Wells Horton (wells-horton)

Home is in central upstate New York. Latest project is Photo a Day. Share a photo everyday which was taken on that day. It is pushing me to take a second look at things. Landscapes, waterfalls, friends, and family are my photographic challenges. Photography is a passion since all to long ago in high school. For most of my working life large format photography was my goal, yet the past 12 years in digital photography has me thinking differently. Learning and growing with a camera.
