Welcome to the SchmidtHouse. My name is Rick Schmidt, my wife Holly and I live in Perry Hall, which is northeast of Baltimore, Maryland.

In January 2007, with the kids grown and a bit of time to wander around, I bought a digital camera (Nikon D50) and began to experience a hobby I hadn't had time for in many years. Landscape and nature photography give me the opportunity to explore and absorb the beauty and majesty nearby in this wondrous world of ours.

I hope you enjoy some of the images I have been blessed to be able to record. Please give me your comments. I will appreciate any feedback and ideas you have to improve my photographs and this website.
