• December 2017 print of the month

    This picture was one from an early spring hike into Devil’s Head Fire Tower along the Colorado front range. It is not such a long hike except for the fact that the Forest Service closes the access in winter to the campground only a mile away from the watch tower, effectively making it a 4+ […]


  • November 2017 print of the month

    This image was taken on the first evening I went to the Great Sand Dunes National Park in September 2017. I went to remember the lines in nature. This image holds both the randomness and the mystique of winds, sand, time of year, and time of day. All came together in a manner that makes […]


  • the last evening at the Dunes

    Another afternoon storm greeted the end of my last full day at the Dunes. I had walked about halfway up the Dunes for an evening shoot only to be greeted by torrential rains. Thankfully I had my rain parka and was kept dry, except for the area below the hemline, which was totally soaked. It’s […]


  • lines in the Dunes

    I went back to sand dunes to reconnect with my artistic perception of life because of a break-thru experience I had at White Sands National Monument about 5 years ago. I discovered at that time that I loved lines. And sand dunes had clear cut lines like nowhere else. Leading lines are one of my […]


  • rain in the Dunes

    An interesting thing happens when it rains on the Dunes. The outer perhaps ½” becomes slightly caked. It turns dark. And as this caked layer dries out, it starts to break apart. A bit like watching an ice field break up in the water. The ensuing shapes form odd textures and contrasts on the surface […]


  • Great Sand Dunes in Colorado

    I recently went to the Great Sand Dunes for 3 days and 2 nights for my first photo op in a long time. It was a good and challenging experience. The Great Sand Dunes dune field is about a 5 x 6 mile semi-square. The Dunes reach a peak of over 600 feet above the valley […]


  • Mammoth Hot Springs #4

    This small collection is about as impressionistic as I get (so far). However looking into the water as the overhead light changed made for some images that were more abstract and impressionistic. These pools seemed to draw one’s attention into its colors and depths. Several of them remind me of a contemporary painter named Cosmina, […]


  • blog vs. print of the month

    Several have asked why the blog posts are not in concert with the prints of the month. That is a very good question, so I felt like writing a brief post about the answer. Basically, there are two lines of conversation in my site. The blog posts are stories of my photographic journey. Sometimes they […]


  • Mammoth Hot Springs #3

    This collection shows a series of foreground-only images and shows the range of subjects in the pools and area around the hot springs. This was a time in my journey when there was much less focus to my work. I returned here from farther down the road of learning and critique to reconstruct these images for […]


  • Mammoth Hot Springs #2

    Once you get above the ashen wasteland, the walkway levels out to show the land and vegetation creeping forward toward the springs. There are peculiar shapes and colors in and around the pools. Dead pools continue to show the ashen remnants of a once-life. Trees have died leaving their archetypal shape. There is a glimpse […]
