OVERVIEW Artistic interpretation of nature, with an emphasis on less well-known subject matter and locales. Images range from the representational to the abstract, from broad landscapes to patterns in the macro world.

GEOGRAPHIC AREAS Nearly all states in the American West in all seasons, westward from the Continental Divide, the Pacific Northwest to the American Southwest, and up and down the West Coast. New and expanded coverage of the Tuscany region of Italy and the Greek island of Santorini during the spring of 2011. 2012 summer coverage of Provence, France.
