The following are spring images chosen for their mountain theme. Spring has given me renewed enthusiasm for getting out there! These were shot in May, and at this time of year some of the mountains can still have snow on them. The snow can get a bit dirty from high winds and blowing dust, but […]


Aspen Awakening

26May22

After Colorado’s long winters I get excited when the aspen trees begin to leaf out! When it happens, depends on where. Lower elevations before higher elevations, and sunny spots before shady ones. The foliage starts out very bright and delicate, and I enjoy seeing the tree structure through the leaves. When new leaves are backlit, […]


I’ve never adhered to any kind of schedule for blogging. I simply post when I have recent work and themed projects to share and archive. Then today I realized it’s been over a month since my last post, and that’s a little longer than I like. As explained then, our winters are long! It seems […]


Wintry Mix

25Mar22

The following is a random mix of winter subjects shot in the last few months. If it seems like I post a lot of winter images, I can explain … our winters are long … very long! Second only to autumn, I think winter is a great time to shoot. Challenging as it may be, […]


Sunset and the golden hour are undoubtedly the most popular time to be out shooting … but not just because it’s a beautiful time of day! It’s just a wonderful experience to be there, and in the moment. It can feel absolutely magical when the elements come together, creating pure visual splendor. I like to […]


I’ve been keeping my eye out for silhouettes while out and about with my camera. It’s been fun shooting them and seeing the images come alive in my digital darkroom. Sometimes I like to leave just a hint of detail in the blacks and other times solid black seems best. I’m going to continue to […]


Many of us have a shared affection for trees … they’re so easy to love! Since living in Colorado a lot of my attention has gone to our very popular aspen trees. However, I have long admired the ponderosa pines that grow in my neighborhood, so I decided to make them a self-assigned photo topic. […]


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 […]
