Galaxy Arching over Lake

Galaxy Arching over Lake

Based out of Albuquerque in the Land of Enchantment, I spend a good bit of my free time capturing the visible portion the electromagnetic spectrum after it has interacted with or emanated from the natural landscape.  

It is my desire to share the beauty, vastness, and variety of creation with others so that we may all grow in our appreciation of this small corner of the universe we call home.

If you'd like a copy of any of these works for yourself, I sell prints, metal prints, and canvas prints through this site.  You may also contact me via the email below if you are interested in non-standard size or format (i.e. framed).

The Other Night in New Mexico

The Other Night in New Mexico

As a New Mexico (nearly) native, I finally made it out to the Bisti Badlands for the (also nearly) new moon. The formations are as varied, other-worldly, and numerous as any search on the location would indicate. Perfect for nightscapes with the Milky Way...did I mention the dark skies of western New Mexico? This image is on top of a nest of hoodoos with the landscape shot at twilight, and the sky a bit later. The clouds had mostly cleared just as the Milky Way was exiting my frame to the west. 

Galaxy Rise

Galaxy Rise

The Bisti Badlands make for an ideal backdrop to other worldly night sky images such as Milky Way rise. The hoodoos, a couple compliments of some petrified wood here, produce a scene that is itself alien for many of us. Add in the dusty portion of the Milky Way before you can discern its form, and you have this scene. Jupiter is blaring away in the upper right for good measure. The landscape is a bit of a composite to retain detail and contrast of earlier light.
