I am an enthusiastic, amateur photographer. I’m also an insomniac. One night while lying in bed hoping to fall asleep, I brainstormed about why I spend so much time, effort, and money on photography. Photography satisfies my creative urges.  I can create a photo, a photo book, a video slideshow set to music, or a blog post. Photography gets me outside and combines perfectly with walking, hiking, and driving the backroads.  When searching for subjects, I can be completely alone in the forests or prairies. I sometimes find myself in areas and times where I can hear nothing but the sounds of nature.  No sounds of man or his machines - hard to find; mostly during winter and in the north woods.
