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, […]


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 […]


In this post I decided to combine two of the image sets I was collecting. Instead of having a separate post for what I was calling ‘Autumn Abstracts & Patterns’ I am combining them here with autumn landscapes for this third ‘Sampler’. I have always been drawn to pattern and repetition in art. When I […]


Autumn Roads

15Oct20

‘Autumn Roads’ is an on-going theme that always attracts me. Some with this subject from the past are among my favorites. I never tire of meandering along a country road searching for scenes to capture. When I include the road in a scene it takes me back to that experience. Here are some from this […]


Autumn Encore!

08Nov19

I’ve already displayed several fall images in my last 2 posts, ‘Autumn Assembly’ and ‘Accented By The Moon’. In those posts I showed how I dealt with a bald, blue sky by eliminating it, including very little, obscuring it (like in the first image here), or capturing the moon for sky interest. This post is […]


Fall Favorites

28Oct17

This collection of images is all about the Colorado landscape in Fall. We were lucky to have some early snow on the mountain peaks adding to the splendor of the season. Clouds, mountains and colorful trees are all important elements in this set. Often waiting for the clouds to be balanced or break I took […]


Autumn Roads

22Oct17

Most of roads in my area are dirt and I traveled on a lot of them this fall looking for photos. The roads themselves became a subject of interest and I worked on forming a collection. Using a road or path can be an effective way to lead viewers into a landscape. The curves and […]
