If I was given an all expenses-paid photo trip anywhere, I would head to the Sierra Mountains. Highway 395 from Lone Pine to Mono Lake transports me to my favorite destinations: the Alabama Hills, Bristlecone Pine forest, Bishop, Mammoth Lakes, and Mono Lake. These are places where I enjoy roaming free with my camera.

When not exploring my favorite California landscapes, I enjoy finding images in my everyday life, especially around my home and garden.

Does luck play a role in photography? "Lucky" elements can be incorportated into a photograph, but opportunity and imagination are needed.
