I love taking pictures of the outdoors as a way to stay connected when I’m indoors all day with the 9-5 job. As I continue to expand and grow as a budding photographer, I’ll be adding pages that are linked to this one. Pages may be themed (wildlife, flowers, sunsets, insects) or dated. but new photos/pages will come hopefully at least once a month. Certain blog posts may even refer to the pages.

Sunrise and sunsets can be beautiful to watch and photograph, under the right circumstances. Sunrises and sunsets over lakes, oceans, rivers make some of the best pictures.
