Ruth Weston has been strongly influenced by traveling to some of the most beautiful national parks this country has to offer. She recalls one particular opportunity, she describes as “blissful”, to visit Bryce and Zion National Parks in Utah. “The scenery was truly spectacular, and set me on a course toward improving my photography as an art.”

With that one visit in July of 1999, Ruth became a lover of landscape and nature scenes. “I was bitten by the ‘love bug’ of traveling to National Parks,” she explains. “Shenandoah National Park, located in Luray, Virginia, is a favorite of mine.”

The first camera that Ruth experimented with was a Minolta film camera. She later transitioned to the Canon 5D and has since been happily creating her images in the digital medium.
