Sunrise From Cloud Level




On my last day of camping at Mount Evans, I drove to the summit of the mountain (quite daunting in the dark!) to capture a sunrise from the summit. The view from this vantage point was quite impressive, and the layers of clouds really helped to make this a wonderful sight as the sun rose […]

And the Beauty Just Won’t Stop




Today’s post comes from the Upper Goliath Wilderness Area, along the Mount Evan’s Highway in the Colorado Rockies. My last sunrise I posted was a beauty (“Sunrise Over Upper Goliath”), but while reviewing the images later in the day (on the back of my camera), I wished I would have photographed the sunrise with a […]

Sunrise Over Upper Goliath




Another beautiful sunrise over the Colorado Rockies. On an early morning drive up the Mount Evans Highway, I pulled to the side of the road, along the Upper Goliath Wilderness Area, and hiked a short distance to capture the sunrise. Finding an interesting, small bristle-cone pine tree as foreground interest, I set up the tripod […]

Perseids Over Upper Goliath




Today’s post highlights the reason behind my recent trip to Mount Evans, in the Colorado Rockies … to capture the annual Perseids meteor shower over the mountains. This trip was a mixed bag. I managed to capture a couple of meteors, but the weather was not conducive to capture the large number of meteors that […]

Just a Hop and a Skip Away




Today’s post is the first of several that I will be sharing from my recent trip to the Colorado Rockies to photograph the 2017 Perseids meteor shower. This image was inspired by viewing the surrounding skyline from Upper Goliath Wilderness Area, located along the Mount Evans Highway. In the distance, the skyline of Denver is […]

Sunrise On Snowball Hill




(After a short hiatus last week, I’m now back at the computer. It was a stressful week as my air conditioner went totally out on Tuesday evening and had to be replaced. Replacement occurred Friday afternoon, after a week of hot and humid weather, with comfort index reaching as high as 105F! And to top […]

Vista House Viewpoint




Today’s post comes from a viewpoint along the Columbia River Gorge in Oregon, just a short distance east of Portland. I arrived at the viewpoint before sunset, hoping to get a nice sunset image. But it wasn’t to be. As so often happens, a total lack of clouds prevented some nice color over the Vista […]

Be Aware of Your Surroundings




After photographing the barn and wildflowers in my previous post, I picked up my tripod and equipment and prepared to move to another location. At that moment, I realized I had another image in front of me … snow-covered Mt. Hood was clearly visible to the left and behind the wildflowers I had been photographing. […]

Choose Your Lens Carefully!




Ever been out shooting and not quite sure which lens to use? Today’s post, captured during my recent Columbia Gorge trip (Oregon) is a good example of how different lenses can dramatically change the image you capture. During my second visit to the Rowena Plateau area of the Tom McCall Nature Preserve, I decided to […]

Beautiful Blue Camas




Today’s post features a beautiful blue wildflower growing in the Columbia River Gorge area of Oregon, a blue Camas (species unidentified) wildflower. Early one morning, I crossed the Columbia River to photograph at Catherine’s Creek Nature Area, a wonderful little area on the Washington state side of the river. One of the striking wildflowers at […]
