Light from Above
The light streams from above Upper Antelope Canyon and paints the colors on the walls blazing orange.

I've always enjoyed photography, taking pictures of my family, friends and travel with my point and shoot camera. In the late 90's I bought my first SLR camera and signed up for a workshop in Door County Wisconsin. After that I took a class at the community college and learned black and white photography working in the darkroom. Then after a week long workshop in the upper peninsula of Michigan near Munising the following October, I was hooked!
I joined a local camera club, won a few awards becoming more confident in my skills. After retirment my husband and I started spending our winters in Mesa Arizona where I became an active member of the Saguaro Camera Club, going out on shoots, sharing and judging other members photos. www.saguarocameraclub.com.
I also started a camera club at our resort in Mesa, chaired the annual photo contest, and teach classes in photography and Photoshop Elements.
We spend our summers Wisconsin, winters in Arizona, always on the lookout for the perfect photo-op. Check out my Wisconsin images on www.capturedoorcounty.com
