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, […]


Vernal Views

01Jul21

Following are some random landscapes shot this May & June. These didn’t fit into other planned posts using spring images so I put them together below. Since summer is here, I thought I really ought to post them! I was eager to get out this year and have been enjoying the warm weather, nature and […]


I’ve been a bit slow adding to this blog lately but I can explain! My usual pattern is; shooting mode, processing mode and then blogging. With spring finally here I have been getting out and shooting more often. Like any other season it has its rewards and being outside in the warm sun feels so […]


On one of this week’s photo adventures I found myself out in the open during an afternoon of scattered showers. Being able to witness (and feel a part of) the dynamic weather was exhilarating! I was not only excited by the visuals but relieved to get some rain in our drought-stricken part of Colorado. In […]


Just Peachy

27Apr21

In need of a spring fix I recently headed north to Palisade Colorado, where they grow the biggest, juiciest and most delicious peaches in the world! Accompanied by my husband Brent, it was just a day trip, 2 hours there, 1 hour of looking and shooting and 2 hours back … give or take. I […]


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 […]


After a long, long, very snowy winter I’ve been out close to home searching for spring! To tell the truth, as glad as I am to see spring arrive each year, it has never been my favorite season for photography. It comes in third with autumn and winter being first and second. And if I […]


A recent two-night camping trip with my husband, Brent took us northeast from home. We traveled through four mountain passes and breathtaking Colorado scenery. We stopped at Twin Lakes in Lake County on our second morning, and later decided to camp there. They are some of the prettiest lakes I have ever seen and I […]


Rides through the country and my curiosity in seeing what was around the next curve developed a love for the landscape, as well as Americana, at a young age. As an art student and through the years I found myself being attracted to landscape paintings and artwork, more-so than other subjects. Early in my photography […]
