It's been several months since my last journal and some of you may be wondering what I've been up to. Well between my firefighting, home life, and photography, I've been quite busy... for the most part traveling around various areas of my own province living in basecamp or on the fire line. I just returned from a week in British Columbia (western Canada) where we lent a hand with the fire situation out there.
I've been lucky enough to have had some time to explore with my camera as well.. from the canyons north of Nipigon to the beautiful lakes of Quetico... and just recently the Rocky Mountain rivers near Nakusp, B.C. When I'm on the road I take advantage of any internet connection I can find to upload pics to my dA gallery from my trusty memory stick
You are all aware that for the past 4 months I have had the commenting feature disabled for my photos. I only did this because of time constraints and the inability to reply to the comments. (that always leaves me feeling guilty). Well I've decided to enable the commenting feature again in hopes that I can find some time to reply as fire season winds down. I'll also be restoring my 'featured artists' and 'Recent WOWs' section to my journal next month.
Some contest news also: The very talented ~Inebriantia
has asked me to sit on the panel of judges for his ongoing 'Earth' photography contest. Read all about it here: 'EARTH' photography contest

have contacted me and asked if I could put together some stock images for the highly respected stock group #resurgere
. I'm very honored by this and will be working on that soon.
About a month ago I recieved my 5th Daily Deviation! The piece concerned was one of my conceptual portraits and not a nature shot. This made it extra special for me
The other thing I must take care of here at dA is my message box which can be summed up by saying 'The cup overfloweth'
I was planning to get around to all who had faved my work this summer, but considering the 23,674 visits I'd have to make, let me just shout a BIG thanks to everyone for all your support!
... especially those who have just recently added me or purchased my prints
When I have some lounging time I plan to drink in all the wonderful art piling up in my message box as well ... currently 2,804 deviations behind ... can't wait to check that beautiful art out!
Anyway, you all take of yourselves ok? I'll be kicking around dA more and more frequently as winter approaches and look forward to revisiting with all of you.
