I have had a life-long interest in photography. An interest in the outdoors and natural resource management led to employment with the National Park Service and later the US Forest Service. During this time I developed a special interest in caves, bats, and nature in general. I am now retired, but continue assisting agencies as an environmental engineering consultant. Travel, and many days spent in the field, provide ample opportunity for photography. Many of the photos shown here are the result of finding myself in unique or little-visited locations. I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I do taking them.

Thanks for you comment. I got to thinking and realized that one of my first summer jobs was also in wheat and alfalfa fields in the Willamette Valley. I definitely understand the hot and dirty part! Combines back then didn't have air conditioned cabs, I remember climbing down covered with dirt and chaff; it was just part of the job.

Hi Pamela, I was going through your photos and enjoying them as usual. I noticed this one at Peterson Rock Garden, I remember the garden as a child when my grandmother would always make a point of stopping with my sister and I. As kids we thought the pretty rocks were really cool!

The thing that struck me about the photo was not the place, which brought back memories, but what was growing at the pond edge; a lush growth of yellow flag iris. Turns out this is a highly invasive species which quickly spreads in aquatic environments. It's the plant equivalent of zebra mussels! I bet the new owners of Peterson Rock Garden don't know what they have!

Keep up the good work. You are one of my favorite photographers.
