I am a avid outdoors person and love getting out in the woods, on the trails and on the lakes to explore all the outdoor and nature opportunities during Minnesota's four seasoons. I enjoy sharing the nature photos I have been able to take with others. My greatest photo challenge is to try to get to places that others are not likely to get to or to try to find a unique photo opportunity in common places. I am a licensed social worker of over 18 years and find getting out to take photos a great break and a chance to recharge so I can help people during the work week again.
