Recent Grasses

I love photographing grasses in various conditions and with a variety of styles.  Below is a small collection from this year so far of some grasses I’ve seen.  Capitol Reef, Zion, Kodachrome Basin are all represented here in the images although the locations are irrelevant.  I don’t always look for these types of scenes, instead waiting for a scene to stand out to me while out with the camera.  This way they’re not forced and are a true joy each time I discover a scene such as these.  Thanks for looking:)

A Few Recent Images

The last 2 months have been pretty busy with little time for editing!  I’m looking forward to sharing a few more sets of images soon and finally catching up.  These images are varied in style, just as the landscape itself varies.  The one obvious standout image was a personal trip to the Redwoods in October.  The rest are from Southern Utah in various locations.  Check back soon for some updated images and other news:)
