Oregon Tree

Sequoia From Base


In honor of site that has directed most of the visitors to this site, I have prepared the following picture of an oil rig. I used to be in the picture; using my imaging skills, I have removed all traces of myself. Difference clouds, a Photoshop filter, has been applied. However, you have to email me to get the picture. It should only take a few minutes or hours at the most before you recieve the secret location of this image. IT IS, HOWEVER, ABSOLUTELY FREE!


I have several ALASKAN SUNSETS lined up for use, but there have been problems with the resolution of the slide scanning. I also have some pictures from GOBLIN VALLEY, UTAH (very interesting rock formations), and incredible THUNDERSTORM PICTURES! Come back often; these astonishing pics will be up, hopefully, within a few weeks!
