If you are a frequent visitor to this blog there’s a good chance you’ve seen photos of Mount Sneffels, and read about it too. That’s because it’s Ouray County’s tallest, and most prominent mountain at 14,157 feet. It can be seen from many locations and therefore makes its way into a lot of my compositions. […]


I had a fun outing recently, up along Cimarron Ridge, not far from our home. New snow coated the tall spruce trees along the top of ridge and I felt like I was in a winter wonderland! Clearing clouds offered spotlights on the rocky ridge and frosty winter coating. I couldn’t help but think that […]


2021 Favorites

26Dec21

The new year is a great time to take a look back before moving forward. And that’s what I like to do with my photos. Creating a yearly ‘favorites’ gallery on my website is a 19 year tradition! Once archived in a collection, I’m ready to move on with renewed goals and energy. Surprised by […]


Amazing Sunsets

06Dec21

We’ve had some amazing sunsets lately and if I’m lucky, I’m already out there, ready to capture them. The landscape photographer hoping for a successful sunset shot needs to plan, pray and practice patience! (The three P’s!) You never know what will happen! I’ve learned to be grateful when it works out and stay positive […]


The Quiet Time

18Nov21

Snow has come to the peaks but the valleys have received very little moisture. What has fallen melts, leaving a landscape in-between seasons. It’s a quiet landscape … summer and fall visitors are long-gone and winter enthusiasts haven’t arrived. Some businesses close and workers take time off in what is known as ‘shoulder season’. It’s […]


It wouldn’t be fair to close out the fall foliage season without giving cottonwoods their due. Perhaps they are not as beloved as aspen trees but they do have qualities all their own. While they may look big and strong, their large branches break easily. I am always on the lookout for some with nice […]


Here’s the last of my three-part, ‘Autumn Magic’ series, highlighting foliage in the beautiful San Juan Mountains of Colorado! I hope you enjoyed seeing the images. They were fun to make and share. Upon noticing some golden cottonwoods on a recent drive north I think I might have one more seasonal post in me. Found […]


You have to capture the magic when you can! The images here and in the previous two posts were shot between September 19 and October 11 … a 23 day window. That’s not a lot when you consider a year is 365 days. It doesn’t seem right … that’s less than 7% of the year! […]


Autumn is a magical time of the year for me and I love every phase … from the first colorful signs to the last leaf. I contemplated how I wanted to present my fall images this year. Should I show them by date? Should I show all the mountain scenes together? Another ‘tree’ post? Thinking […]


Unlike some autumn landscapes I’ll be posting in the future, this collection is all about aspens! Oh, upcoming posts will include aspens too, along with mountains of course. Fall is very fleeting here and I have been getting out as much as possible to capture it, before some friends visit, and before its over. I’ve […]
