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.

May The Moose Be With You

Winter’s last gasps are upon us.  My back is improving to the point where I can contemplate actually doing things that don’t involve a television remote control. Life is renewing itself. I’ve been reading the photography websites (nothing better to do while laid up) and the subject of Adobe Creative Cloud keeps popping up. Seems…

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…

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…

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…

In Another Dimension

  Kicking back today with more stock photo editing and listening to Classical Music on the internet on the Italian station. Can’t understand a word they are saying but who cares. The music speaks to me. There’s something about classical that keeps the mind focused. I’ve always enjoyed it, particularly Baroque. Vivaldi and Bernini are…

All Things Must Pass

  I’ve been offline for a few days, recovering from a marathon June and July in Northern Colorado. As usual, my photographic attention this summer has literally been focused on moose. With August still ahead, I’ve accumulated around 5,600 moose images this year. Last year’s harvest was over 8,000 moose shots. I’ll probably be close…

A Shower And Shave

  I’m back from the high country and with me comes a nice batch of photographs. Had a wonderful time visiting with friends from the homeland. Cold evenings sitting on the deck of the cabin, swigging on a bottle of port wine, snorting shots of Kentucky Bourbon, telling stories that haven’t been told in 43…
