My name is Michael Speed. I come from a far away place known as Big Sky Country, or, Montana. One day, just after boarding a connecting flight from Charlotte to Maine on my way to photograph Acadia National Park, a pretty girl named Ashley sat next to me. She was from Virginia. One thing led to another, and now I live in Virginia and she is Mrs. Speed.

Living in and learning the Virginia landscape has been a welcome challenge over the last few years. The diversity of this region is a dream for nature photographers like myself.
