Posts Tagged ‘mountains’

The last few posts were about very specific themes … trees, water, mountains and then wildflowers. These subjects are common in my portfolio. In this set I’ve combined subjects, while considering how the elements come together to provide a sense of place. I want my photographs to portray a feeling of being there. Ideally it’s […]


No matter what scene or subject I’m out to capture, I’m always open to the many mountain scenes I’m presented with. For this post I’ve grouped some recent compositions where the mountains and peaks play the starring role!

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 […]


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 […]
