The monsoons have arrived in the San Juans.  We went for a backpacking trip into Wetterhorn basin and it rained almost the whole time.  It feels great to finally have some rain but a little sun would be nice…

Casting in Paradise

The thing I like the most about fly fishing is the wilderness you explore while trying to find that perfect fishing spot.  Casting to rising trout in the setting above is what its all about for me.

I appreciate a well composed stunning landscape shot but I think my favorite shooting is integrating people into beautiful landscapes.  I think it tells the story of the scene better and gives the image more feeling having the human element involved.  The most successful images for me are the ones where people say “wow, I want to be there.”  More often then not, adding a person in the scene will invoke that response.

Here is another image from my quick backpacking trip the other day.  I love the look that the icy water gives to this photo.

Lone Cone Deer

It’s been awhile since my last post but I’m back in the game now.  Summer is kicking into full gear in the San Juan’s although the high country still has too much snow for hiking.  The photo above is from just outside Norwood Colorado last night.  I was shooting this wildflower meadow with Lone Cone in the background a little after sunset and these Deer were kind enough to walk into the scene.

Signs of Spring

It has felt like spring to the Telluride locals now for a few weeks, but recently we are having more signs that confirm the early change of season.  The Geese in the image above have been around for a few days now and are filling the air with the sounds of spring.
