The images here are from film and have been printed in the darkroom. For those who don't know about film and print processing, it's "old school" long before the age of digital, and I am proud to say that I have been doing what I love for 48 years now and have no intentions of stopping any time soon.

Each image is hand printed in a wet darkroom and only a limited number of no more than 25 prints of each image is or ever has been printed from a particular frame. Different sizes are made of the some of the same image. Sizes range from 4x5 inches to 11x14 inches printed in a wet darkroom on Ilford papers. Larger prints from film are scanned in and digitaly printed. They have to be specially ordered.

Evening Fog, Point Lobos, June 1994
This image of Point Lobos was taken from Hwy 1 just south of Carmel at Monastery Beach as the fog was moving in. I stopped and only had a few minutes to set up my camera in the bed of my 1964 Ford Ranchero coming back from a day of shooting along the Big Sur coast. This was one of those shots that being in the right place at the right time of day and with the help of Monther Nature as she brought forth the fog.

Driftwood Beach, Jekell Island, GA
Constant erosion has created a surreal landscape of bleached and preserved fallen trees. Located on the north end of Jekyll Island, Driftwood beach will amaze you with the beautiful driftwood and trees that resemble a scene from another world. These gnarled and weathered trees are left behind from years of erosion. One of my newer places to photograph.

Snow Fence, New Jersey Shore 1983.
While looking at the snow fencing, it gave me a new perspective on design where mother nature was the sand artist and man put up walls... In cross-section of a typical beach barrier any long narrow Island of sand or a barrier between the open ocean. Mother nature's busiest construction engineers from a Ridge dunes back from the high tide line due actually is nature's line of defense. “Wind blown sand becomes obstructed by the fencing and deposited as its velocity slows.
