Continuing with my revisit to Elkmont in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park… As of this spring, the park will be starting some of the plans to restore and remove buildings from the Elkmont section of the park. I believe many of the buildings from the images in this past entry are slated for demolition, … More Elkmont, Revisited, Vol 2
In Fall 2014 I wrote about the “abandoned” town of Elkmont in the Great Smokey Mountains National Park and shared some of my photographs from the area. In the next three blogs I’ll share more work…with a decidedly moodier feel to them. Taken in winter, processed with minimal color and lots of gloomy, rainy day … More Elkmont, Revisited, Vol 1

The hardiness and perseverance of the people who … More Historic Cabins

Travels like the one planned for the Spring are never just about the destinations. The right route will make a full day of driving just as incredible as a day at a destination spot. There was one particular day last year that I felt was fairly well captured in photographs. The day started off in … More On A Traveling Day
Selection of photographs from my most recent fall trip to the Tetons in Wyoming.
The Badlands of South Dakota is one of the few places I’ve visited that the light allows one to photograph all day. Sometimes, the the midday light will be just as harsh and bright as any other place, but if one were to give it a few minutes, the weather would shift and bring in … More A Meeting in the Badlands.
