Shadowlands Between violent summer thunderstorms the sun breaks through to light the incredible landscapes of the Southwest. For me Shadowlands are these vast rugged areas that are illuminated by the resulting pools of light. I am drawn to this region year after year by the solitude I am able to find there in the midst of such beauty. Here the noise and confusion that accompanies Human presence fades away and life is reduced to its simplest components. These moments of clarity and serenity are becoming ever more fleeting in a world populated by 7 billion souls. My purpose with these images is to share some part of a powerful range of sensations that I am lucky enough to experience first hand.
