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 […]

Sunspot, Baby

Ah, yeh … a familiar old tune from Bob Seger and his Silver Bullet Band. That’s what I was reminded of as I cleaned and checked out my camera equipment on Saturday afternoon, preparing for the big total eclipse today. A while back, I purchased some solar filter sheets and fabricated my own filter holders […]

Sunrise On Snowball Hill

Faves of 3Q 2016

Third Quarter 2016 was photographically slow starting out. My wife had just passed and I was busy taking care of her estate. And at that time, my desire to get out and photograph was at a new, all-time low. But after a lot of soul searching, I knew I had to return to what was […]

After a short hike (0.5 mile), […]

And not just the arches … my trip there coincided with the recent, extra-large, “super moon”, as well as during the Leonids meteor shower. Over the next few posts, I’ll feature some of […]
