Welcome! There are views of civilization here, but more shows my outdoor travels

I like to explore & understand
I love flowers
I find peace in the wilds

This is home. Every week when I'm around, I take at least one long day hiking trip. Alameda, Contra Costa, and Marin counties -- home for most of my local hiking -- provide many options within a hour's drive. I don't shoot every trip, but when I do, I to try capture the flora and the seasonal landscape. There are a few local driving/touring excursions in here too. In part, this collection is my workshop for photography: keeping in practice, exploring technique, learning new equipment, etc.

The Mt. Diablo - Morgan Fire Recovery page is different. It collects galleries from the yearly folders to provide a picture of how nature has responded to that 3000+ acre fire on the northeast flank of Mt. Diablo. The Morgan Fire began on September 8, 2013, was essentially stopped in two days, and was contained in a week.
