. Dimensions: 2 x 1

  • Northern Light Show

    Vestrahorn lights up under the Northern Lights as they dance across the Icelandic sky. This is an absolutely magical experience! Vestrahorn is on the south west coast of Iceland. This mountain cascades into the North Atlantic Ocean. At high tide the ocean's waters surround the southern side of this mountain range. Add dancing Northern Lights to this scene and you've got a recipe for absolute beauty.

  • Heartfelt

    There is nothing like a mother's garden. Every plant is individually cared for and nurtured to ensure it grows and flourishes in it's environment. Each flower is treated with love and tenderness, with kindness and compassion. Thank You mom for your love, your kindness, and allowing me to grow and to blossom.

  • Winter Wear

    The American Bison are such a majestic animal, but even more spectacular when in full coat during the winter. Original Dimensions: 16 x 24

  • Three Sisters Sunset

    One of the best pieces of advice I got for sunrise/sunset photos is to constantly look around. We get so fixated on the sunset itself, that sometimes we forget to see the beauty behind us. For me, this is also a great life lesson - Always be sure to look around and absorb all of creation's beauty. Taken at sunset looking east, this is the Three Sisters rock formation at Goblin Valley State Park with Molly's Castle in the distance.

  • Cassidy Arch at Sunset

    Capitol Reef National Park in Utah is a magical place. Sunset brings out the vibrant colors in the rock. The silence of the vast open space calms the senses. All is at peace. Original Dimension: 16 x 24

  • The Sentinel

    Drink in the rich colors and textures of this scene. Feel the cool moist air against your skin. Listen as the birds awake and welcome a new day. All of this and more surrounds a lone bull Bison as he watches over his territory. Original Dimensions: 16 x 24

  • Palmer Lake Star

    The Palmer Lake Star has been part of the town's history since 1935. The star's story goes back to the depression era. It was built to "inspire hope and prosperity" to weary travelers. Today I think it still achieves this lofty goal. Original Dimensions: 8 x 16

  • Solitary Sunset

    Sunsets in the desert can be extraordinarily colorful. This is especially true for White Sands National Monument in New Mexico. I was able to walk around the white dunes all afternoon, enjoying the peaceful winter afternoon. All was quiet and still. My heart sang with joy to see the wonder of nature's colorful sunset. Original Dimensions: 16 x 20

    Cosmos Flowers are often called Love Flowers, but from the word 'Cosmos', as you would expect, they mean order, harmony and beauty in the Universe. Original Dimensions: 16 x 24

    The small town of Fruita sits within Capitol Reef National Park. The historic town is filled with many fruit orchards. This is the Apricot Orchard, looking north towards the beautiful backdrop of rock and approaching storm at sunset. Original Dimensions: 16 x 24

  • La Sal Sunset

    Taken from The Summit Post: "The La Sal Mountains are Utah's second highest mountain range, and form the famous background behind Moab and background scenes such as Fisher Towers, Canyonlands National Park, and Arches National Park. The La Sal means "The Salt" in Spanish and the mountains were named by the Dominguez/Escalante Expedition in 1776. There are two stories about the naming of the La Sals. The first is that they were named because the soils and valleys surrounding the mountains contain salt. The second is that since the Dominguez/Escalante party passed through the area in August, they just couldn't believe the mountains were covered with snow, so they assumed they were covered with salt as are some of the surrounding valleys. Since summer temperatures often soar to 110F or higher in the valleys, the story isn't as far-fetched as it may seem." Original Dimensions: 10 x 16 (Found in Other Sizes)

    The foggy afternoon atmosphere provides a wonderful setting for these bald eagles as they perch on this branch, waiting patiently for the next meal. Original Dimensions: 8x8 (Square)

    Canadian fires hung over the great midwest skies for weeks during the summer of 2015. The particles from the fire contributed to already amazing South Dakota sunsets. This sunset photo was taken from the top of Nicollet Tower, looking northwest towards the Coteau des Prairies. The brilliant sunset colors are a contrast to the dark forest green and the vibrant green fields. Original Size: 15 x 30
