Red Rock Lake #1
Red Rock Lake is a small alpine tarn in the Indian Peaks Wilderness near Brainard Lake. This is a nice scene with the lake reflecting the landscape like glass.
Wildflowers on Shrine Ridge
A Colorado paradise, a wildflower-encrusted Shrine Ridge offers spectacular vistas of the Holy Cross Wilderness.
Overlooking the Valley
I composed this scene near the summit of Hawksbill in Shenandah National Park but it felt like there was something missing. So I set the camera timer and went and stood in the frame.

Once again, my favorite scene in Red Rocks Park, this time with the last rays of sunlight setting the tips of the jagged formations and the cliff wall aglow with the most intense gold color.

Ducks at Crown Hill Lake
It's hard to believe this is mid-December...well, not if you live in Colorado. What an incredible day to be outside. The sky and clouds were just amazing all day. I spent several hours taking photos. This is one of my favorites.
