I am amateur photographer and nature enthusiast Joe DuChene, and this is my personal website. My goal is to promote The Great Swamp Conservancy of which I am a member. Please visit their official sites linked here on the blogroll. Better yet come hike the conservancys east side trail system, it's what I enjoy and where all these images were captured.
