Bison graze in the shadow of the Rockies

A brilliantly clear day provided for some great viewing of the Colorado Front Range.  This image taken at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge showcases the beauty of the area.  With the bison grazing in the foreground, the snow-covered mountains behind and blue sky above make for a stunning image.

The last sunrise of 2013

The last sunrise of 2013 proved to be an absolutely gorgeous one.  This image was taken at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge just before the sun peeked over the horizon.

Christmas Eve sunrise brings blue and red colors

Normally sunrises (or sunsets) without a decent amount of clouds aren’t particularly dramatic.  On this morning I went to the Rocky Mountain Arsenal expecting more clouds but when I arrived, they had all moved off to the east.  Nevertheless, the sunrise proved quite nice being lit brilliant red at the horizon and deep blue above.

An ‘industrial strength’ sunrise

The area I work is normally not particularly photogenic but on this morning it worked out well.  The sunrise was absolutely brilliant and the crane and other industrial equipment worked well as props.  My only regret is that I had to take this with my point-and-shoot rather than my SLR.

A fall moon

As we were heading farther into autumn, the leaves were golden and would soon be gone.  I went for a walk around Eastlake Reservoir soon after sunrise to attempt to capture the colors.

Looking up, I saw the moon and our usual dark blue Colorado sky. Framed with some golden leaves, I think it made for a pleasant image.

Fall colors in Pike National Forest

Fall in the Colorado high country brings the changing of the colors of the leaves as aspen trees turn golden.  This image captures the stunning variety of colors from the golden leaves and the green pines to the blue sky above.

The Collegiate Peaks with a gorgeous blue Colorado sky

Colorado’s high country of course offers stunning scenery.  On this summer day we were in the Taylor Park area exploring on our ATVs.  In the foreground is Lily Pond, aptly named as the entire surface is covered in lilies. In the background, the Collegiate Peaks rise high above timberline and bright blue Colorado skies add drama.

A golden landscape with blue Colorado skies

Sunset at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge painted the landscape with a golden hue on this winter evening. Coupled with the typical, gorgeous blue Colorado skies, the image is warm and inviting.

Old west meets new

Taken at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife refuge, this was an image I had seen in my mind for a long time. The weather cooperated with beautiful, clear blue skies and the bison was kind enough to position itself perfectly. This to me is an iconic Denver image.

Order a print of this image.
