- "If there was no bad weather,
there would be no clouds and no gales,
No rain and no snow.
If there is one time more than another
when the country smiles the most, it is during rain."
-- Raymond Moore.

John Kudlacz approach to nature photography combines elements of flat graphic treatment and art photography. The unique perspective of John's photos are a result of his interesting use of light to create visually provocative photos that capture the essence of mother nature in her splendid bloom. Notice the strong influence of classic painter's lighting and composition. Through the lens of John's camera, we take a journey through the majestic mountains of California and Nevada, experiencing breath-taking waterfalls, awe-inspiring scenery as well as the many natural dynamics of nature in all her glory.
