Wildlife Wednesday

There used to be a nice area north of Denver International Airport where burrowing owls could be easily photographed, however, construction and man’s intrusion into nature has forced the owls elsewhere. Pawnee Grasslands is the most popular area to find them these days, but I’ve heard that there are some locations not far from Ft….

Moose Monday

Happy Moose Monday. I’m looking forward to a fun summer of moose photography. Here’s a nice shot of a bull, taken in 2016.  Never before published. I have some cool stuff in the works and once all my Moose are lined up, I’ll fill everyone in. Life is good here in Colorado.

Time For Summer Fun

Despite the lack of blog entries recently, I’m still alive and well. I’ve been knee deep in getting my cabin fired up for the summer and this year has been a particularly busy time with several renovations going on.  I’m just about done with that business. While in Red Feather Lakes, I usually take a…

And That Was The Mistake

Moose Monday! It has become a tradition to post a moose photograph each Monday. No problem. By my calculation have about a half million moose photos. I’m still nursing a severely strained back and just when I think I’ve made some progress, it reminds me that it’s not over with.  I’m on phase three of…

No Advice, Just Train Photos

Cruise the Internet photography websites and you’ll find all number of expert photographers giving you expert advice. Advice that more or less repeats itself year over year. Have you ever noticed that very few of these world famous expert photographers share the actual photographs they take. I write my blog to share my photography. From…

In the 90’s I had a panoramic film camera and a number of Instamatic models. It was 2004 when I…

Monte Vista – After Action Report

Every photography trip is different. This year’s Monte Vista trip was no exception. The story starts over a week before my friend Tim and I leave town.  I normally schedule this trip for the week following the annual Monte Vista Sandhill Crane Festival. Mother Nature had a different idea. The “Bomb Cyclone.” Spring snow storms…

Winter Runs Long in Colorado

The Bomb Cyclone moved through the state this past week. As a result of yet another snow storm, I postponed my trip to Monte Vista for 7 days. I’ll be heading out on this upcoming Monday with the hope that the weather reports are accurate and the Sandhill Cranes are still alive and well, and…

Out and About, Just Duck’n Around

The Arctic freeze has begun to break here in the Denver area. A bit colder and more frozen than a typical year in the Central Rockies has contributed a great deal to my laziness.  Sooner or later the laws of physics will take hold and it will warm up. Yesterday was a warm day and…
