Summer just goes too fast … doesn’t it? Here in the mountains it goes especially fast, with snow possible so early, and winter lasting so long. What’s making it even shorter this year for photography are the all too frequent smoky skies, from fires in states west of Colorado. At times, and as I write […]


The last few summers I have been working to improve my wildflower landscapes. My goal is to have the flowers in a scene for a sense of place, instead of isolating them for a portrait. Creating these kind of landscapes to my satisfaction is one of the more challenging goals I have assigned myself. Finding […]


This post is about a quick trip to the Great Sand Dunes National Park, at the end of May. The park is about a 4.5 hours east of us and even though it was cloudy and raining off and on, I enjoyed seeing some new scenery. We got to the park late and scoped it […]


Vernal Views

Following are some random landscapes shot this May & June. These didn’t fit into other planned posts using spring images so I put them together below. Since summer is here, I thought I really ought to post them! I was eager to get out this year and have been enjoying the warm weather, nature and […]


On one of this week’s photo adventures I found myself out in the open during an afternoon of scattered showers. Being able to witness (and feel a part of) the dynamic weather was exhilarating! I was not only excited by the visuals but relieved to get some rain in our drought-stricken part of Colorado. In […]


Nothing too new here … just more mountain sunsets I’ve had the pleasure to witness this winter. With limited mobility this time of year my telephoto lens is a frequent choice.

My attraction might include pattern, repetition, arrangement and/or placement. When a couple of my selections for this set […]


This post features some snowy, winter landscapes, shot recently here and there, not too far from home. Getting out with my camera has been a saving grace during this time of safety and isolation. I watch the weather, think about where to go and then take my chances hoping my choice will offer favorable results. […]


Alone

12Jan21

I have been on the lookout for interesting lone tree subjects since the beginning of my photo journey. Trees with a nice shape, trees that standout against the sky or have an interesting background, catch my attention. In my previous post I featured an image of a lone tree in a small B&W collection. The […]
