Welcome to Up Close With Mother Nature, the Web home of my Photo Art collection featuring dramatic California landscapes, soothing Pacific seascapes, photogenic birds and critters, exotic flora, and eye-catching outdoor miscellany. Along with my journalism background, my outdoor photography archives date back to the late 1980s. All these years later, I am still captivated by Mother Nature in her many stunning forms. She is a constant wonder!
I frequently add new images to my galleries, which offer a variety of print options. Please bookmark my site as a source for special gifts and for additions to your home and business decor. Many of my wildlife images are also perfect for the rooms of nature-loving children.
All images are available as framed and unframed prints, stretched canvas prints, dramatic metal prints and acrylics, many up to poster size. Distinctive 5x7 blank greeting cards - offered as an option with certain images - can be purchased singly and in boxed packs. ALL ITEMS COME WITH A 30-DAY SATISFACTION GUARANTEE.
Please use the email link on this page for photo licensing information or to contact me regarding freelance writing and/or photography assignments. Also, please note the watermark you see on my images does NOT appear on any prints.
