Gary lives with his wife Marty on Green Lake, near Chisago City, on land that his great grandparents farmed beginning in 1870. Gary and Marty recently lived near Interstate Park in St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin - just a few minutes from the Dalles of the St. Croix. Hence the many photos, in all seasons and weather conditions, of perhaps the most beautiful segment of the St. Croix River. Gary served on the Board of Directors of the St. Croix River Association for 8 years; many of his photos are found in their publications and on their website.
Nature photography is Gary’s focus. The stunning images on this site have been taken in and around the St. Croix River, Lake Superior’s North Shore, the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, and many national parks (Yosemite, Bryce, Arches, Zion, Capitol Reef, the Black Canyon of the Gunnison, and Corcovado National Park in Costa Rica). Craig Blacklock http://www.blacklockgallery.com/ and Gary Alan Nelson http://www.garyalannelson.com/ are a few of the landscape photographers from whom Gary has taken courses to further hone his outdoor photography skills.
