Hatched From Tree Creations
urrently, I am located in Pahrump, Nevada. I am attending college in hopes of attaining an AA in Geosciences. Nature photography is what I do best when it comes to art, but I occasionally like to do other things like crochet.

I love photographing the Mojave Desert (in which I live), due to its hidden beauty that many just do not see. It makes my day when I receive comments from people who have never experienced a desert, exclaiming how they wish they could visit the sights I photograph, which are practically in my backyard.

My recent photos are taken with the camera featured in my profile pic (GE X500). No, it is not a DSLR but is rather a full featured non-DSLR. It's a like a mid point between a point-and-shoot (compact) camera and a DSLR. I am slowly mastering all of the the manual settings and learning to edit like a pro. One day, I will get me one of the shmancy, fancy DSLR's but for now I am happy with what I have.

Yerba Mansa II
These flowers are usually white, and unattractive (in my opinion) but in the summer and fall they turn a beautiful red and loose their petals. Photo taken at Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge in Amargosa Valley, Nevada.As always, questions, comments, and critiques are welcome.
