This gallery represents two bodies of work done of the same subject, the first is a series done
in during the period 1984-1988. The second, on one day in April of 2003. The first was done

Then in April of 2003, on a trip south from Portland, I drove through the Sacramento Valley on a
day when a storm was clearing and the light, the sky and the clouds were stunning. I was diving past
my old friends the grain elevators, I had my camera, I had the time and I went to work. The results
are shown here.
Below is a selection from both groups of photographs.
