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 […]

Maroon Bells Sunrise

Oxbow’s Bend

This Week’s Image – Oxbow’s Bend What’s in the name? Oxbow Bend is a “bend” or looping meander of the Snake River which has been cut off from the main channel. It resembles the oxbow used by the western pioneers. Or at least that’s what I’m told! This was one of my favorite spots in […]

The Denver Art Museum

This Week’s Photo – The Denver Art Museum There is no easy way to compose this son of a gun – but it sure is fun. My eyes were bleeding sweet geometry after looking at the building for just a few minutes! This is the Denver Art Museum in Colorado. It is known for its […]
