Welcome to my first blog. Through this blog I want to share a few of the photographic images that I have captured over the last 25 years. I thoroughly enjoy expressing myself through photography and strive to create the best images I can, no matter what subject I find. The galleries on my site are a small sampling of my work, and I hope you enjoy viewing the many places I have been blessed to visit and capture over the years. Photography is a very powerful medium, and for me just revisiting images from the past can trigger memories of the experience, from recalling brutal cold, to glorious sunsets, to ocean waves crashing around me, it’s all there in a captured image. Hopefully you can find inspiration in some small way through my site, and be inspired to seek out the beauty that is all around us in a variety of subjects.
I really like your website! You did a very nice job with it! It show such a nice representation of all of the different types of photography you have done! Now, you need to add portraits! 🙂
I will link to your site for portrait work when you get famous.
While looking at your pieces of art, I am amazed at the great ability you have to capture a great composition repeatedly.
The ease is using your website to see your work is high.
I will be back to see updates as you get them done.

Your work is wonderful! I have never seen the majority of the butterfly species you posted. A real delight.
There are a lot,but the numbers are dwindling.
While I am very familiar with your work and I know this is just a small sample, I must say the landscape/scenery and sunrise/sunset images are my favorites.
Thanks Melissa.glad you enjoy those type of shots.they are among my favorites too

Thanks,but I usually dont do the required portion,so I usually decline.
No problem–and you are welcomed. I used to but had a change of heart somewhere along the lines. Regardless, Your photographs inspire me to become better at the craft–very much so. But, you appear to be the best at what you do. If I ever have a place or know of someone looking for such pictures, you absolutely will come to mind.
Thanks so much.
I just found your blog today, I had googled Lancaster ,Wisconsin..because I had been there,and the Landscape was so amazingly lovely,like nine I had ever seen…was just wishing to find pictures to remember it… so seeing a picture which led me to the blog …I have just begun to scroll down through them…Thy are gorgeously beautiful ,everyone that I’ve looked at so far, what a Blessing to see through the lens of your hearts eyes…
you capture every little detail that I do so enjoy noticing…
thank you,although its not in wisconsin
Your work is just gorgeous. Just love your stuff from Rockport. One of my favorite places to visit in New England.
Thank you,new england in general is so scenic and Rockport is just a picture perfect place to visit.
Great shots of very familiar places. I live in Lancaster and have been to most if not all of these places with my cameras. The bleeding hearts and columbine above shows me how my images can be that much better. The ones I shot at Rock Ford are simply flowers, you captured much more.
I was hoping for a photo of you as we’ve probably met. If you see a tall, bearded guy with a Sony RX100, taking photos of the same things over and over in a futile attempt to get the perfect image say hi.
Thanks for stopping and commenting.I do the over and over thing too. you have some great shots on your site and I recognize them as well.I appreciate your comments.
Congratulations on your photos in the Lancaster County magazine article Christmas at the white house. It doesn’t say which are yours and which are Mr. Zutell’s, but my guess is that yours are the night shots. The opening double page spread with house and barn is inspiring.
Thanks for the heads up. I need to check it out and see what they used. the exterior shot is mine,but I gave him a few interiors to submit to them as well.
Thanks. Enjoying my visits here viewing your fascinating images. Regards from Thom at the immortal jukebox (plugged in and readynto play!).
Pleasure. Checkout the Jukebox when you have a few moments.
Just wanted to pop over here to tell you how very much I love your photography. Been following a while now but thought I’d add this little note in! You are very talented.
I appreciate your visiting and commenting.
You have some real nice Images here. I’ll be following. Just what type of camera do you use? Me? I shoot a Nikon D7000, a Nikon Coolpix P600, and a Pentax K10D with various Lens’s & Filters. Thanks for your comment. I always appreciate it.
d700 and 7000. always tripod mounted
Very nice work, all of it. Great images.
Thank you Don
Your photos are beautiful. Do you ever sell your prints?
yes I do. I usually do 8×12, 12×18, or larger if asked. let me know. my email is under my contact section. I can do anything you see here or elsewhere.
I really like your work.
Have you considered posting it on Instagram?
I am an old school leftover. I do not have the slightest clue about Instagram or if it has any benefit?
