Wrapping up 2018

With 2018 coming to an end, I suppose it’s okay to reflect on my life this past year. 2018 has been a different year for me professionally and on a personal level, in so much that my wife experienced her first year of retirement from her job as an Engineer with Lockheed and I have…

Your Best Photos Aren’t The Ones You Think

I recall seeing a documentary on television a few years ago about Ballet. There was an interview with a famous ballet instructor where she was talking about her students lamenting over their own talent and how to become recognized. It seems all artists struggle with this concept of self worth and evaluating their own talent….

I am back to photographic action this week after a short hiatus. I find that my propensity to write articles is closely related to my propensity to take photographs.

Photography trips and personal life caused me to pause briefly but today I’m picking up where I left off. I’m thinking perhaps once a month as the Winter settles in, I’ll resume the practice….

The Photographic Cycles of Life in Colorado

By mid-October, Winter weather begins its grip on Colorado. As a matter of fact, it’s snowing as I type this. Our first noticeable snow storm of the season here in Denver. The warm season doesn’t last long here at high altitude. Mountain folk think of Denver and the Front Range dwellers as “flat-landers” to a…

Grand Finale

Another season of Autumn Photography comes to a close here so I thought I’d put together a gallery of some of my personal favorite Autumn Landscape Photographs from my journeys through Colorado over the past 10 years. It’s difficult to choose which images to include as I have close to 500 commercial photographs, but this…
