Nature photographer in Cottonwood, Arizona.

My wife Leda, and I, Theo, found our partnership originally to center on practicing and teaching the message of awakening through the masterwork called A Course in Miracles. We picked up a simple digital camera several years ago to bring with us to Europe, where we had been invited to teach. That little camera sparked in both of us a memory of our joy of photography. Unbeknownst to us, we had stepped through the doorway into a brand new endeavor; finding and capturing instants of light with our camera.

Soon after we discovered this amazing artists' community - deviantart. Here we have received the feedback and assistance to help us grow as photographers and to strengthen our love for the art - and for this I am very grateful. Thank you all!

To love beauty is to see light. ~Victor Hugo

“A picture is the expression of an impression. If the beautiful were not in us, how would we ever
recognize it?” ~Ernst Haas

Light glorifies everything. It transforms and ennobles the most commonplace and ordinary subjects.
The object is nothing; light is everything. ~Leonard Misonne

Some photographers take reality... and impose the domination of their own thought and spirit. Others come before reality more tenderly and a photograph to them is an instrument of love and revelation. ~Ansel Adams

Shadows of the Setting Sun pano
The shadows of the setting sun were moving rapidly across the lake as we arrived and we only had about 20 minutes of light on the lake before it was gone. Dam at Watson Lake near Prescott, Arizona with the San Francisco Peaks near Flagstaff in background.
