I am very fond of columbines in all colors. These golden ones grow profusely by Zion's lower Emerald Pool, and I was fortunate enough to get terrific light and setup for the bottom picture. I have a hard time identifying some flowers, but Aquilegia chrysantha is an easy one to spot.
I am a keen amateur photographer, an avid traveler, a dedicated researcher. My main area of interest is the European middle ages although I like history and culture, especially social history, of all eras and regions. I am especially fond of good architecture and I am really, really fond of reptiles.
I usually post this blog to share highlights from my travels with family and friends. If you are a potential friend wandering by, you are welcome; any of my art or nature images posted here are available for non profit personal or study use, and if reproduced I ask that I be credited as photographer.
