avatar head outlineA photo blog about loving life and sharing my profound appreciation for the world around us. My goal is to make a positive contribution to the webiverse by making and sharing inspirational photos. I want to show nature in all its glory, the animals we share the world with, the people I meet and the places I go. I carefully observe life and nature and capture amazing moments forever in photos and images - be it a cat nimbly climbing a tree, a smile from a stranger or autumn light falling on golden leaves. Many images featured here are in high resolution – at least 1920 x 1080 pixels – and shot with professional camera equipment. Enjoy the sunshine!
