2017 Favorites

January 10th, 2018


Once again, it’s time to look back over the past year’s photos and remember the many photographic opportunities we were given. We spent most of our photography time in 2017 revisiting some of our favorite locations and subjects including: Hawaii, Crested Butte, and Southwest Colorado. We also visited Colorado’s San Louis valley and Mesa Verde National Park. Click here to see the 2017 favorites.

2017 was a banner year for kaleidoscapes. We arrived in Crested Butte earlier than usual and were able to photograph the Pasque Flower seed heads throughout their development. That, coupled with some changes in processing produced lots of interesting and colorful images. The Kaleidoscapes gallery has been expanded to include the best from 2017. Some of the older images have been retired. Click here to visit the Kaleidoscapes gallery.

Happy New Year

This post continues our tradition of posting some of our favorite images from the previous year with 24 of our favorites from 2016. Last year we revisited some of our favorite spots such as the Denver Botanic Gardens, Hawaii, Crested Butte, and Ouray. We also enjoyed photographing in some new locations such as Page, AZ and Portland, OR. I also continued to explore new subject matter in the form of urban landscapes.

2016 was also a time for exploring new ways of processing my images. Theresa Airey shared a technique for processing flowers using Topaz Glow. The flowers in this year’s favorites were processed using variations on this technique. I also used Topaz Glow on some Pasque Flower seedheads with amazing results as shown below.

While the seedheads were way cool in their own right, things got really interesting when I decided to try making some kaleidoscapes by sampling the seedheads.

I’ve included three of the new kaleidoscapes in this year’s favorites along with the seedheads used to create them. I have also edited the Kaleidoscapes gallery, adding the new kaleidoscapes and retiring some of the older images. Click here to see the Kaleidoscape gallery.

Happy New Year

January 1st, 2016


I haven’t been posting much recently but that doesn’t mean that this year did not bring many photographic opportunities for which I am grateful. Two trips to Hawaii (with visits to Molokai, Kauai, and the Big Island of Hawaii) along with another extended stay in Crested Butte, CO and short adventures to other locations  provided plenty of opportunities for me to immerse myself in photography. Here is a selection of 20 of my favorite meditations from 2015. Please click here to view the images – I hope you enjoy them.
