Chapman State Park

It was blue sky and cold. We had just seen an eagle as we were crossing a nearby suspension bridge.

We had never heard of this shrub/tree until spotting them on a trail in Mantua, Ohio. I snapped a picture of the fruit and Ali identified it later.

Fungus on Tanbark

It's been a long time since I took this photo. This one has meaning for me because it was also the first photo I took that was published. I also like the image a lot. I don't remember where or when it was published anymore and my copy of the publication is long gone, but it remains a special image. The photo was taken on a trail that remains special for me. Tanbark Trail is a peaceful place to go and rejuvenate yourself. I returned there yesterday to tap its magical powers.

Wintertime Goat Island

I almost never stay in the Falls during trips to the area, but in March 2005 I needed to be in Niagara Falls for a few days of business meetings. I went walking at dawn one very cold morning and found myself at a very deserted Goat Island. I was impressed by the permanent changes the wind had made to the shape of the trees.

Western New York in snow

This is an old farm near our New York operations. I have stopped by here in the evenings to watch birds.

Gwen and Becky

This photo was taken in Pennsylvania during a summer evening in 2004. Becky and Gwen found a spot on a rug and rested after a day in the woods.

Snake in Mulch Pile

We have a large mulch pile where we grow squash and pumpkins. I was working in the garden in June 2004 and photographed this snake.

Water Lily - Deleware Water Gap

We had the visited Delaware Water Gap in June 2004 for a hiking vacation. It was a wonderful area with very nice hiking. This image was taken at a small lake at one of the trailheads during our hiking adventures. We didn't get to see the black bear that excited some hikers we passed headed in the opposite direction, but we got to see some vistas and this water lily.

Metzenbaum Park

These photos were taken at the park nearest our home. It is one of our favorite parks because it is near home; the dogs enjoy visiting; there are wonderful wildflowers; and the bird population is exceptional. Though only 68 acres, this park regularly has multiple scarlet tanagers, rufous-sided towhees, and owls mixing their calls with an abundance of more common birds in the area. These photos were taken in October 2002.

Picnic Pavillion Lockport, New York

This photo was taken in August 2005 at an old municipal park in Lockport, New York. The park is bordered with a large fence identifying the neighboring site as a hazardous waste site.

Walking the Ashtabula Greenway Trail

We were searching for a friend's new caches on the Ashtabula Greenway Trail in May 2006 when I took this photo. I stayed back a bit to let Ali and our Aussie Gwen move to the distance. The shot is different for us because the Aussie is 'my' dog and will almost certainly stop and turn back toward me if she gets too far ahead. For some reason, she stayed with Ali while I walked Eva.

Lone sailboat off Mentor Headlands

There's something about being at the beach once a season has passed. In northeast Ohio that time comes very quickly when the calendar changes from July to August. This photo was taken in October 2003 in the middle of a very turbulent time.


The photos here will be my favorite landscape prints in color. I plan to keep this to 50 photos at most. If I find something to add, I will take away. They are here for you to enjoy and reflect. I will try to add notes where appropriate.
