This is a panoramic shot of the new Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium (formerly¬†Invesco Field) and the Denver skyline in the background. I wanted to get a shot of the stadium fireworks so me and […]

94th Floor, Hancock Tower

This Week’s Photo – 94th Floor, Hancock Tower What a view! Don’t be fooled – the best views of Chicago are not from the Sears (Willis) Tower but rather the Hancock Tower. They have an observation deck 94 floors up that has an incredible vantage point of the city. All that was left for me […]

Sunflower Dreams

This Week’s Photo: Sunflower Dreams Epic sunflower field out by Denver International Airport in Colorado. It was a helluva evening and sunset. I was out there with some other local photogs and well all went crazy when this thunderhead rolled over the mountains and produced some spectacular cloud formations and colors. These sunflower fields are […]

Sports Authority Field at Mile High

This Week’s Photo – Farewell Invesco Field Sports Authority Field at Mile High… doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue does it? I guess that’s what Bronco fans and the public had¬†originally said about “Invesco Field at Mile High” instead of simply, “Mile High Stadium.” It will take a season or two but I’m sure we […]

Snake River Overlook

This Week’s Photo – Snake River Overlook Many photographers have made the pilgrimage to Snake River Overlook at Grand Tetons National Park – the same view Ansel Adams made famous some 70 years ago. This was my first and only time and it was absolutely amazing. There was another photographer at the same location that […]

The House that Stood Still

This Week’s Photo – The House that Stood Still Overcast, dreary skies might scare some people away but I love em’. They can create a striking atmosphere if your subject plays well off the flat lighting and gray skies. I came across this long forgotten barn and had to capture it one afternoon. This house […]

An Army of Aspens

This Week’s Photo – An Army of Aspens Composing these kind of shots can be quite the challenge! Or at least it is for me anyway. It always look so amazing in person, but its hard to create harmony from the chaos. I was pleased about how I set up for this shot. The focal […]

Maroon Bells Sunrise

This Week’s Photo – The Morning Bells Could you believe that I was the only person here to see this in person? I couldn’t either! At the Maroon Bells no less! Last time I was here was for the fall colors and there was at least three dozen other photographers squeezed in between one another. […]

The Sunrise at Dream Lake

This Week’s Photo – The Sunrise at Dream Lake This is one of those pictures I will only attempt once a year. It took a herculean effort to stay up all night, leave my place at 1:15 a.m., bang out a sleepless 3 hour drive to RMNP, and then hike another hour in the complete […]

The Wildflowers of Boulder

This Week’s Photo – The Wildflowers of Boulder I took an exhausting three straight weekends of waking up at 3 am and then making the hour drive down to Boulder for sunrise. Unfortunately, the wildflowers near the Flatirons weren’t as strong as I was anticipating. In fact, there really weren’t any flowers of any kind […]
