• Goodbye, Farewell and Goodnight

    Krahnpix was always an odd combination of wildlife photos and my eclectic version of wit. I’m pretty sure I was the biggest fan. I suppose that was a natural outcome of pouring my heart and soul into a project. Through good times and bad, I passionately chased wildlife, learned a few tricks of the trade… Continue Reading

  • Add Mountain and Stir!

    Capturing the grandeur of a beautiful vista is a huge challenge. Add in the improbable size of a mountain and the task seems insurmountable.

Well actually, I take photos of a… Continue Reading

  • Name a mountain? No problem!

    Mount Krahn. I do like the sound of that. This whole mountain naming thing started simple enough with a posse of my pre-teen prairie cousins. We got lured into climbing up to the next ridge when visiting relatives in British Columbia. Inspired by the view, we decided to scale the modest mountain and claim it… Continue Reading
