    Loch Vale Reflections

    Hi All- Went on a hike to Loch Vale in Rocky Mountain National Park with my brother. I waited until the sun dipped behind the peaks and took this when the reflected light blanketed everything in soft, pastel colors. Hope you like it

    Last Light

    Hi All- Took this at Rocky Mountain National Park last week. This open meadow was only about 1 1/2 miles past the trail head and I was one of 3 people there. Waited until sunset just watching the animals (including a moose) eat dinner and this beautiful pink/purple sky washed over the...

    Hi All- Went on a beautiful solo hike at Brainard Lake in the Indian Peaks Wilderness Area. Along with being a beautiful place to explore, it was one of my most successful photo hikes. Hiking through the dark forest, with the sun shining through the trees, made it an ethereal experience...

    Dream Lake (RMNP)

    Hi All- Got out for a short solo hike into Rocky Mountain National Park. Waited and hoped for some clouds, although it was calling for clear skies. Got very lucky and just after sunset the clouds illuminated a beautiful dark orange and red. Great day in the mountains.

    Rocky Mountain Views

    Hi All- Went for a hike with my family yesterday in Rocky Mountain NP because it's fairly close to our house and it's National Park week (get outside!). It was beautiful weather and I thought this composition portrayed the feeling of openness and being outside. Cheers

    Sand Dunes or Snow Dunes?

    Hi All- I braved the cold, windy temperatures the other day (18F) and went out shooting a little. I was interested in the foreground, as it reminded me of when I lived in Florida- the beaches on the gulf had these coastal grasses that sat covered in sand. The only difference being that I...

    Under Starry Skies

    Hi All- I've been wanting to take the "tent under the stars" photo for a while now. Unfortunately, having a pregnant wife and a toddler doesn't make for much camping these days. I finally got my opportunity, but the conditions were against me. There were 30+ mph wind gusts (I forgot how...

    Sunset Mountain Road

    Hi All- Took this right after sunset as I was leaving Mt. Bierstadt (see this gallery for another photo in the set). Super peaceful and I enjoyed the lines. I'm not a motorcyclist, but I'd imagine those who are would love this ride. Cheers!

    Maroon Bells Sunrise

    Hi All- I went camping with the family last weekend at a cool little ranch high in Colorado mountain country. It was the first time I've seen so many yellow aspens at one time. I decided to wake up at 4am and head to Maroon Bells for sunrise. It was quite the feat sneaking out of a...

    Hi All- I've been wanting to take photos at the park near my house for a while. We go for walks with our daughter and I almost always see sun rays flowing through the trees at golden hour. Yesterday, my wife was playing football and I was Mr. Dad. As I was pushing the stroller around the park I...
