Nature Galleries

My passion is in capturing beautiful places, and some of the most spectacular places are those that are wild and pristine, with the closest road being a day’s hike or more away. The closest wilderness to home is the San Bernardino National Forest, and the Sierra Nevada range begins not too far away and stretches its spine along the length of the state. Other wild places, from nearby beaches to remote mountaintops, inspire me to appreciate the natural landscape of our planet. I have organized the subject into separate categories based on general location.
