Changing the Landscape

I really don’t like grey skies. They always seem to be so limiting that it almost takes the fun out of shooting. Usually when it happens it’s best to point the camera down as opposed to up. This was one of those times that it was just fun to point the camera wherever. After finishing […]

Having Fun With the CoolPix

Photography is always about coming up with new ideas and overcoming greater challenges. It’s not easy and is a lot of hard work. Every now and then you have to get out and just have fun. While out fishing I did just that by taking simple shots of the frozen landscape. Frozen is a rather […]

Always Carry Around a Camera

If there is one lesson that you don’t want to learn the hard way it is to always have a camera with you. It’s a little bit easier these days with the quality of modern cell phones, but it’s pretty nice to have a small camera in your pocket for those moments that come up […]

Why You Have to Visit Old Haunts

The Trees Tell the Story

As I talked about last week in a post about snow covered trees creating some of the best abstract patterns, while I was out this past weekend I found a clump of Cottonwoods backed by some Pine Trees that looked just amazing. This time of year we see a lot of bare trees which tends […]

The Unexpected

I originally went out the other day because of the clearer skies but as it normally happens the clouds kept moving and the clear skies turned into bald skies.

Same Rock but Different Look

Well as is common with the afternoon light moving through any canyon, it’s always darkest at the bottom and the last light is always up top. When I looked back I saw this one rock that still had the afternoon light on it. While it would’ve been great to have a Mountain Goat or Bighorn […]
