Dan “Shutterbug” Wells is a landscape photographer, long-distance hiker, writer and student at Harvard Divinity School, studying spirituality and the natural world. His goal is to combine spirit, art and ecology of a strongly Universalist ministry of the natural world.

Dan Wells is a long-time lecturer in photography and ecology at the University of Vermont. Dan is also a forest ecologist who was the first to identify the patch of Vermont old-growth forest featured in the framed image to be raffled off at the reception. He is a resident of Cambridge, MA, sojourner of the Pacific Crest Trail, and a parishioner at First Parish Church (Unitarian Universalist) in Harvard Square.

Hopefully, these images will give all a sense of the awesome beauty and majesty of spirit to be found in the world we all inhabit.

A special thanks to Hunt’s Photo & Video for helping out with the costs of printing the three large images and to The Red House contributing fresh chilled oysters and more.
