Quality light, strong subjects and artful composition are key elements for successful photographic art.  Combine these qualities with originality and a little luck, magic can happen. 

A short-order cook in Lees Ferry, AZ described the morning light that painted the Vermillion Cliffs behind his café as the “a God thing”.  I have never heard nature described in a more elegant way.  I have spent the last twenty years traveling much of North America looking for  opportunities to capture the God Thing.

The follow images are just a portion of my efforts to capture just such moments.
