Found this great brick building with the lettering on the outside of the building that spelled GAS. I’m sure it had been there a long time. This image has been enhanced using Photoshop. I looked up where I think this was taken and I think it was in a historical old town – almost a ghost town – Virginia City, Montana. This was taken during the same time as when I was at the Rodeo in the same area. A wonderful trip and lots of good memories.Read More →

Reflections along the boat docks on Lake Coeur d’Alene in northern Idaho are a stunning array as the shades of blue colorize the water.  This picture was taken with my first digital camera, a Minolta DiMage, and though I like it would not be suitable for a larger print format due to the limitations of the camera.Read More →

While I love this shot I always wish that I had taken it in later years when I had a good digital camera with a much higher resolution instead of that old Minolta Digital that was my first.   That camera was light and easy to use but the resolution was so low that I quickly grew tired of it.

In 2011 I was in my home state of Idaho up in the Northern Panhandle just south of Cour de’ Alene for a family gathering.

Visiting during the summer and fall months can sometimes make me wish to return.  This rainbow was a vivid surprise just after a sprinkling rain.  This picture is dedicated to my dear brother, David.

This image was one of my first attempts at creating what is called a compilation using Photoshop. It’s done by combining multiple images with layers and masking.  It took many hours and is of at least 5 separate photos taken during the early fall season as we drove along an Idaho highway or while visiting with friends in the Idaho Panhandle. The sky is an image that probably did not occur in Idaho but I liked the heavy clouds and deep blue sky.  I think it’s probably from the Caribbean. When altering the sky, it was important to keep in mind that there would be shadowingRead More →
