Image of the Month: August 2013

I’m not naturally a morning person. Regardless of your predisposition, living and photographing nature in Colorado demands that you become one as I have learned to do. The sun shines its most extraordinary light in the morning on so many of our landscapes. From the peaks of the Front Range which reflect the warm light […]

Image of the Month: May 2013

Landscape photographers are suckers for saturation. Bold and beautiful colors often dominate the genre with good reason: we like to accentuate those times when nature overwhelms us. However, more subtle conditions can be powerful too. While photographing this scene at Muddy Pass Lake east of Steamboat Springs, Colorado, I expected a more vivid sunrise as […]

Image of the Month: April 2013

“The more things change, the more they stay the same.” Recently a friend pointed me toward some rare color transparencies from the 1940s that the Library of Congress has posted on their website. Many of these include WWII-era images of people engaged in home-front projects to support the war effort, though others provide a slice-of-life view into […]

Image of the Month: December 2012

Fog rises from Carter Lake near Loveland, Colorado as seen from behind a grove of snow-covered ponderosa pines. This is one of my first and favorite nature photos taken many years ago the morning after a winter storm. After the dry year we’ve experienced here in the Rockies, here’s hoping we have a White Christmas […]

Image of the Month: October 2012

Sometimes we can find beauty in less-obvious locations. Instead of photographing these aspen in fall foliage head-on, I looked for a different, perhaps more interesting composition during a recent autumn trip to the mountains. A reflection in a lake provided that opportunity. I hope that photographers will look for abstract photos as well as the […]

Image of the Month: September 2012

There may be no better symbol of the end of the summer season and the beginning of the fall harvest than the sunflower. I found these flowers in a farmer’s field near Interstate 25 only about ten minutes from my home in Loveland, Colorado. The field provided a great view of Longs Peak and Mount […]

5 Tips for Wonderful Wildflower Photos

It’s been a long winter here in Colorado. While photographers in the desert southwest and other regions of the U.S. have been taking photos of hillsides filled with wildflowers as early as February we’ve waited patiently for a large snowpack to melt and our own flowers to begin appearing. That time is finally here. Late […]
