I was so busy this past summer participating in art shows around Colorado that I barely got a chance to get out to take any pictures. It was driving me crazy, especially since I had picked up a new camera late in June. I finally got a chance to get out and do some shooting in September. -- more --
I have one of my favorite images featured on both the cover and on a double page spread of the May/June issue of Colorado Life Magazine. Daybreak at North Clear Creek Falls was selected to be part of an article on Colorado waterfalls. I am really impressed with how it turned out. If you haven't ever seen Colorado Life Magazine, I encourage you to have a look, especially if you live in Colorado. They share lots of interesting facts about the state and highlight a variety of things to do and see throughout the region.
I started working on updating my website last August, but one thing after another kept me away from really focusing on getting it done. At one point I worked on moving it to a paid hosting site (in fact I switched for a couple of hours!), only to find what I should have known from the beginning – I don’t like giving up control! Well after many hours at the computer, I can say it is done. -- more --
What a peaceful way to start the day. This morning was entirely the opposite of the day before at Dragon’s Teeth (read more here). There weren’t any rain showers around. Just a few clouds along the horizon to catch some of the early morning light. -- more --
It is about time that I post something new! I snuck in a trip to Maui before the holidays and have found some time to start processing images. The first sunrise location that I visited was the dramatic Dragon’s Teeth volcanic rock formation on the northwest tip of the island. This image portrays just some of the drama from the scene that morning. -- more --
Fall is quickly approaching and it reminded me of a trip I took last year. I met up with
good friend and fellow photographer Rod Hanna in late September and headed out in search of peak fall color. We heard from others that the colors were good down around Lake City in southern Colorado. I hadn't spent much time in the area and was anxious to check it out. -- more --
I was looking through my catalog for a new panoramic shot from Colorado and remembered that I had taken this image last fall just down the road in Buena Vista. The stormy skies began to clear shortly after sunrise and I could see things were shaping up for some dramatic light on the mountains. -- more --
I couldn't have asked for a better day to explore the Tremont area of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The sunny skies I left in Gatlinburg shortly after sunrise quickly became overcast with drizzle and showers as I entered the park. -- more --
This weekend kicks off my art show tour for the year. After working the kinks out as a rookie last year, I am looking forward to getting out, meeting some people, and making some sales. Who knows, I might even lose a few pounds with all the exercise I will be getting!
