Arrowhead First Light

Arrowhead First Light

First Light on the red rocks here at Arrowhead Golf Course in Roxborough Park, Co can be an enchanting view. This misty morning with the frosted vegetation was almost ethereal.

Willow Creek Trail

Willow Creek Trail at Roxborough State Park

It was a beautiful day for hike through this gem of a State Park. I opted for one of the more moderate trails just for a change of scenery. With a Colorado blue sky and wispy white clouds, the day was perfect.

Roxborough State Park Views

Panoramic Views From  Roxborough State Park

Did som poking around my favorite State Park this morning with a fellow photographer seeking different vantage points from Lyons Overlook.  This overlook is a branch trail off the Fountain Valley Trail and is accessible for most kids and adults. It yields some of the best views, in my opinion, of the geology in the Park.

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.

Roxborough Park at Dusk

Roxborough Park Blue Hour

Today was one of the those late afternoons where the setting sun promised to provide some interesting light here in Roxborough Park and Roxborough State Park. One of these views will be familiar to those who follow my work, while the others are ones I see all the time, but tonight they lit up!

Dusk at Garden Of The Gods

Garden of the Gods

While down in Manitou Springs this afternoon to drop off an image for an upcoming gallery showing, we took the opportunity to drive thru Garden of the Gods during the blue hour. Sometimes the stars align and you can grab an interesting image.  The first was taken facing southwest with the setting sun streaming thru the gap in the sandstone formations. The second was from the back, sun facing side.

Snowy Red Rocks

Snow Capped Red Rocks

The day after we had 14″+ snow dumped on us, I had to drop some paperwork off at Roxborough State Park office. I must have viewed this rock formation a hundred times but it never quite grabbed my attention the way it did this day. Kind of wish I had the good camera and lens but this cell phone shot will have to do for now.

More Snowy Reds

This gallery is images shot at Arrowhead Golf Club, next to Roxborough State Park. When the fresh snow hits, it is one of my favorite locations to shoot.

Autumn 2014

Early October Front Range

More images from Autumn 2014. This set is primarily in the Deckers, Co area in and around Cheesman Lake. I had driven thru this area last year and noticed the fire damage. I was surprised to find that the Hayman Fire occurred in 2002! Twelve years previously. It does take nature a long time to recover from our impact.

Late September Exploring

This set, from late September includes a few from the Park County side of Boreas Pass (first 2) and then various images from Guanella Pass. On this particular day I headed up from the Georgetown side.  NOTE: From the slid show view of any image you can scroll below to click and see a full size image. For some reason, better color is gown in the full size than the slide show.
