Operating a gallery is a dream of mine. I have a number of ideas of for design and layout for a physical gallery, and there are few thing that would make me happier than to run a gallery in Estes Park, Colorado.
However, at this current time in life I do not find myself in the beautiful Rocky Mountains all year. I travel extensively around the U.S. and around the world. A gallery to show off artwork would not be viable because the constraints in place because of my travel.
I still continue to spend a good amount of time in Rocky Mountain National Park, hiking, making friends, and creating images, and in the future a gallery is where I would like to be.
I still have a strong desire to share photography of the mountains and nature, and right now the internet is the best way to do it.
Having a gallery online also allows me to add commentary to images tell stories and provide instruction for other photographers.
