Midnight Sun




Today’s post features an image I captured in Little Tutka Bay, Alaska, a few years ago. While lodged in a cabin in Little Tutka Bay, this “sunset” was captured just a short while before midnight. Good example of Alaska’s “Midnight Sun”: Photographic Equipment Used: Canon 1D Mark 2 body Canon 28-135mm f/4.5-f/5.6 IS lens, shot […]

Longing For Summer, Yet?




We really haven’t had a winter, yet. But seeing the bright colors of summer, while recently editing some old images, has already got me thinking of next spring! Just seeing the bright and vivid colors of wildflowers, like this Tall Bellflower that readily grows along the woodline of my rural Missouri home, really makes me […]

Low Sun Angle Landscapes




I’m now back home, after a couple of weeks on the road. The main goal of the trip was to get some training and practice on a new (to me) technology that I’m looking forward to employing in my nature photography. More on that later, but on the way home I stopped and camped for […]

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 […]
