Passage

This still and quiet trail scene was captured on a crisp winter morning in one of California's southern oak woodlands along state highway 101. The main focus of the photo highlights a grand stone staircase, as well as a humble footpath, that travelers are presented with on their journey to an unseen destination beyond the trees ahead. As a regular reader of fantasy fiction novels, this image was created with many of those adventures in mind.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Sojourn

A window that parallels the trail and is seldom looked through.  This scene is meant to slow down the mind and soul in an attempt to provide a much needed break from the monotony of a seemingly endless pursuit.  Breathe in the crisp early morning air, and watch as your warm exhale dissipates among the tangles of roots and rubble.  I encourage the viewer to just take a moment to look and listen.​​​​​​​

Ancient Mother

'Ancient Mother' presents a magnificent oak tree on the edge of a reserve in central California, not far from the Pacific coast.​​​​​​​  This forest is over 800 years old and feels as though it is home to many prehistoric manifestations of my imagination.  At the end of a long day of exploring and photographing this arcane realm, 'she' found me at her feet imbued with awe and reverence.  To me, this image embodies the wild places we once spent countless hours in as a child, perhaps when our minds were unadulterated by time.
