“Photographing Water with Slow Shutter Speeds”

Alberta Falls Hike

When photographing water, try using a slow shutter speed to create a “cotton candy” effect with the flow of the water.  This will require a tripod, however, the results are stunning.  As indicated in previous blog posts, all images on this blog can be created as fine art prints for any visitor.  Simply, go the the purchasing page of my website and give me a call or email me at with your selections.  Nature photography is inspirational to me as each moment reflects change which is a constant in all of our lives. attempts to capture individual moments of pristine beauty with a hope that they can reflect blessings in your life.  Please visit my galleries at and enjoy my nature photography fine art prints, motivational posters and inspirational note cards.

“Nature Photography and History”

“Tomboy Mine”

Several years ago, I visited Telluride and did a jeep tour into the backcountry.  The remains of the Tomboy Mine fascinated me and I was inspired to find out more about the early life of the people in the mining town of Tomboy.  Consequently, I found a wonderful book in the local Telluride bookstore.  The title is “Tomboy Bride:  A Woman’s Personal Account of Life in Mining Camps of the West” by Harriet Fish Backus.  This is a great read for anyone interested in history, the beauty of our land and the role of women in early pioneer days.  My travels have taught me that inspirational nature photography comes in many forms.  The beauty of the land can motivate us to honor our country and the integrity of our heritage.  For additional fine art prints, please visit my gallery at and also read my inspirational writings in my fine art note card gallery and motivational poster gallery.  All of my writings have been inspired by nature.

This is a great photograph and was taken at Katmai National Preserve in Alaska as the bears were searching and fishing for salmon. You will find this fine art print in the “New Images” section of my nature photography gallery located in my website for your pleasure. Enjoy!
