Hi, I'm a hobbyist Photographer, and my love in photography is Backwaters and Swamps of the Adirondacks. For me, there is such a peaceful beauty within these quiet out of the way places, and an abundance of wild life, it has a way of bringing me totally into nature. My favorite Photographers are Elliot Porter, and Clyde Butcher. Porter for his Portraits of nature, and Butcher for his B&W of the Everglades.

Portraits Of Nature
Intimate part of a whole seldom ever seen for itself only a part of a whole, some times most times chaotic, but still the foundation of it's larger part, and for it's beauty and purpose should be seen and not overlooked.
