Iola: from beneath the reservoir

The Colorado drought of 2018 has lowered the Blue mesa Reservoir by over 70 feet,exposing the old site of a lake submerged over 50 plus years ago.

Here are some photos from that spot.

Samples from Colorado: 2007-2017- Vita Institute

When I came to Colorado in 2007 , I did not realize I would be starting a new life and a new body of photography. 

In 2009 Don Seastrum formed the Vita Institute for the  Arts . 

This is a sample of the works I submitted for that site over the years.
