The Alps

We were able to spend some time in France and Switzerland earlier this month! This meant I had opportunities to photograph these majestic mountains. What sticks out about the Alps compared to other mountain ranges is the magnitude of peaks at such high altitudes. Surrounding the Matterhorn are dozens of other peaks at least the same height! I have been to few places that gave me as much awe. But enough of me talking; on to the photographs!

From the Southwest

The last month has been a blur! Savannah and I went on a two week trek across the country to the southwest, camping as much as possible (it got cold!), and hiked as many trails as we could find. I have always wanted to see the southwest. The bare landscape of the desert has appealed to me for as long as I can remember. And finally I was able to experience it! What we found was the most diverse, interesting, and sometimes bizarre landscapes. The sugar-white sand of White Sands National Monument, the otherworldly Petrified Forest, the fiery-red hoodoos of Bryce Canyon, and the majestic valleys in Zion National Park all were unique and breathtaking. Below is snippet of the many photographs that were taken, and I’m sure there will be more to share in the future!

Badlands – Yellowstone – Grand Tetons

Had a great opportunity to go out West with my wife and our friend, Michelle, a couple of weeks ago and I wanted to share some of my favorites from the trip! We started in Badlands National Park in South Dakota. I’ve been wanting to go there for a while as the landscape has always intrigued me. I am already wanting to go back for a longer, more dedicated, trip. It is such a beautiful place! We then went on to Yellowstone, where we got to see so much unique features and animals. An experience to remember for sure! We lastly, spent a couple of days in the Grand Tetons to try our best to take in the grand, majestic mountains. I feel no image can capture this, but I will like to keep trying! So without further ado, here are some of my favorites!

February Wallpaper

If you ever get to walk around the many lakes at Shelby Farms Park in Memphis, TN while fog is settled over the still waters, do so. It is beautiful, and nothing in nature has ever rested my soul like that. It’s something to experience!

This wallpaper for your computer desktop was made last February. So view this image as window to a very peaceful place that is happening right now but is out of reach. So close to home, yet so far. And, Memphians, use this as a reminder that there is beauty that surrounds us if we only remember to look!
