It’s that time of year again when the temperature drops along with the leaves from trees and the stadium lights burn late into the night. Sadly, I have been at the desk more than I have been able to make pictures. Here is a collection of photos from zero week football. Enjoy.
Sometimes it is good to step away from my DSLRs and get back to something that seems less disposable. Last weekend I took my Fuji Instax 200 Wide to Lyons, Colorado on a Boulder Area Photo Walk meetup. All photos shot with my Instax camera then photographed with my Fuji X100s set to 1:1 format ratio. Enjoy.
A couple of weeks ago I drove out to Weld County to shoot some of the many oil and gas drilling operations, wells and machinery that has sprung up across the front range. I was looking to create some iconic images that could be used to illustrate upcoming stories about the industry and issues surrounding it. I also wanted to include a piece of the geography that would link it to my coverage area. Enjoy.
I’m not a great landscape photographer but every once in a while I pretend I am. I traveled up to Peak-to-Peak Highway, a short distance from my house, to make some pictures of the changing Aspen leaves. Every day that I am able to live and work in Colorado I am thankful. Enjoy.
