Arizona 2016

We made our annual trip to visit my parents in February. Aside from playing tennis every day, I did manage to get out to Sonoran Desert National Monument once again to enjoy some golden-hour shooting. Here are a few images from that evening.

Rose Macro 2014

2014 Jul 28

Wow, it's been a long time since I posted to my blog! We had a busy spring, though. We moved in May so I am just now getting enough time to think about doing some non-move-related things like blogging and photography. Let's get the ball rolling again with an image, shall we?

Stillaguamish River Sunset

2014 Feb 20

It was the first day of my August trip to Washington State. I was staying with my long-time childhood friend, Jeff, who was generously showing me some of his favorite Washington scenery. What I saw on that first day alone has me wanting to go back.

Garden of the Gods Juniper Tree

2014 Feb 10

Driving home from my Colorado Workshop in October, I planned on staying the night in Colorado Springs. As I entered the city in late afternoon, I was closely watching the road signs for hotels to investigate. Instead, I noticed a sign for the "Garden of the Gods" city park. Sounds like a good detour!

Purple Clematis Flower

The wind chill factor was -13°F when I walked the dogs this morning, so for this post I thought I'd revisit a photograph from warm, colorful August.

West Beckwith Mountain

2013 Dec 26

One of the many beautiful locations we shot on my Colorado Workshop back in October was this view of West Beckwith Mountain in the Gunnison National Forest. The mountain rises to 12,041 feet above sea level and as you can see, this past October it was surrounded by an amazing display of color.

Pinnacle Peak Trail Pika

2013 Dec 16

Hiking down from Plummer Peak, we were on Pika alert. As we walked past rock fields on the hike up the mountain we kept hearing them, their high-pitched "eeeek" calls, but the little critters were elusive.

Oak Leaf and Grass with Hoarfrost

2013 Dec 2

On the last morning of the Colorado Workshop I attended in October with Ian Plant and George Stocking we arrived before dawn. The location was a beautiful view of Mount Sneffels. After an hour of shooting the landscape I hiked up the hill behind us to look for a different vantage point and noticed the interesting hoarfrost on the ground. Macro time!

Mount Rainier Over Reflection Lake

2013 Nov 18

In August I went to Washington (another gift from my fantastic wife!) for a Photo Tour of Mount Rainier National Park. One of the highlights of the tour was a sunrise shoot of the mountain reflected in the appropriately-named Reflection Lake.

Autumn Aspens in Colorado

2013 Oct 24

A few weeks ago I attended a photography workshop in Colorado and it was an amazing display of brilliant yellow aspens. The instructors were Ian Plant and George Stocking, two of my favorite nature photographers. Here are a few images from a beautiful aspen forest we visited one morning.
