Nature photography in Texas

This is one of my favorite photos…

Wildflowers in a Texas meadow, with the yellow composite forced into a curve by the entanglements of its neighboring purple vetch.

What caption would you give it?

Photography–Misty Morning

Misty morning photography is a special pleasure of mine. The world beyond your own little space just drops away, and your focus has to be on the things near to you. Sometimes, I think, we need a misty morning for our lives as well, when the outside world and its cares fade away and we focus on those closest to us and see the beauty there.

Perhaps you should give yourself a misty morning today.

Fall Photography

Sunlight shines through fall leaves and branches

I searched the file of photographs I’d taken through the years during this autumnal time of year.


And I began to wonder how I managed to let the practice of photographing the natural world, which gave me such joy, fall by the wayside.

I thought about how life crowds in on our time, as we inch along from day to day.

I thought about the things we take for granted when we fail to look closely,

How short a time we are given on this beautiful planet,

Empty rowboat seen through pine trees

And how soon that time can end.

There may be no greater foolishness than setting aside the things that give us joy. But it is never too late to turn over a new leaf. Even in the fall.
