Naturescapes by Doug Coombs is a solo photography exhibition that invites the viewer to glimpse stunning landscapes and unique animal encounters.  On display at Village Arts through Nov. 13, Doug’s work promises to take you across the country, and around the globe, and with his emphasis on the big skies of the west and his Milky Way photography, there’s a chance that he’ll even transport you across the universe!

Doug’s own journey with photography as a medium began as a teen with film based photography. In the early eighties he photographed sports at the University of Arizona, where he worked as a darkroom tech and photographer. Later when his kids played soccer for Los Alamos High School he avidly photographed their matches.

Doug is a retired software engineer/developer from Los Alamos National Laboratory and has been doing digital photography for over 20 years. He lived in Los Alamos for 35 years where he  co-chaired and chaired the Los Alamos Photography Club and the Los Alamos Adobe Users Group.  Doug currently resides in Pagosa Springs where he is an active member of the Pagosa Springs Photography Club, but continues to actively show his work in Los Alamos.  Doug and his wife Miyuki travel to destinations nationally and internationally on a regular basis to pursue photographic opportunities. Destinations include Africa, Brazil, Alaska, Yellowstone National Park, Teton National Park, Bisti Badlands, Arches National Park, Bosque del Apache NM, New Mexico, Colorado and more.

Village Arts is open 9-4 Monday through Friday and 10-4 Saturday and is located at 216 DP Road.  For more information on Doug’s work and to see more of his photography, find him on Facebook and Instagram and at his website  Doug also has a broad selection of framed and matted work available at the Fuller Lodge Art Center.
