The scenery along County Road 12 west of Crested Butte, Colorado is always exceptional but in the fall, it is out of this world. Miles upon miles of golden aspens are mixed in with many grand views of the West Elk Mountains. Marcellina Mountain is a prominent peak which is visible from many locations along […]
I thought I would mix things up a bit and get back to a shot from this fall here in Colorado. I was able to spend more time shooting fall colors this year since I wasn’t doing any art festivals. It was nice! The area around Ridgway in southwestern Colorado is always a popular spot […]
Autumn has arrived. Day by day, more and more aspen trees turn from green to gold with a few orange and red sprinkled in here and there. I have spent hours the last week driving around my local area to witness the progress. Yesterday I headed back up the painfully bumpy road through Clear Creek […]
I spent some time camping and shooting along Kebler Pass Road outside of Crested Butte, Colorado last week. The aspen trees were decked out in their springtime bright greens and the ferns and flowers where all budding and blooming below them. It is a great time of the year! The weather was gorgeous and there […]
I was looking back at my images from the past springs, while planning for this year, when I ran across this this panoramic series of a dramatic sunset outside of Crested Butte, Colorado. I remember it well. I was camped not more than a couple of hundred yards from this location. As sunset drew near, […]
I have lots of images that I have taken over the years that have never been processed and seen the light of day. I think it is about time that I start digging some of them up and posting them while I have time! This panoramic image is from a month-long trip I took out […]
As was true with most of the mornings at Mount Rainier National Park, the Tipsoo Lake area was socked in the clouds when I arrived before sunrise. At least this morning you could catch occasional glimpses of the peak as the skies started to lighten. I setup in the same spot I had setup many […]
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.
After a couple of mornings at Two Medicine and Swiftcurrent lakes, my good friend and fellow photographer Luke Tingley and I were ready for a change. The problem was that the road going into the park was closed until 7:00 AM just outside of the tiny town of St. Mary where we were staying. With […]
The second visit for sunrise at Two Medicine Lake proved to be just the opposite of the first. The clouds dancing above the mountains to the west were a welcome addition, but the wind whipping across the lake made it a pretty hard to get any kind of reflection in the lake.
