Cimarron Magic

26Sep22

Colorado’s San Juan Mountains are a part of the Rocky Mountains, located in the southwestern portion of the state. Within the San Juan’s there are ranges with their own names such as; the Sneffels Range, the Needle Mountains, the La Garita Mountains, the San Miguel Mountains, and the La Platas, to name a few. The […]


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 […]


If you are a frequent visitor to this blog there’s a good chance you’ve seen photos of Mount Sneffels, and read about it too. That’s because it’s Ouray County’s tallest, and most prominent mountain at 14,157 feet. It can be seen from many locations and therefore makes its way into a lot of my compositions. […]


I had a fun outing recently, up along Cimarron Ridge, not far from our home. New snow coated the tall spruce trees along the top of ridge and I felt like I was in a winter wonderland!

I’ve learned to be grateful when it works out and stay positive […]


Nothing too new here … just more mountain sunsets I’ve had the pleasure to witness this winter. With limited mobility this time of year my telephoto lens is a frequent choice. I can focus on the peaks where the snow is always fresh and pair them with interesting portions of the sky. For this kind […]


For this post I have collected images that feature mountains, along with interesting clouds. I feel each image here gives equal importance to the mountains and clouds … more or less. For me, clouds can make or break a scene. As a matter of fact, I can get quite picky about them! The clouds need […]


Savory Sunsets

Some may think sunsets are cliché but I for one never get tired of them. And, from what I hear and see, I am not alone! Whether enjoying them from the comfort of my living room, or out in the landscape with my camera, a sunset surprise is always inspiring. With years of photographing and […]


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 […]
