I love photographing wildlife and nature scenics. Sometimes those photo warrant black and white and sometimes they demand color. (Please see more text below)
Perhaps due to my background in photojournalism I also strive to get people in my photos whenever possible to add a human element to an image and give perspective to the rest of the scene.
I am often puzzled by nature photography contests that disqualify entries that include “the hand of man” in the photo. Sure most nature scenes are fine on their own with out any humans involved (other than the photographer of course) but sometimes injecting the human element can even make nature appear even more magnificent.

I shot this photo of a person walking a dog in the snow a few years ago near Deep Creek Lake. It meets most of my goals for an interesting picture but what I liked the most about the final result was color is fairly subtle.
I think sometimes people believe a color photo or painting must be full of brilliance and over saturated but often by just using a little hue there, a little dab of red here can have a much greater impact.
