Janele Husband

After retiring from a career as an elementary teacher, I am enjoying my lifelong hobby of photography full-time. Craig, Colorado has been my home since 1982. Northwest Colorado provides a plethora of places and opportunities for capturing amazing shots. Three of my landscape images are part of the Colorado Northwestern Community College Permanent Art Collection at the Craig campus. Though wildlife and landscape have been my focus for many years, I continue to grow and expand my repertoire as a photographer. In recent years, I have become drawn to the beauty of abstract formations in nature, often fleeting, seldom seen. My portfolio reflects a growing number of my attempts to capture the art of abstract photography. My preference is natural setting, light and color, and being in the field experiencing the great outdoors — not on the computer in an editing program. I shoot digital images of whatever I see, wherever I go . . . nature, wildlife, people, architecture, moments in time. My goal is that my images will stimulate an emotional feeling in those who experience them. I hope you enjoy my photographs as much as I enjoyed creating them.
