My wife and I have had the good fortune to have been able to retire early from our position as corporate executives and pursue our hobbies of horticulture, hiking, traveling and photography. We are actively involved with the Native Plant Society of Napa, a collection of friendly enthusiasts who love the outdoors and are endlessly up for a good hike while searching out rare specimens be it bird or plant.
Plant identification is made by a number of experts including my wife who has done graduate work in horticulture.
I have been photographing since high school. My current cameras of choice are a Canon A710 for it's close up abilities and a Nikon D40 for it's speed and lightweight versatility.
We enjoy our hobbies and are always looking for ways to
contribute to the appreciation of our land, parks and environment. Should
you have some projects we can help with using our skills, please
For worthy projects in the public interest we will donate our time. For
other projects we may ask a modest sum to cover expenses. All our photo's
are copyrighted and coded, and we check regularly for unauthorized copies
online. Should you want one, please email and most likely we will let you
have one for free.
Any suggestions concerning our site would be most
appreciated, as we are constantly striving to make it better.
