About Riel Photography

I am a California native who lives in Davis California with my husband Jeff.  I was privileged to work for UC Davis’ School of Veterinary Medicine for most of my career.  I worked a hectic schedule in a clinical environment.  As such photography provided me with an opportunity to express my creative side and share my love of travel with others.   Travel has always been a priority in our lives, and we hope to travel more extensively into our retirement years.

I enjoy taking the back roads to smaller towns and villages of Europe.  I am particularly attracted to the patinas of old stone structures, cobbled streets and faded wooden buildings.   My photography has been recognized for its symmetry, balance, and vivid color.  I am drawn to more intimate images, one that draws your eye to an interesting focal point or a dramatic dash of color.

Thank you for visiting my galleries.
