Some PHOTOS taken yesterday. A nice summer day spent along Clear Creek near Empire, Colorado. I had to use some HDR (high dynamic range) photography tricks because of the bright daylight and dark shadows. Later in the day it became partly cloudy which helped in taking good photos without HDR.
Some PHOTOS I took at El Rancho de Las Golondrinas near Santa Fe, New Mexico. This place is a preserved historic site.
Here are some PHOTOS that I took at Tent Rocks. This park is located about half way between Santa Fe and Albuquerque New Mexico, a little ways west from I-25. The park gets its name from some tent (tee-pee) shaped formations. The park also features a beautiful slot canyon.
Here are some PHOTOS I took in Plaza Blanca near Santa Fe, NM in 2003. Plaza Blanca is a bit of a difficult place to find. The turn off from the main road is unmarked, and then you continue on to a dirt road on some private property to get to the trail head. You can look it up on Google Earth with latitude 36.233390 and longitude -106.301385.

Click HERE to get to the photos. I just got back from a trip to Moab, Utah. I went with a group of 29 plein air painters. Plein air is a French expression which means “in the open air” where you set up your easel outside to paint. A few of us in the group were not painters so we went off to hike or take photographs. The first few photos were taken while driving to Moab. There’s a lot of space between Fruita, Colorado and Moab, Utah. Make sure your gas tank is full and your bladder is empty. The bulk of the photos were taken at Dead Horse Point and Canyon Lands. We had great weather, blue sky and 80 degrees, though the blue sky isn’t the best for photography.

Click HERE to get to the photos. All of these photos were taken in Arches National Park. I wished that I lived in Moab so that I could go back to Arches over and over and photograph it in various
light and weather conditions.
Click HERE to get to the photos. There are photos taken along the Colorado River at Lower Onion Creek and Big Bend. Opposite from Lower Onion Creek is a rock formation known as Fisher Towers.
Some recent PHOTOS including last night’s sunset and eclipse of the moon. Also a shot of rock climbers in Eldorado Canyon and of Zaphod climbing up my shelves.
Went with my friend to RABBIT MOUNTAIN. This is a place he goes frequently to monitor the raptor population which includes families of eagles.
