.NaturesPix is the trade name for the personal nature and outdoor photography by Doug and Ellen Smith and nature theme quilts, quilted note cards and art quilts by Ellen Smith. Many of the photographic and quilted products are the results of their nationwide and international travel, with a special focus on travel in the American West and American National Park system.
A professional photographer once said that the difference between an amateur and a professional is that the amateur is smiling. Doug definitely smiles when he takes photographs. Travel adventures are a means and an end in themselves ... journeying into national parks, the tops of mountains, bottoms of canyons and along remote trails ... surrounded by the majesty and beauty of nature, photographs are a by-product and a means of capturing and sharing wonderful memories.
Photographic travel logs of many of this lifetime of adventures can be viewed at Olfarts.org and Youtube/NaturesPix.
