I'm pleased to announce that I am the featured artist at Truckee's CoffeeBar next month. I will be displaying a variety of prints in twpo different mediums - metal prints and acrylic face mounts.

The images I have printed are a selection made from my favorite images of the last three years in Alaska, Iceland, Hawai`i, California, Nevada, and New Mexico.

These are black inside and are perfect for writing your Mom (have you written her lately? If not you should). I'll also be displaying fifteen 8x8" metal prints on a custom set of metal shelves. For these imjages, I have selected textures, and patterns that caught my eye in my travels as a photographer around the world in the past few years.

Favorite Places: Donner Lake

Every photographer has their local "go-to" spot that they can hop in the car /jump on their bike and get to in 5 minutes to blow off some steam with shutter therapy after a long day in front of the computer. Mine is Donner Lake, located right here in Truckee, California.  Even though it is 90% surrounded by houses, Donner Lake is remarkably beautiful to photograph if you work hard to find the right angles and the conditions converge to bring good light.

Sometimes the lake even freezes over to the point where people drag couches out onto it and play hockey.

Sailing stones on Donner Lake

The lake has even  been known to have it's own sailing stones, like those on the Racetrack Playa in Death Valley.
