Sawtooths in Summer by tourofnature
Sawtooths in Summer
Little Redfish Lake reflecting some of Idaho's Sawtooth Range finest peaks. Incredible place year round, but particularly inviting in summer.

Moonrise by tourofnature
The moon and it's gravity have a huge impact on life on earth, scientists believe that without the moon and its gravitational effects, advanced life wouldn't be possible on Earth.

Its a beautiful form of sunlight bouncing off that spinning rock back to us here on Earth.

Labor of Love by tourofnature
Labor of Love
An image created during a backpacking trip to Utah's High Uinta Wilderness over this past 4th of July weekend. In the image, the amazingly picturesque Ostler Peak is reflecting in the waters of a lazy and calm stretch of river in one of the most photogenic meadows I've visited.

This one ranks up there on my personal all-time favorites. The image is truly a labor of love. What I mean is the struggle to capture this type of photo creates a very rewarding overall experience on a personal level.

When backpacking, weight is a crucial factor to ones ability to travel long distances and enjoy a trip. Ounces add up quick when carried over 10+ miles. As I was getting my pack ready, I couldn't help but ask myself why the hell I was piling all this extra weight into my pack with photo gear including two lenses, my camera body, tripod, a light kit, extra batteries and filters? Weight I knew from experience would take it's toll the further we traveled.

I have a full-time 9-5 job, making photography solely a passion of mine. I make very little income from it, which is fine by me. My goal is not to monetize my images. The unique experiences gained on my travels are where the drive to continue come from. After a grueling 6 mile hike with around 1900ft of elevation gained we arrived our final camp site. Exhausted but enthusiastic, I headed out to the meadow around sunset. My question of the necessity of adding all that extra weight was answered fully during the process of photographing a great light show in such a special place in the world. Truly a labor of love!

Anyone who made it through to this sentence, I commend you.

Have a great day and thanks for the interest in my photography.

As you may have noticed I enjoy the outdoors. My camera gives me a hell of an excuse to escape the city to wide open spaces. I recently opened up my business front at [ ] and so far we've had steady growth.

I'm here to learn and share my work so feel free to comment and critique if you've got something to say. Thank you in advance for the support and feedback.

From what I've seen of your gallery and many others Utah is the prettiest State in America. It's top of my list for when I visit.
