Signing & packing day! This is still one of my favorites to print. I use pigment inks and archival matte paper to print, which matches the vibrant colors of the original piece and mimics the texture of chalkboard. 🖤
All orders go straight back into helping run the shop! Ink is SO expensive. So thank you for keeping it going! 😅
Enjoy this incredible footage of the blue hole in Belize - a giant marine sinkhole that has amazing geologic formations due to the fact that it was once above water!! •
“Fresh beauty opens one's eyes wherever it is really seen, but the very abundance and completeness of the common beauty that besets our steps prevents its being absorbed and appreciated. It is a good thing, therefore, to make short excursions now and then to the bottom of the sea among dulse and coral, or up among the clouds on mountain-tops, or in balloons, or even to creep like worms into dark holes and caverns underground, not only to learn something of what is going on in those out-of-the-way places, but to see better what the sun sees on our return to common everyday beauty.” -John Muir
This quotation seems to sum up how I have been feeling since returning home from expedition where I spent hours in the submersible exploring new places at the bottom of the sea and then ended on top of a Mayan Temple in the jungle. It was a contrast of two very different yet also very sacred places. Here is a video clip I shot while in the Idabel submarine diving the Blue Hole last week. Sometimes we need to experience the extreme to see the beauty all around us. .
“Another glorious Sierra day in which one seems to be dissolved and absorbed and sent pulsing onward we know not where. Life seems neither long nor short, and we take no more heed to save time or make haste than do the trees and stars. This is true freedom, a good practical sort of immortality.” John Muir - the naturalist that helped draw up the proposed boundaries of Yosemite National Park and co-founded the Sierra Club in 1892 to protect it.

The one of only a few captured while juggling my boys in waist deep snow on a hunt for the perfect tree. ~~~
My youngest was resting in a bed of snow and I managed to slip off my glove and take a look around as my husband and eldest sawed away. It took but a single moment to look up and notice this gathering of nests within this dying pine. ~~~
What an amazing story there, with the sun shining bright from behind the tiny community. One day the tree will fall, will the birds know when to flee? Perhaps so.

I believe this must be one of the most famous views of any national park in our beautiful country. Here I felt tirelessly like an Ansel Adams wanna be. I’m sure many photographers who step on this land feel the same. Its history as rich as the soil, its protectors as tender as the trees who grow from it. I would love one day to be as talented as Ansel and equally as influential. It’s not likely a man can dwell here and not be enlightened to do good and to be good. “A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed” - Ansel Adams
