David J. West's Photography

Michael and I met a remarkable photographer in Springdale, UT just outside of Zion National Park and his name is David J. West. For three years we have been following his work and we look forward to visiting him when we travel there.

The pieces in his gallery take your breath away, and it is a very popular gallery with people waiting to buy things when you arrive, and then of course we did too. When we left, the people before us were headed back in, and of course we couldn't decide so we walked out with two prints, so I totally get them. He has a website and also sells his fine art photography online. There you will see the splendor, but it is in having the large pieces before you that you can really feel the magic. Here is the link to his website The website is interactive and it's kind of fun to try to choose the photos you would like to view. It made me laugh because it is unpredictable. We also signed up for David's newsletter.

David and his wife also have a blog, so please enjoy the sites and let him know you appreciate fine art and his spectacular pieces!
Thanks for visiting! To all of my gardening friends, carry on and hurry back!


  1. Loved the photos in your post. Laura, I'd love to hear more about the moon software you use. Do you use it only for seeds? Do you follow all her other directions, like watering, pruning, etc? You seem to like it. How else do you use it? Any other experiences you have had will be greatly appreciated as I'm still experimenting with all this. Thanks so much. You can comment on my site or send me an e-mail. The address is on my about me page.

  2. These are jaw-dropping gorgeous photos. So cool to 'know' the artist and support his work...what are your two pieces like? His website IS fun! Thanks for the link.

  3. Lynn, Both of the pieces have flowers. I have one similar to the one with the datura in the foreground, excent it is with purple asters. I couldn't find it on the site. (I love the datura one. It was our 3rd choice.)The other is the flower meadow with red flowers in the foreground, red in the mid ground, and red on the top of the mountain in the distance.
