About Me

Shagbark Hickory, opening leaf and flower bud.

Welcome to Closer Views - my photographic invitation to slow down and soak in all the wonder and beauty that surrounds us.

I’ve been involved in many aspects of photography over the last 35+ years, but my favorite ‘therapy’ is macro (or close-up) photography. I get lost - and recharged - in the wonder and beauty the camera reveals.

The beauty of nature has always been a source of hope and inspiration to us: creation reconnects us to our Creator. When we take the time to wonder at the beauty of things we so often overlook and dwell on the care and foresight that goes into creating and sustaining even the most ‘insignificant’ of creations, we are led to a better understanding of our own value ... and the care God has for each of us.

Thank you for taking the time to slow down and view my pictures. I enjoy sharing them with you ...and hope they help you soak in the wonder, beauty and blessings all around you today.
