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!

Milky Way Season Begins

It was a cold February night/morning for our trek down to Eleven Mile Canyon State Park and Reservoir, but the location was ideal to capture the first Milky Way images of the season with a new moon night. We had enough time to capture images from both sides of the lake despite the galaxy not rising until 3:30 am.

RMNP Night Views

A Night at Rocky Mountain National Park

Five adventurous photographers spent a recent night scrambling around Rocky Mountain National Park for fun. From capturing sunset at Bear Lake to dawn at Dream Lake, we were able to experiment with new techniques (for some) and wander to areas of the park we don’t normally see. (finding Lake Irene as we walked right past it in the dead of night without even seeing it.)

Exploring Rifle, Co

Rifle Falls State Park

My first winter trip to the park with a couple of photographer friends to capture some of the winter beauty. While the ice caves weren’t quite up to expectations, there was enough to capture some of the natural delights. I did play a bit with long exposure for the falls to soften the water flow, and I am happy with how the images turned out.

Chatfield Skies

Sky Palette

The sky over the reservoir at Chatfield State Park is a veritable artist’s palette of colors. These four images were all taken the same evening. As the sun sank deeper behind the foothills, the colors and shapes of the clouds changed bringing totally different views.

July Night Skies

Milky Way over Roxborough

The night skies this July during the old to new moon period of the month were, for the  most part, clear enough to grab some decent images of the Milky Way over Roxborough Park. As a general rule, when shooting the sky and stars, I start at 800 iso, around 20 seconds, f2.8 with a Rokinon 14mm lens. I tweak the time and ISO as needed to get the effect or exposure I want. A bi to light painting is usually done to bring out the foreground a bit. Post processing is done in LR6CC.

I have long wanted to shoot these falls and found myself near enough to the area this week to go capture them. Because of the force of the water, I did not need to go very slow to get some smoothness in the image.
I thought the autumn change added a bit of flavor.

Images captured in and around Arches National Park, Moab, UT over Memorial Day Weekend. Most shooting was done with my Sony a77v and a Rokinkon 14mm/2.8 wide angle lens. Some post processing using Lightroom 5 and Photoshop CC.
