A hilltop view of Pistol River State Park along the Oregon coast. This was taken in December during our annual Photo Cascadia​ get together. After a walk to a distant hill, I needed a zoom to capture and compress all of the State Park's sea stacks. I love the coastal pinks and blues before sunrise.

A leaked FAA document shows drone regulations won't be as severe as once expected.
The FAA appears poised to release regulations that will impose a minimal burden on businesses, paving the way for integration of drones into the national airspace.  Information about the forthcoming regulations is contained in an inadvertently published document that appears to be an FAA economic analysis of the long awaited regulations for small drones.

An interesting take on one photographer's journey with his own landscape photography.
A curmudgeonly look at the current state of landscape photography. I was at in Munich yesterday, munching some bratwurst and drinking a beer in a place where they had a huge TV monitor on the wall ...

February might be my favorite month to photograph landscapes in the Columbia River Gorge. The days are moody and dramatic with sun breaks, and an area known for wind is quite placid during February, so the reflections are wonderful. Here is an image taken this evening from a vantage point in Mosier, Oregon. Taken with my Canon 70-200mm at f11, CPL.

Quite an interesting read about posting images or video from National Parks.
This fall, an Instagrammer named Casey Nocket made news when she posted photos of permanent acrylic portraits that she'd painted on rock faces in national parks across the country. She represents an extreme example of a problem that's been cropping up a lot lately: people getting in trouble with their cameras on public lands.

After almost all of January with highs between 50-70 F (10-21 C) temps in Oregon, the turkey vultures and osprey have returned 6 weeks early and so have the wood ticks. The first of the wildflowers are now popping up in the Columbia River Gorge too. These are Grass Widows (Sisyrinchium douglaii) and for me they are a sure sign of spring. This image was taken today - January 28, 2015.

Introduction
My photographs are an extension of the connection I feel with the outdoors and the wilderness, and they reflect my deep respect for nature and the fragility of the environment.

As a long-distance hiker, I have sharpened my photographic perspective over the years on the Pacific Crest Trail, the Continental Divide, the Canadian Divide and most recently walking across Iceland. After years of capturing images along the trail and becoming more and more passionate about the art of photography, I took the leap and “quit my day job” to devote myself full time to my photographic work.

Now as I photograph throughout the US and around the world, I am continually awed by the broad spectrum of nature’s offerings—from a delicate heliconia flower on the exotic island of Roratonga to the sweeping Icelandic landscape. My particular fondness for the Pacific Northwest is reflected in my local outdoor shots. My goal is to capture the wonders I see in nature for the enjoyment of all those with an eye for the extraordinary. Look for my book "Japanese Gardens of North America" coming out soon.
