San Juan Mountains Wildflower Bloom – Summer 2018

Despite the severe drought and the 416 Fire still active but not presently threatening structures, some higher alpine regions in the San Juan Mountains are nearly peaked with wildflowers right now with most public lands open.

Thanks for viewing!

Winter Fresh

The the lack of snow this winter has been unprecedented Making January and February one of SW Colorado’s driest months on record… This time last year, we were breaking the all time record for snowfall.  Two extremes only a year apart.

Recently we finally received such much needed snowfall so I didn’t waste anytime taking advantage of it.  I went out in the middle of it soaking in the large flakes which seemed to strange as the temperatures have been springlike most of the winter so far.  Plants that usually die off in December are still going strong.

Well after Sunset the Snow had stopped Leaving behind a beautiful white glow. I was atop a local mountain taking it all in with the city light below reflecting off the low hanging clouds creating a unique reddish glow.

The  next morning after the storm is when the featured picture was taken.  The storm had gone but it left behind a thick fog layer that is unusual in our area. When I first arrived, everthing around me was completely shrouded.  Then as the sun was starting to rise, the fog started to quickly lift which only left me a short time to capture this rare beauty.  As soon as the trees started appearing all around me I started clicking away playing with different exposures that best portrayed what I was witnessing.

It was a peaceful morning, which provided for a unique experience  not often seen in the San Juan Mountains of SW Colorado.

Solar Eclipse 2017

This was the perspective from my vantage point high up in the San Juan Mountains of SW Colorado. It clouded up during the peak but fortunately a little hole opening up in the heavens and showcased the crescent sun barely visible seen in the upper center section of the photo. The darkness in the middle of the day was like nothing I had ever experienced. Totally different then just an overcast day. You could tell something unique was occurring… This photo was shot during the peak of the eclipse.
