Can You Belize It?

In November, 2015 I visited the beautiful country of Belize in Central America bordering the Yucatan Peninsula and the Caribbean Sea. I spent most of my time on the island of Ambergris Caye, in the town of San Pedro (the inspiration of the hit Madonna song “La Isla Bonita”), as well as traveling on a fun excursion to […]

Favorite 15 Photos of 2015

During the New Year’s holiday, it’s a tradition among shutterbugs who are members of online communities like Rocky Mountain Nature Photographers and Front Range Wildlife Photographers to share lists of their personal favorite images from the previous year. Thank you to all of the friends and family, new and old, who have made this year’s rather diverse […]

Image of the Month: November 2013

I had a wonderful time teaching an In-the-Field nature photography course last month with enthusiastic students from The Fort Collins Digital Workshop. The course was held at Lory State Park west of Fort Collins. While the park is not known as a fall photography “hotspot” by some photographers, it has some amazing rock formations, brilliantly-colored […]

The lake seems halted in time with frozen undulating waves and ripples  in suspended animation over its surface. Cracks, fractures and trapped air bubbles below seem to glow with […]

Image of the Month: August 2012

August may be the best month in Colorado to hike a fourteener. In most years this is the time when the least amount of snow will be remaining on the state’s high peaks. For those of us who don’t like skiing or hiking with crampons, late summer is an opportune time to explore the summits […]

Image of the Month: June 2012

Few summers begin as early as 2012 did in Rocky Mountain National Park. Trail Ridge Road, the highest continuously paved road in the nation, opened on May 14. This was the third earliest recorded opening. In contrast to last year’s substantive amount of snowpack, this year’s winter was very dry allowing visitors to access the […]

Josh’s photo on the cover of Colorado Life Magazine issue #1
