Independence Eve in Denver

Since 2010, the Civic Center Conservancy and the City and County of Denver has hosted an Independence Eve celebration in Civic Center Park. It seems to get larger every year and crowds are estimated at over 100,000. The concert this year featured performances by Soul X (#soulxband) and the 101st Army Band of the Colorado National Guard. Governor Hickenlooper helped kick off the evening welcoming everyone.

The images below are phone shots from my Nexus5x with a bit of post in Lightroom CC. I put the big camera aside and enjoy the evening with family. My granddaughter throughly enjoyed the music and fireworks and stayed through the entire event. It’s such a pleasure to see the joy in a child’s eyes.

A Saturday night walk about in Denver started on the campus of the University of Denver and then headed to the area around Civic Center Park. Stops at the Denver Art Museum and a couple of cathedrals made for some interesting images in the early evening light.

Sloan’s Lake and I25 Light Trails

Another fun night with the Denver Night Photo Walk Community, aka the Denver Nightcrawlers. We started out at Sloan’s Lake Park hoping for a nice sunset with the skyline in the distance and maybe a reflection or two. Then a little playing with glow-sticks and steel wool for interesting light effects. While the majority headed off to photograph the nearby neighborhood and a few libations, a couple of us headed north to try for some light trails into Denver. Oh, and throw in one from a rain out at Coors Field, Cubs in town!

Denver Nightcrawlers January Photowalk

First night with a diverse bunch of photographers shooting a wide variety of equipment. One had an old Minolta 101T shooting 35mm film. How cool is that! We met outside the Mayan Theater on Broadway in Denver and wandered south, shooting whatever struck our fancy. Ended up shooting with a new friend, Patricia and all in all, it was a great night. Being new to street photography, I’m still figuring out how I like the feel of the processed image, so you will see multiples of the same image, treated differently.

Beaver Moon Over Denver

Beaver Moon

The super moon that occurred mid November, 2016 is often referred to as the Beaver Moon. According to the Farmers Almanac:

 This was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. Another interpretation suggests that the name Full Beaver Moon comes from the fact that the beavers are now actively preparing for winter. It is sometimes also referred to as the Frosty Moon.

This is the closest the moon has come to earth in over 70 years, according to NASA and won’t happen again until 2034. We took advantage of fairly clear skies to shoot it both from Red Rocks Amphitheater and a couple locations near downtown Denver.

A Night in Denver

A Night in Denver

It is always fun to go poke around Denver looking for new shots and recapturing previous locations. On this night, a visit to Union Station and it’s summertime fountains made for some interesting people watching and fun with lighting. Inside the always interesting panoramic was there to be taken.

I finally visited City Park at the right time to catch the iconic view of the Pavilion against the sun setting over the mountains. Classic Denver.

The clouds were settling in over the city as set up to shoot from this iconic location. On top of that, the winds were strong enough to ruin quite a few images. But, overall I like this view.
