Mount Sneffels is without a doubt the most popular mountain in Ouray County. It gets a lot of attention and rightfully so. At 14,158 feet it joins an elite club called the ‘Fourteeners’. Many very fit hikers/climbers have challenged themselves with the goal of climbing all 53 of the Fourteeners In Colorado. Mount Sneffels ranks […]


When venturing out on a shoot I usually have a particular destination in mind, wanting to add to an ongoing collection, or perhaps find something new. Whatever I’m after I stay tuned in to scenes and subjects along the way. I like to be open to everything Mother Nature presents to me! When it comes […]


The North End

20Jul20

This post pays tribute to the less photographed, north end of Cimarron Ridge. I’ve shown images of the more mountainous south end including, Chimney Rock, Courthouse, Coxcomb, Precipice and Redcliff in a number of previous posts. I can see and often photograph the Cimarron’s from our property as well as when I’m out and about. […]


Friends and followers of this blog know I can’t go too long without posting images of old structures … shacks, cabins, barns and other mining and agriculture buildings. I just can’t resist these weathered characters! They seem to fit in with the land much more appropriately than new buildings while stirring the imagination of days […]


There’s a saying … “If you’re lucky enough to live in the mountains, you’re lucky enough.” And it seems that most folks living here do feel that way, including myself. I am grateful to have all of this wonderful scenery that inspires me each time I venture out with my camera. I love exploring to […]


Creative Identity … what is it and what does it mean to you?  I consider everything I do with photography and how I do it, all added together to be my Creative Identity. I’ve been working on it seriously as my fine art medium since 2000 and the darkroom. Early years were spent experimenting to […]


It’s been awhile since I’ve dedicated a post to the ‘Adobes’ … although I have included scenes now and then, in collections with a different aim. The Adobe Hills or Adobe Badlands are a vast area of more than 10,000 acres in Montrose & Delta Counties, north of my Ouray County home. It is more […]


I’m used to always being out there, trying to out-do my best work while adding to my portfolio. I’m picky and don’t always come away with something I like enough to show, but that’s OK. It’s all good … being out in the fresh mountain air and taking in the scenery never gets old. In […]


Bare Trees

20Mar20

I have no doubt that trees are the most photographed subject in my portfolio. Mountains may be a close second but sometimes trees play an important role in those compositions too. Trees certainly take center stage in my autumn photography and I love to shoot them in winter as well. With the structure visible we […]


In the winter my attention often turns to the mountain peaks. It’s when I find them most beautiful, coated in white, the snow accenting their rugged beauty. When the clouds roll in, usually from the west, or lift after a snow storm I think, ‘this is what heaven must look like’!
