West Dallas Creek

Here’s a quick post from West Dallas Creek and a view of the Sneffels Range. I’m heading back down to Telluride this weekend for a quick trip to do a little scouting and also to hear some Jazz (Telluride Jazz Festival). I’m really looking forward to my Fall Colors Tour down in Telluride. The tour is full this year, but hopefully you can join me next year.

Miller Cabin | Grand Teton National Park

This is Miller Cabin.  This cabin sits just outside of the National Elk Refuge near Grand Teton National Park along the road to Flat Creek. It’s a wonderful peaceful property with great views of Teton Mountain out behind the Elk Refuge.

Miller Cabin was the cabin of  Robert A. Miller the first superintendent of  Teton National Monument. Miller took up residence in Jackson Hole in 1865 and then eventually settled along Flat Creek. He helped organize the town of Jackson back in 1901 and was the president of the local bank. His wife actually served two terms as Mayor back in the 1920’s.  Miller was chosen to be the administrator of the Teton Division of the Yellowstone Timberland Reserve and eventually established the National Elk Refuge in 1912 near where this cabin resides.  Miller ran the refuge from the house near this cabin. This cabin served as Miller’s home before his time with the Timberland Reserve when he was with the Forest Service. This cabin is now maintained the U.S. Forest Service.

Sunrise on the Open Range

One of my favorite places for a sunrise is in Grand Teton National Park.  There are so many good locations for a sunrise. This particular morning was after an evening astrophotography shoot with Ryan Wright.  It was late enough in the morning that it wasn’t worth heading back to the motel in town so we parked at the Glacier View Turnout and caught a few hours of sleep in the car.  It wasn’t the most pleasant of sleeping conditions but gave us just enough energy to capture the sunrise on the open range in front of Grand Teton Mountain.

We were greeted with a nice herd of bison grazing on the range and then the alpenglow hit the peaks Teton Mountain range. I don’t think the orangish-red glow on top of the Teton peaks ever gets old. I’m envious of the people who get to witness it on a daily basis.

Sneffels Range

My apologies for the lack of posts lately. Life’s events have taken over the last few weeks and hopefully it will get back to normal soon. I haven’t gotten out to shoot as much as I’ve wanted to but definitely have the itch to do something creative again. I have some creative projects on my list of ideas and so now it’s time to make one of those projects happen.

This image is the Sneffels Range located in San Juan Mountains just outside of Telluride, Colorado and was shot near the Last Dollar Ranch. The storm clouds were rolling out from storm that hit that morning in the Telluride area and it made for a spectacular afternoon of moving cloud goodness! The afternoon sun created a nice warmth to the scene and lit the mountain range perfectly just as the clouds were rolling over.

I do have a Colorado Fall Colors Photography Tour coming up in September of this year and so I’ve been starting to do some of the final planning around the trip. There is still an opening if you are thinking about a fall photography tour this year. I would love to have you out here in Colorado and show you around so you can see beautiful scenery such as the Sneffels Range shown in this image.

Full Moon Rising over the Divide

I’m taking you back a few years with this image.  This is Jones Pass here in Colorado.  I took this venture with Justin Balog.  Such a great day and this image has almost everything you would want in an image, except maybe a reflection.  It was taken at sunset and so the clouds have some of the warmth from the sun on the right, full moon rising on the left and mountains off in the distance, the Continental Divide, and snow on the ground.  It was our perfect storm.  I remember distinctly fighting with myself, do I capture the sunset or the full moon rising and there I was running from one side of the mountain to the other to try to capture both and then stopping in the middle to capture this panorama.  You can read more about the adventure in previous posts.

A River Runs Through It – Dead Horse Point

This is Dead Horse Point at sunrise. One of my many wonderful trips with Ryan Wright over the past couple of years. This is one of the most amazing places at sunrise. This image captured some of the detail along the bottom of the canyon at Dead Horse point, where the Colorado River carved out its curve through the canyon.  It’s one of many horse shoe curves along the river as it runs south. The reflection below of the canyon walls in the river caught my eye and it’s most noticeable in the morning light. It is such a beautiful site and one I’m itching to get back to soon.

Snow Covered Fountains – Roxborough Park Colorado

I know the East Coast is getting hit by some severe snow storms. I wish all my friends and family back east warmth and safety.  Stay Safe.

I thought I would share some more images from here in Colorado from out last snow and hopefully bring you some of the beauty here in the winter months from Colorado. One of my goals has been to capture the red rock fountain formations here in the state during the winter and for whatever reason it hasn’t happened until this year. Boy, I need to get out in the snow more often. It was absolutely beautiful and worth the effort to bundle up and get out in the elements.

Here are some fountain formations in Roxborough State Park. I love the way you can still see some of the red rock and the dusting of snow on the trees and brush surrounding the formations. Nothing like standing in solitude with an incredible view.

Stay safe and warm, everyone!

Cottonwood Pass

Cottonwood Pass sits on the Continental Divide in Southwest Colorado between the Gunnison and San Isabel National Forest at 12, 126 feet. The pass goes over the Sawatch Mountain Range between Gunnison/Crested Butte to the West and Buena Vista on the East.  The road in the winter months is closed due to snow and this image today was taken in late September and as you can see snow had already started to accumulate on the pass.

This view if from the top of the pass viewing was along the Sawatch Mountain Range with a small alpine pool below to the left and on right the range leads you over toward Aspen. I didn’t realize it as the time, but there was a person standing down by the alpine pool and so that gives you a sense of scale for the image. The fall colors started late this year in Colorado due to tall the moisture, but as you can see in the valley below hints of colors were starting to show.

I wanted to take this time to wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I appreciate all my readers and appreciate all the wonderful comments and encouragement this year. Have a wonderful holiday!

Bridal Veil Falls

What do you do when it’s starts to snow in Telluride and your on your Fall Photo Tour? Well you get in your 4WD off-road vehicle and head up to the box canyon behind Telluride and drive up the dirt road to the top of Bridal Veil Falls. Bridal Veil Falls is a 365 Foot waterfall overlooking the town of Telluride. The power plant sits at the top of the falls.  In the winter it becomes frozen and is a huge challenge for ice climbers.

The color on the side of the box canyon was tremendous and so we headed up the off-road trail to the top. It’s a tremendous view, but totally worth the trip. Snow mixed with the fall colors made for some excellent opportunities to capture some unique scenes!  This image is of Bridal Veil falls and the box canyon with a touch of snow and the gorgeous fall colors dotting the side of the canyon.
