Plaza Lights



If if you look close you can see the focus isn’t great. I’m not sure why, I was on top of a parking garage so maybe there was some vibration. But it was a nice night, I was with a good friend and I liked the composition.

So here it is.

Twice As Nice

Second time at this magical place. I honestly didn’t expect to see anything I didn’t see the first time (here).

It was different. Different time, different light.

Bear Story


We were driving thru Rocky Mtn National Park and I saw a couple cars pulled off to the side. I pulled over to look. I didn’t see any wildlife but the little meadow looked intriguing so I walked down and started taking pics of the meadow and winding stream. Getting down by the stream, shooting the water and grass.

Coming back up to the road, a car pulled over and a lady said “did you see her?” Wade and I both said “see who?” “The mama bear that’s down in the meadow.”

After we recovered we drove around to the other side of the meadow and I got the above pic. Not the best in the failing light. And I wasn’t getting close again.

Locked and loaded

Every year I get a chance to take a long weekend in Estes Park. It involves lots of photography and hiking. Mostly photography. Ok there’s beer at the end of the day but mostly photography. Mostly.


I took this about 5 years ago. I’d been to South Africa several times and had never seen a rhino. I was at a game park. I saw this guy. I was so excited I  jumped out of the car with my camera and started shooting. Then a game keeper came running over and told me to get back in the car.
