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, […]


I love winter imagery in black & white. Early in the season my dream was to create a bigger collection of monochrome photos, but after looking back have only a modest offering. There were several trials that when viewed objectively, looked best in color. Black & white can be tricky and only a small percentage […]


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 […]


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 […]


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 […]
