Goodbye 2018 – Hello 2019

The end of the year is always a slow time for photography and even slower time for Internet traffic. Normally Colorado has seen a bit of snow by the end of December but this year has been fairly dry and cold. Interestingly, as I write this article on New Year’s Eve, we are actually getting…

A Small Squabble

  I’m about to venture back to Red Feathers later this week. In the mean time, I’m editing more photos for the stock portfolio. Here’s a shot of two great blue heron having a squabble in a lake. I thought I’d give you folks a break from the moose since I’ll probably be dumping a…

Insights From The Moose Whisperer

Something I learned many years ago was how to find moose. For the average person a moose sighting is more or less coincidental to their being in the right place at the right time. Moose do move around a lot and are not afraid to be in the vicinity of human populations, though their tolerance…

Variety Is The Spice Of Life

Life’s adventures continue here in Colorado. I spent the earlier part of this past week in Red Feathers finishing up the cabin work and there is more to do. I came to a screeching halt when I acquired a nasty head cold, from which I’m still recovering. I used the down-time to consolidate my backups….

Scenic Saturday

Looking forward to a relaxing weekend here in the Rocky Mountains. Trudy is at the cabin on one of her home improvement missions. I tend to step aside and watch the wood chips fly when she takes on a project. The photos from her adventure are looking promising. I just love having a gal who…

On Top of the World

From Mt. Evans on this past Monday morning. This bighorn ewe has a fine sunrise view of the South Park Valley. One of many who visited the summit. At this time of year, the mature rams aren’t found hanging out with the females. The late Spring coat is about as ugly as it gets. As…

I’ll Take It

This morning was my first trip of the season to photograph the mountain goats. Out with friend and fellow photographer Jim Esten, we struck pay-dirt near the summit of Mt. Evans. A good size group of these furry ungulates were gathered on the 14,000 foot peak,  along with a group of bighorn sheep. I managed…

Stop And Smell The Roses

As we approach the opening of moose photography season here in Colorado, the weather has been a mixed bag as usual. The saying is “Springtime in the Rockies”, which is commonly used to describe the drastic changes in weather patterns. It’s not uncommon to have Summer weather one day and four inches of snow the…

Try It, You’ll Like It

It is “Train Tuesday” isn’t it? I’ll use this photo as the example shot for today’s blog post. For the amateur photographer looking to better understand compositions in landscape photography. There’s a concept called “Previsualization” photography gurus often preach. There’s another concept I call “revisualization.” Previsualization in essence is thinking about what your photo is…
