For me photography is a great excuse to get outdoors, enjoy the natural beauty, and work the right side of the brain for a change. My main interest is nature photography - especially wildlife. I'm fortunate in that aspect to live in Colorado about an hour's drive from Rocky Mountain National Park - one of my favorite haunts. I also like low light landscapes, nightscapes, and astronomy.

Flickr is a blast, and I've learned a lot from the other members. I really appreciate honest and thoughtful comments on my pics, as well as the occasional "fav"! Good luck to all and happy photoshooting!

    "This testimonial has been long overdue. His was the first work that I ever saw on Flickr, and it gave me the confidence to start posting my stuff. I've seen his photography grow and flourish since I've started following his stream. I always look forward to the wonderful wildlife shots that he posts. He must indeed be a very patient and early rising man to work the magic that he does.
    Keep up the great work, and I always look forward to your new images"

    "I am lucky to know the mysteriously named gainesp2003 in real life as well as on Flickr. He is an amazing guy, dedicated to getting amazing shots. He is incredibly patient, and seems to never sleep, all of the must-have qualities of a great wildlife and astro photographer. His work speaks to this constantly.

    If the man had a gun instead of a camera, he'd be really dangerous. Lucky for the US wildlife, he's more interested in capturing moments than meat."
