My Favorites from 2023

January 12, 2024  •  Leave a Comment

It seemed much harder than usual to motivate myself to get out this past year with the passing of my mom Christmas day 2022.  It's still tough, but with time it gets easier.  Here are my favorites from 2023 in order of when they were taken throughout the year.  Enjoy.

Colorado Life Magazine Cover

September 20, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

I'm honored to have one of my fall images on the cover of the Sept/Oct edition of Colorado Life!  This image was taken many years ago and it was pure luck.  I was heading down the mountain and noticed it was setting up to be an incredible sunset.  I quickly turned around and drove "slightly - ha" over the speed limit to find a viewpoint that would work.  I literally had seconds to capture this image after I got set up.  This is one of those "being in the right place at the right time" images.

My good friend Earl Robicheaux just had an article he wrote published in Landscape Photography Magazine about the group I've assembled over the years. Some of the best friends a person could ask for. Great adventures and more laughs than should be allowed.
