Welcome to my Gallery!

I hope you will enjoy some of the images I have presented here. My main focus is on bird photography although my photographic interests include all types of wildlife as well as landscapes. All of the images were taken in Southern Alberta, primarily the Medicine Hat/Cypress Hills region. This site is new and a work in progress so please stop by periodically as I will be adding new images.


For the best viewing, click on a Gallery and then select Slideshow, or to view a larger version of any individual image, click on it a second time after it has opened. Please sign the Guestbook and feel free to leave any comments or ask any questions.

Grandpa!

Love all your pictures of the birdies - they have recently become my favourite animal!! I love to look at them and see all the colours!

These are amazing! You should put together a calendar. It would make a great gift for your family members - hint, hint!

Proud to be your one and only neighbor. Would really like to tag along sometime.
Maybe teach me something about local birds and the photographing of them.
Congrats on your new website
