Welcome to my new web site: a continuing update

I am a retired US Navy photographer with over 30 years of active duty and have continued my search for photos since retiring in 1993. I live in Everett, WA, just 25 miles north of Seattle and am blessed with the time and scenery to find an abundance of photographic opportunities. I love being able to photograph raptors and other wildlife within  short drives from home plus having gorgeous tulip fields less than 30 miles away. The mountains and the ocean are less than 2 hours each way but on clear days, the views of the mountains are fantastic. Now, as I get older, the most photographic bunch I am around are my 3 wonderful grandchildren who keep me busy with the many activities they each are involved in.
