This site will give you a tour into the scenics and wildlife of the Allegheny National Forest region of Northwest Pennsylvania and beyond. I've been hiking the hills and valleys of the area for over thirty years, capturing the beauty of the area on film. Take a look through the photo galleries to see some of the many images that I have seen through the lens of my camera. I hope you enjoy them.

We are now well into the digital age of photography. I'm sure there is some die-hard film shooters still left in the world, but I personally don't know of any. There is so much you can do with digital that film didn't offer. I was a die-hard film user until I realized that if I didn't get on that digital bandwagon soon, I would be missing something quite wonderful. I left film for digital, and never looked back. I'm still from the old school of photography, and don't do a lot of computer enhancing. I'm that way from the film days when if you didn't get that shot on the first or second try, you probably weren't going to get it at all. With today's cameras and computer enhancements, it is quite easy to make a bad picture look pretty good without much work. I often tell people that anybody in this day and age can be a decent photographer, and encourage people to do so. One can get into photography very economically, or spend a great deal of money on it. It depends on what you want to do with your photos.

When I'm out in the field shooting nature, I now can see instantly if my camera settings are correct or need an adjustment. It's then up to the photographer to decide what needs to be done in order to get that perfect shot. My favorite saying in photography, especially nature, is you got to be at the right place at the right time. This has been true in about 80% of everything I've ever photographed. Another tip I always have in the back of my head are these three words; composition, composition, composition. When you look through that viewfinder, you should see your picture, the exact way you want it, before you even touch that shutter. No subject's heads cut off, subject's too high, low, or off to the wrong side of the frame. Focus and blurry pictures are the biggest faults I have in digital. With cameras capable of extraordinary clear images, the slightest movement will cause a blurry picture. You may never notice it until you make that enlargement. The tripod and monopod industry must love digital photography!

I can't wait to see the advancements that will happen in photography in 2013. I also can't wait to see if I can make into that right place and time in 2013. Keep shooting, and have fun.
