The Backyard

September 10, 2009 Leave a comment

Went for a short hike Tuesday morning to iron out some details with a potential business partner. Like all things Colorado, we decided to skip the coffee shop and meet at 5 a.m. instead. Our destination was nothing more than a short hike through the Rockies. Needless to say the chat was successful on multiple levels.

Shots are from Indian Peaks. Enjoy.

Took yesterday to shoot b-roll in Rocky Mountain National Park for Backpacker magazine. Minus the rain it was one hell of a day.

Sometimes You Just Need To Go To The Mountains…

November 3, 2008 1 comment

Turned 26 yesterday and finally realized I no longer have anything more to look forward to. (Minus Social Security and being able to call myself a geezer.) Okay so It’s not all bad, but it was a day for reflection, mountain air, and some unseasonably warm November temperatures. Girl is a friend and ironman badass, so the day was experienced at a good clip, with lots of excellent refreshing conversation.

The Hills Are On Fire… Colorado Aspens

Gave up sleeping in on Saturday to head up to Rocky Mountain National Park and soak in the Aspens one last time this fall.  Rumor has it a huge storm is headed our way and the leaves might not last past midweek. So please enjoy.

PS: The girl is Jessie — a good friend from DU who I love to explore the woods with.

Rob Haggart, the former Director of Photography for Men’s Journal and Outside Magazine, posted an interesting link today on his blog A Photo Editor. The link directs to Aurora Photos, a stock agency looking for a new way to highlight their already deep catalog and photographers. Take a moment and check it out if you have some time. The images are powerful to say the least.

Rocky Mountain National Park – 21-Mile Loop

August 11, 2008 3 comments

God I love this place. Saturday was a day of solitude, a day of inner conversations, working things out, and praying about what’s next. I woke at 4:45 am. and immediately cursed myself for dreaming up such an idea. Just short of an hour later I was at the trailhead, basking in early morning light, cinching up my boots and starting the GPS track. The first three miles were the worst, and more than once I almost turned back to watch TV, read and relax. But alas I didn’t. Here are some shots from my beautifully long day hike, which took me up, over, around, and through everything Rocky Mountain National Park has to offer.
