Day 365… WOW, what a journey! I spent the entire day taking photos from each of my favorite locations…places I have come to know and love over the past year. I started out in my hometown, went to the top of the Peak and had a world famous “Pikes Peak...

Despite the 97 mph on top of the Peak today and the intense haze that filled the air, I am glad I made it to the summit to get this shot! Many people don’t know that Zebulon Pike wasn’t the first person to summit Pikes Peak and that when he tried, he...

You’re probably looking at this picture and wondering where the Peak is and why I took a picture of a giant Prairie Dog… both great questions, but that is no Prairie Dog, that is the infamous Pikes Peak Yellow-Bellied Marmot. There is no way I could...

I had my entire day and picture all planned out, but about 7pm I realized that no matter what picture I had planned on getting (and actually got) earlier, the Peak had a completely different plan for me. They opened the Pikes Peak Highway all the way to the summit for...

When I saw fog this morning I was totally caught off guard, but figured it would burn off quickly and I would just have to wait it out, However, the fog just gave way to clouds and gray skies… so I had to wait much longer than I expected. I ended up getting out...

May 25th ~ 365 Days of Pikes Peak

We’ve had so many days of snow, rain, and clouds in the past two weeks that I was on a mission to capture a little sunshine and some of the bright green colors that are covering Colorado Springs right now. It is Spring after all! I’ve wanted to get this...

May 24th ~ 365 Days of Pikes Peak

What a challenging day! It was as though the Peak looked at me today and said “No free rides, buddy… you’re going to have to work for it!”  No matter how hard I tried, the fresh snow and flat clouds made the Peak look like a ghost in the fog....

Today was a beautiful, typical day for late May, and I hope days like this keep coming all summer long! When the clouds build the way they did today, it becomes a race with the clock to get into a spot that really shows off the play of light and shadows… and...

May 22nd ~ 365 Days of Pikes Peak

I was given permission to hike some very remote private property today, and with the weather as unsettled as it has been this week I thought a sunrise shot would be my best option. I had to get out on the trail about an hour before the sun came up and it was...
