Nature photography combines three of my passions: creativity, traveling and hiking. While I love journeying to faraway places and shooting storied sites (the cloud forests of Costa Rica, sunrise in the Grand Tetons, etc.), I get as much pleasure shooting more prosaic local sites (Blackwater Wildlife Refuge on the Eastern Shore, Lake Artemesia in Berwyn Heights, etc.). I've found there is beauty to be found in all of nature, if you look close enough. More of my photography can be found at www.petepphotography.com.
