Welcome to Ayatana Photography

Ayatana is a Sanskrit word from Buddhism denoting the senses; our senses, and the sensory objects we experience.

Most of my images are shot in the Colorado Front Range area. Fort Collins’ natural areas and Rocky Mountain National Park are my favorite playgrounds.

Art is where we can experience the wonder and realism we so often “think” right through.

I hope my images might bring a sense of ease and joy, and be a reminder of our innate connection to the greater whole.

“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts…”
