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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Gentle Autumn Stream

This week’s photo – The Gentle Autumn Stream I used to get this overwhelming burden that I had to process and post all my pictures right after I took them – not anymore. I like to let my unprocessed files sit on my hard drive and let them become “ripe” almost like a nice little wine […]

An Afternoon at Aspen

This Week’s Photo – An Afternoon at Apsen I am already dreaming of fall days here in Colorado! I plan on taking a whole week off from “real work” to make it back up the Maroon Bells and then well, basically every nook and cranny of the Gunnison and Uncompahgre National Forest. I am sure […]

The Last Barn Standing

This Week’s Photo – The Last Barn Standing This little gem is only 5 minutes from where I live… and I don’t live anywhere near the country. Wild! Sadly, I don’t really know a whole heck of a lot about it. That’s something I love about Colorado. You can usually find some old barns only […]
