I began using a Canon PowerShot A-40 in December, 2002. . .prior to that I used an old Minolta XE-7 and SRT-101 and
even a disposable camera or two. Many of the photos in the photo album have been enhanced with Photoshop. Some of the photos were taken by my son, Derek.

Photos of Spring Creek near the Preserve.
June 14, 2003 Photos of old giants than have fallen due in the Preserve...this course woody
debris decays and recycles elements in the forest and streams. It also provides habitat for many
animal and fungi...if trees fall into streams, they provide fish and benthic invertebrate habitat.
And even more photos...
