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.

Beautiful place, interesting foreshortening, excellent composition. Liked. Thank you. With friendly hello and respect from Odessa, belovka.

Danke sehr viel. Mit besten Grüßen, Larry

The photo was taken in the late 1990's, when we had a boat small enough to visit the marina. Glad you like the photo.

Please feel free to use the photos. If published, please credit: "Photo by Jim Nieland".

Probably more than 20 years ago I was able to walk/crawl to the back of the cave. Only attempt this at low tide and on a calm day when the swell is not bad. You can hug the rocks where the wall meets the "floor". At the back is a small "landing" of smooth stone and there is a blow hole which creates a mist as the surge pushes the water up and it atomizes. I've seen seals hanging out in the back there, they were very surprised to see me. The sound of the water surging in the channel, the light and feel as the air responds to the moving water are unforgettable and primordial. It is a unique experience, one you will never forget.

"Angell's" is on the side of the truck.

Great photo, and thanks for all your interesting pics.
