Welcome to my blog! I created this site in 2008 to provide a place for showcasing my photos and to provide information or links helpful to other photographers. As time has passed, I've added music videos and information as well. I will occasionally make comments, but will not preach or keep anyone from making comments of their own. Everyone is entitled to an opinion and I love the feedback! My goal is to make this website a regular destination for anyone who loves photography and music and wants to see what I've been up to.

YOU CAN LEAVE A COMMENT AT THE END OF ANY OF MY POSTS (all comments are moderated before publishing)

You might recognize this song from a video that went viral a while back.  That video featured the "longest dance treadmill performance" with this song, "Atom Bomb" performed  by The Strike, of Utah.
I found the group in a video of them singing the song and share it here.  If you like music that's upbeat and gets your blood flowing, you'll love Chris Crabb's energetic singing!  I honestly can't understand why they haven't appeared on late night TV yet! They are too good to be ignored.Watch and listen here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ui-_IUylvoA

Update: I think I figured out why this band doesn't have the visibility they deserve.  Turns out there are several bands who have the name "The Strike", including one hailing from Chicago and one that doesn't exist anymore, that is British, simply known as "Strike". There could be others, but I honestly don't understand how this can legally happen!

I love the scenic combination of a majestic mountain and its reflection in the lake in front of it! Add a sky with colored clouds from a sunrise or sunset, properly composed and exposed, and you have what is technically called a "keeper". Below is an example of one of my own images. It's from the Alta Lake Campground near Telluride, Co. of Mt. Palmyra and Alta Lake. Check out the article from Digital Photography School on how to get yourself a keeper when you're camping near a mountain and lake. http://digital-photography-school.com/9-tips-for-photographing-mountain-lake-reflections/
