Simple structures, whose beauty is more difficult to find in the surrounding landscape interest me. The subtle intrusion into the landscape such as stone cracked by freezing and thawing due to exposure to the elements, simple pole lines breaking a simple horizon line with almost indistinguishable tonal qualities, or a red stripe from a tractor parked on the roadside are images that inspire me but it is the the landscape that endures, it is the landscape that remains in control.
