About Nature-Pics

Nature-Pics is the outlet for nature photographs taken primarily by Royce Shofner, an avid outdoor enthusiast and shutterbug for over 50 years. Many of the photos were taken while hiking, camping, canoeing, caving, etc for personal pleasure. More recent photos however, have been taken explicitly for publication on this web site. If we don't have the image you want, let us know, and perhaps we can get it for you.

The Nature-Pics web site is currently under construction, but please feel free to browse the images Slides on our web site as they are posted. We are busy creating the thumbnails and slide shows for currently available digital images, and converting older 35mm slides into additional digital images. We also are continuing to add new images to the collection. Please be patient, it will be worth the wait.

Nature-Pics shares facilities with an affiliated company, Digital Control Systems (who will soon be publishing screen savers using Nature-Pics images), so don't be suprised if the telephone is answered "Digital Control Systems (or DCS Enterprises), may I help you?".
