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 […]


Spring Rush

22May20

In the mountains nothing calls out ‘spring’ quite so exuberantly as the streams, rivers and waterfalls! Swollen rivers rush melted snow downstream to get to where it is needed. Always careful of my footing it’s exhilarating to stand beside a roaring river, to witness its power, through sight and sound. And waterfalls are in their […]


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 […]


Winter landscape photography has its challenges and I’ve mentioned them, more than once in previous posts through the years. Today I was thinking that we are at the mercy of the conditions in winter, more so than any other season here. With many roads closed there are just more options in spring, summer and fall. […]


Winter Wonders

17Jan20

In this post I’m displaying some winter images that caught my eye while reviewing. Getting a closer look by processing them helps me determine how much I like them and if they make the cut. And sometimes they don’t! I think that I am both selective and critical of my own work. A photo club […]

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 […]


Side-tracked with autumn images I had forgotten some of these, just waiting in the wings. Once I process images I like to gather them into sets and post them here on my photo blog. It’s one of the ways I archive my work. I can look back and see what I’ve done. Just some of […]


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 […]
