Image of the Month: November 2013


Lory State Park, Fort Collins Digital Workshop Event

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 cottonwood trees and bays where water from Horsetooth Reservoir provides crisp reflections. Opportunities abound for unique fall photos like closeups of leaves as well as examples of hikers, cyclists and horseback riders enjoying the outdoors. Other story-telling images of the resilience of nature are available due to the park’s brush with recent wildflowers. While I love photographing in places like Colorado’s Maroon Lake that are renown for their immeasurable, iconic beauty, I know when I go to places like Lory I won’t be locking tripod legs with dozens of other photographers and I’ll be getting images that are one-of-a-kind with every visit. Stop by the workshop sometime to see what other courses we’ll be offering soon!
