Road trip revisited
With my 16-year-old behind the wheel heading west on I-70 in Glenwood Canyon, I stood up in the sunroof to snap this shot of one of the impressive buttes along the Colorado River, accented by a developing thunderstorm. I love this edit!
During the same roadtrip I had a chance to watch the sun rise over the Black Canyon of the Gunnison and later made this edit.
Silverton at dawn under the same monsoom skies that helped dramatize the riverside shot.
Another edit of an image in a Silverton alley.
This is another drive-by shot, sailing up eastward toward McClure Pass I was amazed at how much sharpness and saturation I could get even under a mid-day sun.
FRISCO — Oh, the amazing Dr. Seuss colors you can create when you have an incredible digital darkroom like an iPhone at your fingertips! All of these images are highly filtered and stylized to emphasize the intense summer roadtrip vibe during a climate-reporting journey to Southern Colorado this summer.

Watching winter …
Black ice forming along the edge of Dillon Reservoir in Frisco, Colorado.
Morning sunlight streams into the Snake River Canyon near Keystone, Colorado.
Serene winter sunset in Colorado.
Alpine ice in Colorado.
FRISCO — Sure, we all love snow, but I say ice is underrated. There’s such beauty in watching winter take hold across streams, lakes, reservoirs and ponds. Later in the winter it will all be covered with snow, so now’s the time to venture out to the edge of the water and watch the weird and wonderful development of the mountain cryosphere. At times, you can hear the ice sing and ping as it stretches, cracks and grows. In other places, where shards of ice are blown by the wind, it can sound like thousands of little ringing bells. Check out our daily photo feed on Instagram and visit our Fine Art America online gallery for more landscape shots from Colorado.

Dusk light in the Meadow Creek wetlands. The light was quite murky and the color images were tinged with scattered blue UV rays, but treating it in B&W helped make them more crisp.
FRISCO — An iPhone set, all images processed in-camera, shows the incredible range of light conditions that can be captured if you’re in the right place at the right time. My favorite shot in this set is the sandstone tower in Glenwood Canyon (third image) which I took standing up through the sunroof of the #climaterangers truck while stuck in traffic on I-70, but the shaft of light in the second image is a close second.

Vertical landscape, to emphasize the deep reflections in the pond. This is an unfiltered, unedited shot straight out of the iPhone.
FRISCO — It’s probably no secret, but not all the images in this ongoing series are morning shots (although many are). But today’s sunrise was so cool that I just decided to post a set showing some different flavors of the same scene, with all the shots taken within a half hour and all within a mile of Summit Voice headquarters in Frisco. If the rest of the day is as good as the sunrise, well, it should be pretty spectacular! Continue reading

I had to underexpose the foreground to try and capture some of the detail and color in the clouds, which collapsed almost completely a few minutes after this shot.
FRISCO — Since I don’t have a super wide-angle lens, I sometimes use my iPhone to try and capture the broad sweep of our Rocky Mountain landscapes. It’s not ideal, because you have to be darn sure you maintain a level camera while scanning across the scene, but sometimes it’s worth it. Other times, you can take a slice of a landscape shot by cropping horizontally, like the first shot in this set, but your eyes will almost instinctively know that it’s not a true panorama, but just an edit of a “normal” image. Either way, it’s fun to play around with this format. Continue reading

Some photo fun
If you thought lichen only lives on rocks, guess again. Here’s a patch growing on a gnarly old cottonwood tree near the base of Dillon Dam. Check out the rest of this Instagram set. The square-format images show well in the blog column, and you can also visit our online gallery at Fine Art America to view and buy high quality prints and greeting cards. Continue reading
