Goodbye Mom

Autumn has left and winter has arrived here in Zion Canyon. This past month  has been a hectic one for my family and I, being that my mother passed away on November 13th. I recently returned from New Jersey after mourning her loss with my family and friends. MJ, Arielle, and I spent half of November with my mom during some of her last days. She was 61, nothing puts life back into perspective like funerals and the loss of a loved one. My mom was a simple and strong woman, her life was all about her 5 children and 3 grandchildren and taking care of my Father who has been paralyzed for the past seven years. Lately, I've been seeing her smile at me through the freshly fallen snow and color in the morning and evening skies.


Sunday, December 12 we will be having a Gallery Party between the hours of 4-8pm. Please join us for good company and beautiful art. I will be releasing 2 new images. As winter settles in we would like to wish everyone a safe and Happy Holiday Season.

Kindest regards from Zion Canyon, David, MJ, Arielle, and of course Charlie Brown.


Highly Honored Natures Best Photography Magazine

From over 20000 images entered, "Morning Has Broken" was chosen to be one of only several highly honored images in the Landscape category and will be published in the latest edition of Nature's Best Photography Magazine.

 Mt. Timpanogos wilderness area located in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah, is one of my favorite places to photograph wildflowers. This particular morning while camping with MJ and Charlie we awoke to what I thought was going to be a boring sky. Thankfully I was wrong, and surprised when the clouds began to glow with color.
