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.

I just discovered this fabulous photo via Google, Elfin Cove, Ak. I spent summer of '59 trolling for salmon in this area and have an original Munoz watercolor of Three Hill Island. I remember the thousands of puffins flying all around this island! Great to see this identical scene; Elfin Cove was truly "elfin" in '59.

Thank you for visiting. I am happy I can share my photos with you. ~Larry

The mine map(http://static.panoramio.com/photos/original/50308886.jpg) seems to indicate that one tours the Techatticup mine as stated. I guess we will have to agree to disagree.

This part of coast is GREAT! I like it - especially Cannon Beach! Regards, milli

That's a massive dune - surprised the vegetation is hanging on.

This is a great spot. Its been a long time since I've been walking here...
