SCENES FROM MAGICAL PLACES

This collection is a retrospective of my landscape photography from the early nineties. Capturing images of the earth is an amazing art form, and hiking to remote areas to discover the perfect shot is highly rewarding. These photographs were shot with Nikon cameras on either Kodachrome or Velvia film. Click on any thumbnail image for a larger view in its true proportions.
