Raven Fly-by




During one of my trips to the summit of Mount Evans, a small group of Ravens soared overhead. Here is my favorite image of one of the ravens as it made a close fly-by: I will be quite busy over the next 10 days, initiating a new and interesting photo project. It is likely that […]

Pika Time




Today’s post features one of my favorite subjects to photograph when I travel to the Colorado Rockies. The American Pika is a very small mammal, weighing only about 4 ounces. It feeds on an assortment of green plants and can often be spotted as it quickly runs between it’s source of plants and it’s den, […]

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 […]

Fun Friday: Where’s Waldo?




On one of my trips back down from the summit of Mount Evans, a small group of Ptarmigan were encountered that were foraging among the rocks, beside the road. Ptarmigan reside in these higher altitudes, but are difficult to spot as they blend in so well with their surroundings. Luckily, this small group were walking […]

Cute Little Kids




Today’s post features some of the many, cute Mountain Goat kids that were in a group of goats near the summit of Mount Evans (in the Colorado Rockies). The Mountain Goats, and particularly the young kids, are always a highlight of every trip I make to Mount Evans. Born in early June, by late summer […]

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 […]

Fun Friday: Between a Rock & Hard Place




Whenever I photograph in the Mount Evans area, I always look forward to being with the mountain goats that call Mount Evans home, and particularly the young kids. Born in June, they are full of play and so much fun to watch. As in past years, I was able to photograph the mountain goats near […]

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 […]
