I am an amateur photographer from San Francisco, California. I have wide-ranging interests in photography, but my passions are stormscapes and landscapes. I am happiest when I am on a mountain trail with my dog and camera, or following a storm as it twists and turns over farmland. To me, photography is poetry without words: pixels instead of letters capture a moment, an emotion, or the wordless beauty of nature. I love studying the work of other photographers, their way of seeing and how they express their point of view. The 1X community is a wonderful space for photographers to learn or to simply enjoy the world through the eyes of others.
