Welcome to the Images in the Backcountry website! My name is Mike Matenkosky and I'm a Central Valley California photographer specializing in fine art landscape, nature, wildlife, black & white and inspirational photography. From the smallest bird to the largest mountain; I love it all, but my passion is Landscape Photography. I just love seeing what God has created!
I encourage you to spend some time browsing my online galleries and I hope you find that perfect photograph for your home or office. If you're looking for something that you don't see here, visit my nature photography blog. I post all of my new pictures here first, and some of those images never get posted to my online nature gallery. So I encourage you to subscribe to my blog with updates and new pictures via e-mail.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me and I'll be happy to help you!

In my inspirational nature gallery, you will find Bible verses overlaid on selected nature and landscape pictures. You can always find a picture from one of my galleries and I can add your favorite Bible verse to it at no extra charge.
