"I almost never set out to photograph a landscape nor do I think of my camera as a means of recording a mountain or animal unless I absolutely need a 'record shot.' My first thought is always of light"
--Galen Rowell


In addition to subject and composition, the light frequently adds additional drama and impact to an image. These are photographs that I made because of the light. It is the light that makes interesting photographs of these subjects, some of which are otherwise rather mundane.
