Friday Photo – Thanksgiving, turkey, and Cherokee Ranch

Just south of Denver, is the Cherokee Ranch and Castle - one of those hidden gems that you miss unless you go looking for it.  The castle sits on top of a mesa, overlooking the whole front range (I'll share a sunset pano sometime soon).  We had the chance to go visit for the Elk [...]

Friday Photo – New Horizons in Warrnambool

We took our first trip to Australia as a break from some really stressful events, and drove the great ocean road to Warrnambool.  The B&B there had the most amazing orange cake in the mornings, but in the evening, we just took a walk along the coast to watch the sunset. That's when I saw [...]

Friday Photo: Here’s looking at Emu

The first time we went to Tower Hill in Victoria, Australia, I was just starting to get into photography.  We went in the middle of the day, and the critters were few and far between.  Since then, my technique has improved, and this time we went at dusk, when they were really active.  There was [...]

Friday Photo: Summer on an Alaskan Beach

We set out from Valdez for a day-long cruise into Prince William Sound on the Lulu Belle (highly recommended if you're there).  It was a beautiful day, crisp and cold - just like how I enjoy July, when we came upon these guys sunning themselves on a classic "Alaskan Beach".  They looked at the crazy [...]

Friday Photo – Hawaiian Runoff

As I started getting more serious about taking photographs, I started geotagging them so I could both return to the site and remember where it was!  This image is from somewhere on the North shore of Oahu.  As I recall there'd been a rainstorm that morning, and the waters were turbulent and muddy.  The flower [...]

Friday Photo – Life in a Moab Canyon

The Utah desert may appear barren, but if you look closer you'll see that life finds a way, sometimes clinging to the walls of a canyon.  I was hiking back to the truck at the end of a shoot, and happened across this scene on the side of canyon.   The sun was setting and [...]

Friday Photo – Moab in the Rain

First of all, Moab is a terrible, ugly place that no one should ever visit - certainly not the hordes of people loving Arches National Park to death :-). Seriously, it's an amazing location, with iconic scenery - you can almost see the Duke as he rides across the skyline.  We were there for the [...]

Friday Photo – Bath from Bath Abbey

I really enjoy shooting panoramic photographs - there's no better way to capture the scope and scale of a scene.  Normally this involves a tripod, leveling and pano heads, and a lot of fiddling - none of which can you do while on tour at the top of an ancient Abbey in Bath, UK.  This [...]

Friday Photo – Critters in Alaskan Waters

On our first trip to Alaska, we visited Valdez and Prince William Sound.  It's a real fishing town, with an influx of tourists staying mostly in RV's and a few motels and B&B's, that reminded us of what the Colorado mountain towns were like back when we were growing up. We wanted to take a [...]

Iconic Yellowstone

A few years back my wife and I toured Yellowstone before meeting my dad for a fly fishing boat trip.  It was a beautiful afternoon, warm and sunny, with the shadows just starting to appear.  The moon came over the horizon, and this guy looked up at me - a classic Yellowstone postcard. There were [...]
