I got a chance to get out and do some shooting last week over in the Crested Butte area. The skies were rather smoky at times due to a major wildfire burning down north of Durango, but Friday morning it was fairly clear to the north and west. After shooting sunrise from a new location […]
I made a quick trip down to the Ridgway area in southwestern Colorado the first of October last fall in hopes of being there at peak fall color. What I found was a little disappointing. The colors this past year were a little different in Colorado as well as many other states. You were likely […]
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, […]
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.
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.
This shot is the culmination of one of the most amazing days I have had photographing landscapes. It isn’t often that all the conditions come together for a great shot. There are so many variables: the light, the weather, the clouds, the wind, and on and on. Many times you show up and wait and […]
Hidden Lake is one of the most popular locations to visit in Glacier National Park and for good reason. The alpine scene at the overlook is simply gorgeous with Bearhat Mountain towering above Hidden Lake. It was tops on my list for places to shoot on my trip to the park in September. Road construction […]
I haven’t spent much time shooting in northwestern Colorado. It always seems like I end up in the more well-known locations around the state or in my own backyard. My good friend and fellow photographer Rod Hanna invited me to come up for a few days this fall and it just so happened that I […]
After salvaging a decent sunrise out of a mostly overcast morning in Glacier National Park, my good friend and fellow photographer Luke Tingley and I decided to see if our luck would hold up on a trip to nearby Grinnell Lake. It was raining lightly as we strapped on our packs at the trailhead, but […]
