My passion is outdoor art photography with a main concentration dealing with landscapes, sunrises, sunsets, and Mother Nature activity. In each artwork I try to relate a certain feeling or beauty at that precise moment. I also pay attention to many details as I am taking and processing the photo.

Visit the images at the link and I hope you enjoy them as much as I did taking and processing them. You can see my most popular photos at Canon Shooter on Facebook If you have any questions please contact me on FlickrMail. Remember all photography is copyrighted so please respect the Copyright.

Originally called "Emmettville," it was primarily a post office named after Emmett Cahalan, the son of Tom Cahalan, an early settler of the area. The post office was later moved but retained the name. A few years later the "ville" was dropped and the post office and town became simply Emmett. In 1883 James Wardwell had the town platted, and in 1900 the town was incorporated as Emmett. Later, in March 1902, the Idaho Northern railroad came to the valley. (Wikipedia )

 

Emmett, a city of about 6,500, lies along the southern banks of the Payette River in west-central Idaho. Gold discoveries in the nearby Boise Basin brought miners and other settlers to the area, which was the site of a ferry crossing in the 1860s. Today, Emmett sits at the heart of the agriculturally rich Treasure Valley, center of Idahos cherry-growing business. Familiarity with Emmetts landmarks will help you make the most of your visit to the area. (USA Today)
