Simplification

I’ve been hard at work not taking photographs this past week. Sometimes, you just have to spend time in the office and get the housecleaning taken care of. I’m presently getting things together for the upcoming Autumn Photography trip to the San Juan Mountains of Colorado during the last week of September. A summer’s worth…

Rocky Mountain High

My next photographic journey is back to the San Juan Mountains and Ouray, Colorado. Ouray (pronounced Your-ray) is a majorly great place in Fall. A historic Colorado mining town in SW Colorado, Ouray has just about everything you’d ever need to be happy about life. In the heart of the San Juan’s, about 10 miles…

The Shiras Moose of Colorado

  With Summer coming to an end, so goes another season of Moose Photography in Colorado. My moose photography season lasts from June through the end of August when the hunting season begins. I’m not interested in contending with hunters and subjecting myself to misplaced projectiles, thus I don’t normally spend much time photographing moose…

The Best Moose is the One You Have With You

Now that I’ve returned from a successful and probably final moose photography outing in Northern Colorado this year, I’m sifting through and editing some 3,500 or so fresh images of these amazing creatures. As with any photographic subject, one can find a number of different attitudes and views among friends and acquaintances. One reoccurring attitude…

I’ve Always Been a Dreamer

Autumn is beginning in the high country of Colorado. I’ve just returned from what will probably be my last major effort at moose photography this Summer. A very good Summer indeed. For those who live at lower altitudes the change of seasons probably isn’t apparent, however, working at 10,000 feet in Northern Colorado, fall is…

The Wood Duck

There aren’t many ducks that are more pretty than the wood duck. Fairly common duck in Colorado and around the US. I’ve found them in the local lakes quite often. Sometimes they will even perch in the trees. One nearby lake in particular provides a nice Autumn color setting with water reflections. The local photographers…

The Northern Shoveler

Northern Shovelers are a common waterfowl here in Colorado. The shoveler is a fairly skittish duck, tending to keep its distance from people. It’s easiest to catch them in flight as once hey hit the water they will move into an area of the lake that will give them a safe distance from the camera…

The American Avocet

I’ve been offline for a week, working on stock photographs. Here’s a small collection of American Avocet photographs I’ve taken over the past few years. These birds regularly breed in a local lake and I make it a point to get a few shots each year when they turn up. Very gentle and cooperative subjects….

My World On A Friday Afternoon

  This has been a quick week for me, despite having done much of nothing. I managed a mountain goat day trip with my friend Merlin. I took a one camera one lens combo this trip. The Nikon D7200 with the 70-200 f/4 VR. It took a bit to get used to it, as I…
