1. Wrinkles in the Landscape: Moab

    The deep wrinkles on the sandstone of the Utah desert warm and humanize the barren scene as we reach approach Moab.

     
  2. Treasures Revealed

    On those days that we wander the country over a thick blanket of cloud and yearn for a clearing in which to catch a momentary point of reference on the earth, our patience is sometimes rewarded as the clouds part and grant us a private vista and the most stunning treasures are revealed.

     
  3. Havasupai Vision

    Lingering over the Havasupai Reservation, we look across the Grand Canyon toward the North Rim…The color and depth of the scene blur together into a dreamlike vision that remains in our memories like a misty emotion-filled sunset…abstract and indistinct yet unforgettable.

  5. Consumed by the Advancing Night

    Night overtakes the storm 1

    Looking eastward into the advancing night, the terminator approaches from the horizon. The last light of sunset illuminates a solitary stormy cluster.

    Night overtakes the storm 2

    Nearing the storm, the illuminated mass shrinks as the earth’s shadow grows and the terminator approaches.

    Night overtakes the storm 3

    The terminator gradually overtakes us and the night consumes the storm as the last small sliver of sunlight vanishes.

  6. Dawn in the Catskills

    Rushing to escape the city before first light, we find ourselves rounding the Catskill Mountains as dawn breaks over the aerial horizon.

    American Reflections at DFW

    We are reflected in our work…and so is the world around us. Safe travels.

     
  8. Night Light in the Desert

    September 11th always sets me off in a dark somber mood as I remember waking up in LA that morning in stunned horror and that confused hole-in-my-gut feeling that comes from losing people, coworkers and strangers that we should have known better…or that we feel guilty for not having known at all…and whose spirits now float like heavy smoke on the landscape of our memories.

     
  9. Kansas’ Whimsied Skies

    The whimsied rainbow sherbet colored skies of youthful summer memories surround us and command us to daydream as though we were kids again.

     
  10. Escalante Moonlight

    Moonlight illuminates the landscape in eerily muted tones as we turn toward the Escalante National Monument. Scanning the landscape with an afocal gaze, the rods of our eyes detect the contours of earth as the motion of the aircraft cues our senses to the details of the landscape hidden in darkness.

     
  11. Grace Beyond Noise

    There is a grace to the landscape that has the ability to relax and sooth even the busiest of travelers as it strips away the noise of the day, carrying it off to a distant horizon in one single great exhalation.

     
  12. Dispersed in Indigo

    As the indigo of night consumes the landscape over Oklahoma and the light recedes to a narrow curve of twilight on the aerial horizon, the energy of the day dissipates and the towering clouds twist and disperse into the fluid night.

     
  13. Broken Lattice

    In the Everglades, the twisted lines of earth that encircle Gate Bay and creep slowly into the Gulf of Mexico appear as if some grand failed latticework…broken by the ebb and flow of tides yet still possessing of a beautiful delicate quality.

     
  14. Into the Face of the Storm

    As many of us enjoy the holiday and relax with our family and friends, there are many others among us who fly into the face of the storm each day…They labor and toil in their professions to ensure that the engine of our economy keeps running even when the nation takes a day off to go to the beach.
