"Froggy" The ultimate in color contrast...bright green on fiery red Sugar Maple leaves.
"Blue Birds" Look carefully and you'll notice the small air bubbles on the petals of this Dutch iris. When photographed underwater, lighting can be diffused in interesting ways, giving many objects, especially flowers, an exciting new vibrancy.
"Callas" Simplicity itself, yet the epitome of elegance.
"Etoile de l'Eau" This Stargazer Lily was left in water for a week prior to its being photographed in 12 separate photos underwater in an aquarium. The process removes some of the pigment from the petals revealing a delicate tracery of veins.
"Foxy Lady" This native foxglove (Digitalis purpurea) is an incredibly sharp composite of 21 separate photographs: 7 vertical panels stitched as a panoramic, each panel comprised of 3 photos at different focal points front-to-back.
"Truck Tatts" Tagged for years by local "artists", this 1959 Ford F100 has become a work of art in its North Seattle neighborhood.
"Arbor Vitae" (Tree of Life) The incredible architecture of this very old Japanese maple is enhanced by this infra-red photograph.
"Skagit Valley Spring" A 100 year old barn provides the perfect backdrop for a field of tulips near Mount Vernon...notice Mt. Baker peeking over the roof of the barn.
"Hearts on a String" One of the most unusual of spring flowers, Bleeding Hearts are called "Ladies-in-the-Bath" in England...turn them upside-down and you'll see why.
"Diva" An homage to Georgia O'Keefe...the interior of Magnolia "Diva" reveals the delicate shading and remarkable structure inside.
"Golden Chalice" Shot underwater, some careful lighting reveals the delicate veining and sensuous curves of a gold calla lily.
"Lady in Black & White" Originally a bright yellow, this Gerbera daisy provides a much more effective background for a vibrant ladybug as a black & white.
