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. […]


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 […]


On October 16th I had quite a surprise when I looked out our front window and saw a stream of smoke, rising from the forest in our Cimarron view. It looked like it had just started so I called to report it. They had learned of it just minutes before. Hunters, plentiful in the forest […]


Many landscape photographers love reflections and I am one among them. This fall I visited a nearby lake on four different mornings, hoping to capture the scene with the perfect sky. It is a popular spot this time of year with other photographers from near and far. The surrounding slopes are filled with beautiful aspen […]


These days I’m lucky to have the time to keep up with processing and posting my images. All caught up I decided to backtrack through my shoots from the last three months. Lo and behold, I found a few I hadn’t posted before. Sometimes images slip through the cracks or don’t fit into a particular […]


On a recent outing the following lakeside location screamed ‘postcard’ to me. I couldn’t resist the scene at the risk of being ‘cliché’. The low sun lit up the shoreline and peak in a beautiful display of warm, golden light before disappearing behind the opposing ridge, making a wonderful end to the day.


Spring Melt

25Apr17

In spring rivers everywhere wake up to meet their annual challenge. And the Uncompaghre River here in Ouray County, Colorado is awake! With plenty of snow still in the high peaks it hurries to deliver spring melt to the places waiting below. Finding a good access point I slowed down my shutter speed to capture […]


Autumn comes and goes early in the mountains so I got right to it upon the first signs. There’s a lot of talk each fall about ‘peak’ color and I’ve come to the conclusion it’s difficult to pinpoint. There may be aspen groves of green, peak color and bare branches all in the same area. I do enjoy fall colors […]


This post is a continuation of my previous post ‘A Tour Through Time’ since it also includes local spots I shared with my visiting friend. Of course different seasons offer very different opportunities. At the time of year pictured here, snow-capped mountains, fast moving streams and spring greens dominate. Now as the snow on the […]


Since my last few posts have highlighted landscape photography I thought I would share a bit of visual history this time around. When a photographer friend came to visit earlier this month I took her on the ‘tour’. We visited many of my favorite local spots which included several old structures leftover from the wild […]
