Thank you, and welcome to my photo website. I am a hobbyist who likes to get out once and a while and take some pictures. Colorado has offered many opportunites and great subjects, but now I'm exploring Alabama. I like my Pentax (K1-II), and I use a variety of lenses, again mostly Pentax. I use Lightroom and Photoshop on my Mac for post-processing, however I try to take the best photo I can with the camera and keep the digital editing to a minimum (cropping notwithstanding). Please enjoy browsing my work.
The Huntsville Botanical Gardens has this great butterfly pavilion, complete with a stream, turtles, and small creatures to help take care of the bad bugs. In the early Summer, they release butterflies into the Pavilion. It's a great time to take photographs. There are many different varieties, and they are quite friendly. While snapping photos, I had butterflies landing on me and my camera. Most of these photos were taken using my Pentax D FA 100mm F2.8 Macro prime lens and my Pentax K1 II body. Here's the Butterfly gallery.
16 Nov 2012. I went to Penrose House near the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs for a lunchtime photo shoot. I was testing out my Sigma 150-500mm zoom lens. I took over 200 shots, but here are a few that I like.
