Selected Photos That Are Some of My Favorite Photos Taken Each Year

The photos in these galleries include equipment and  exposure information, location, etc. for photographers who are interested in the technical side of our photography.  We are diehard Olympus fans and have used Olympus equipment for more than 32 years for both professional and personal photography.  Photos made before May 2006 were made with an OM2n.  Photos made after that date were made with an E20, E1, E510, or E3.

Most of the photos were made in Olympus Raw format and processed with Photoshop Elements 7, 8, and 9, or

Olympus Studio 2 or Master 2.  We also use Microsoft Office PictureIt for quick edits and compression.

I hope everyone who views these photos will enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making the photos.

All of my photos and the poem by Sarah Clarkson are copyrighted.

Permission is required to use any of the photos and/or the poem for any commercial reason.

Churches may use my scenery, nature, and wildlife photos for projections, teaching, bulletins, etc without asking. 

However,a courtesy email regarding which photo and how it was used would be appreciated.

I am slowly adding photos to this gallery software while I try to learn to use it.  I like this software because it

allows for some flexibility and automatically includes the technical information.



The following are done on either separate web pages of an free gallery program I used to use.

Wind Song

Wind Song is a poem written by my incredibly talented niece, Sarah Clarkson.  She put this poem on her personal blog,Itinerant Idealist.  When I read it, I thought of a photo I had made of aspens trees north of Pagosa Springs, Colorado, Oct. 2, 2004 that were in their bright yellow stage and immediately put the words to the photo.


Almost anyone who vacations a lot, especially camping, has a story about a vacation that they describe as The Vacation From Hell.  This is the story of our special vacation!  Not many photos here but the story is a riot.  If you can top this one, let me know because I would love to read it!  Believe it or not, many of our vacations over the years have been filled with unique experiences, however, after 34 years, this one is by far the best!  In hindsight, I wish we had kept diaries of all of our adventures because it would have definitely had a shot at the best sellers list for true short stories

Our Summer 2005 Vacation?






This page is a work in progress.  I will be adding more photos as time permits. Please come back often to view the galleries as they are added or grow in size.
