Trees are compelling. Their shapes, trunks, branches and leaves all call to my appreciation of color, line and pattern. A delicate line of light that illuminates the yellow leaves of fall aspens is a beautiful moment filled with fascinating complexity. The combination of the strength and endurance of trees, with their ability to bend and change with the seasons, embodies all the best of nature and man. Capturing that essence with my camera and blending it with the artful application of technology creates some of my favorite images.
