  • Icicles on Gorge Wall

    Icicles on Gorge Wall

    These icicles were photographed while hiking on the trail between Upper and Lower Piney Falls, located on the Cumberland Plateau in the Piney Falls State Natural Area, near Grandview, TN.

    It’s a nice contrast between green moss and white ice, which would look wonderful behind glass in a frame on a wall in your home. You can find many prints available in my gallery, so stop by for a visit when you’re in the neighborhood…

  • Water Watches Winter

    Water Watches Winter

    Poetry for Kids (channeling my inner Dr. Suess) 🤪

    The seasonal cold has halted play, and most of the water has gone away. Frozen ’til another day…perhaps, until the month of May. All of the water, that is to say, except a sphere of water so pure, which Old Man Winter failed to sway. So, it remains today, having its way and planning to stay – just one droplet, but that’s okay.

    Return to Winter

    ‘Tis the Season

    Despite the cold weather and an imposition upon our outdoor activities, a fresh blanket of snow is a beautiful sight. Seen here, a snow-covered forest along the Huron River, in Ann Arbor, Michigan, at Bandemer Park. To see prints and more, visit these galleries:

  • Poem of Winter

    Poem of Winter

    Rolling hills of winter snow
    With a forest donned in white
    Memories in monotone
    Layered landscapes of delight

    This vintage photograph was taken at Nichols Arboretum, in the city of Ann Arbor, Michigan. You can visit my galleries to discover many fine prints and other items, as well: Pixels, ArtPal, Society 6 and Redbubble. Thank you!

  • A Glass of Water

    After exhaustive travel in a hot, arid desert, a tall glass of cool water is certainly a welcomed sight…but, is it only a mirage? Probably, though it’s still better than a glass of sand.

    Contrary to such illusions, you may quench your thirst for some very cool gifts and apparel when you visit the following galleries…

  • Arctic Icebergs

    Arctic Icebergs

    You’d better turn the heat up, as this place is cold…brrr! Nevertheless, you can enjoy my digital artwork depicting icebergs in a frozen arctic sea, on a variety of gift and apparel items. Visit these galleries to see more…

  • Umbrella Under Glass

    An umbrella is useful when it’s raining outside – and, apparently, even when walking inside a giant, levitating glass sphere. You can stop by my galleries at Redbubble and Pixels to discover some really cool gifts and apparel items. Open 24/7 with a roof – so, no umbrella necessary. Hope to see you soon!

  • Nichols Arboretum

    Nichols Arboretum

    Following 10-inches of snow on New Years’ Eve 2007, I shot this morning photograph January 1, 2008 at Nichols Arboretum, in Ann Arbor, Michigan. That was then, and now it’s available in my shops at Pixels and Redbubble. You’ll discover prints and many other fine items available when you visit…

    Hope to see you soon!

  • Winter Waterfall

    Winter Waterfall

    Located on the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee, this photograph of Upper Potter’s Falls was taken soon after sunrise, with an outdoor temperature of only 20 degrees, and mist frozen on trees. Hanging from a tree is a knotted-rope swing, pushed forward slightly by winds generated from falling water. If you’d like to see more, many prints are available in my gallery at Fine Art America. Thanks for stopping by!

  • Frozen Tree

    Following successive days of rain, the water level on Crooked Fork was high. That, combined with a temperature of only 20-degrees fahrenheit, created a coating of ice from mist cast by the powerful 18-foot tall Upper Potter’s Falls. It also caused to me to ponder…how could I have forgotten my gloves, d’oh! Be that as it may, you can enjoy one of many prints available in the comfort of your home or office, when you visit my gallery. Thanks very much!

    Select from framed, wood, metal, art, poster, acrylic, canvas and tapestry. Prints are museum quality with a money back guarantee. Other items to choose, as well. Hope to see you soon!

    Abstract Glacier

    Top of the World

    Welcome to the North Pole, as depicted in my digital rendition of a colorful glacier reflecting sunlight. Actually, this fantasy landscape was created using a program called Bryce, by first importing a fractal design and then extruding it into three dimensional space.

    I’ve always enjoyed this image and hope you will, as well. A wide variety of cool products are available featuring my artwork, when you visit any of the following online shops:

    Note: if you’ve come to the North Pole looking for Santa Claus, it may be a while…it’s only January, after all.

    A torrent of winter snowflakes at night pelt a glowing lamp post. I shot this photograph several years ago at an area known as Red Bud Grove, in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
