It has been quite some time since I've updated my blog. If you've had an occasion to visit my website you will have noticed periodic additions of new images and galleries from my travels in the American West and in the Pacific region.
About a year ago Kathy and I decided that we wanted to relax and travel more. At the same time I was hesitant to give up Earth & Light Gallery which I've immensely enjoyed. The gallery has enabled me to meet wonderful people from all over the world. Almost without exception everyone has been gracious. I take pride in the fact that thousands of people have enjoyed my photographic work enough to purchase prints, cards and DVDs. I thank you all for that support.
In early February, 2015, Kathy and I will be closing our gallery location in the Kayenta Art Village. However, it won't go away. Cherie and George Stoddard at Gallery 873, located literally across the street in the Kayenta Art Village, will continue to display, sell and accept custom orders for my images. I will, of course, continue to expand my website with new images from travels and return trips to shoot here in the American Southwest.
As I told close friends a few months ago, my two personal favorite locales in the world are the red rock country of Utah and the St. George/Ivins area in particular, and tropical islands. It's now time for the Islands Chapter in our lives—Kathy and I will be moving to Hawaii at the end of February.
We have chosen to move to Hawaii – The Big Island. The Big Island is home to 11 of the world's 13 climate zones. There are as many different climate zones of the island of Hawaii as exist along the entire west coast of North America stretching from Alaska to Costa Rica. This diversity in landscape and weather provides wonderful photographic opportunities. We have chosen a new home located safely away from Pele's current lava flow.
If you live in the St. George/southern Utah area, I invite you to come by and visit once again before we move. You can continue to reach me by email or phone. Thanks again for ten wonderful years here at Kayenta in Ivins.
