Landscapes of the Davis Mountains

Books Now Available on Blurb

I have moved my book sales to Blurb and my previous two books, Hill Country Landscapes, released in 2009 and Landscapes of the Texas Plains & Canyons, released in 2010, can now be purchased directly from their web site, along with my latest book, Landscapes of the Davis Mountains.

My love affair with the Davis Mountains began with a short trip to the area in 2011 to cover the recent wildfires that ravaged the region. This seemingly random event opened my eyes to one of the most beautiful and majestic regions in our state and an area that calls to me like a bee to honey.

Join me as I explore the rugged outback of the Davis Mountains and surrounding area with its rich history and unique geology and geography. From the verdant plains to the highest peaks, it’s a region like no other.

Steep Ridge – Guadalupe Mountains National Park, Texas

There’s something very powerful, almost spiritual, about standing at the base of the tallest peak in Texas. I took this shot from the base of Guadalupe Peak at the entrance to Bone Canyon. Standing at 5200 ft, you’d never guess the peak was more than 3000 feet higher.

Man, what a view!
