Red sunset in the mountains

I got a new camera, an Olympus OMD E-5 Mark 2. It’s micro 4:3 which means it will be easier to lug around in the mountains. Still love my Canon but I gotta admit the portability and ease of it means I’ll be shooting with it more. I paired it with a 14 – 150 Olympus lens.

Night hike

I have always wanted to do a night hike up to Gem Lake and do some night sky photography. Seems like it’s always cloudy or something comes up. Finally got my chance this May. 22 second exposure and some light painting on the lake and rocks. The experimentation was part of the fun.

Snowed in

Spring break. We were up in Estes and it’d been snowing for two days. With 8 inches of snow we weren’t going anywhere so I thought I’d see what I could take photos of in the backyard. I don’t usually shoot stuff like this which made it all the more interesting.
