Woohoo!!!!  It took a little longer than I would have liked, but that's what I get for being away from DA for a year.  

Thank you to all who have dropped in and taken a look around.  Even more thanks to those of you who have taken a fancy to one or more of my shots.  There are soooo many great photographers and artists here, it really means a lot to get the encouragement and the critique.  I learn a little bit from everyone I come in contact here, so many thanks for the DA love and your respect!

Thanks to :iconryser915: for choosing "Gradient" Gradient by sonofsanford to be in his blog… .  It's truely an honor to see one of my photos next to so many other great shots.  

Most of all... Thanks to my old friends.... :iconfreddyfivemiles: :iconyoakmama: :iconchugach3dguy: :iconartgeek5000: and all of my new friends that I've gotten to know recently... your art truely inspires me!!

My Best Friend


Whether it's eagles or canyons I'm shooting, this guy is usually around.  He gets top billing because he first inspired me to be a photographer (and because I said so!)  Here's a few of my :+fav:'s.  Go by and say hi!

CHAD!!!! :hug:
I soooo was thinking of you this past weekend! Did you notice I made it to the slot canyon???? That place was amazing, but I could not believe how many people they packed into the caves! I really need to get back there to shoot some more because the time flew by too damn fast! (wasn't able to get on the photographers tour....)
