about this site

Hello. Thanks for dropping by. My name is David Mantripp, and I’m the owner, manager and chief floor sweeper of this web site. I’ve been on the web since around 1997 if I remember correctly, which I rarely do this days.

Snowhenge is a little corner of the internet, tucked up a side street well out of the way of the heavy traffic. Few things in life are simple, and neither is Snowhenge. On the one hand, it tries to be a pretty much run of the mill photo gallery, like millions of others out there on those interwebs. On the other hand, it has to reflect the fact that its author has the attention span of a goldfish and sorry what was I saying ?  Oh yes: as far as I can remember this is the 5th version of Snowhenge, and just like its author, as it gets older it gets simpler and less interested in technical stuff. My first web page had some kind of animation of a decaying pear on it, for some reason. I can’t remember why. Snowhenge itself has been online since 2002, and it’s gone through quite a few incarnations since then. It exists mainly to showcase my photography, along with anything else I feel like at the time (but not cats. Never cats), and of course these days it also features a wildly popular award winning blog.

I hope you enjoy your visit, and please, do take it with a large pinch of salt.

I don’t really hate cats.

Oh, and following another typically obtuse decision, this site is hand made and runs on top of Expression Engine.
