In the Monteverde Cloud Forrest everything was so lush and green. To my surprise the flowers there were small and delicate. This was one of the larger flowers I saw there. The crisp dainty yellow on the black background makes this a strong image. These little delicate flowers left me wondering how they could survive any big rainstorms.
Costa Rica 2009
On this day driving to Wrangell – St. Elias National Park the skies were bright and clear. I was also lucky enough to catch this scene right at the peak of fall season. It is the colors, including the red on the mountain side that I enjoy. The landscape driving to and from Valdez contained every color imaginable during the second weekend in September 2009.
Up on top of Mount Evans with friends we spotted two baby mountain goats. One was shy and hiding behind a rock, but this one allowed me to take some photos. The parents were not far away and were constantly watching to make sure I didn’t get too close. Once they stated heading my direction I had to leave, but before that I managed to get this shot.
The Baths at the Real Alcazar was something I almost missed. At the end of a very long day I discovered the door going downstairs underground from the gardens. With the arches, lighting and reflection I could not pass up taking photos of this site.
After a very dry beginning of March, the Colorado ski areas finally got over a foot of snow with a blizzard. They needed every inch of it. This was right after the storm subsided and there was still blowing snow atop of Loveland pass. Early in the morning, the sky was lit up with an orange-pink fire, blowing snow, and here were a few skiers that were all set to take advantage of the fresh powder and great conditions in Colorado.
This picture was taken at La Alhambre in Granada, Spain. La Alhambre has existed since the 9th century. The Palace at Alhambre is square on the outside and circular on the inside. Many musical performances have been recorded here for media. This picture is a favorite of mine because of the architectural lines and the story it tells of the two meeting at the bottom of the staircase.
This photo was taken in the old mountain village of Ronda in Malaga, Spain. Ronda is divided in two by the Guadalevín River creating a large gorge that can only be crossed by one tall stone bridge. This is an image of one side of the town looking over the gorge to the other. The countryside along with the never changing town structure made this town incredibly picturesque.
This photo of the Denver Capitol building I like for the framing of this picture. The tree and the arm of the tree that reaches up frames the top, while the walkway lighted by lamps provide framing on the left hand side. Between both of these I feel they draw your eye to the capitol building toped with the red light.
On a very unusual crisp, clear and warm October night in Denver, this photo was taken of Union Station. Here I am trying to show another angle of a familiar landmark of Denver.
This photo was taken in September in the evening at the Denver Center of Performing Arts in Denver, Colorado. Seconds earlier this scene was void of people, but as a show had just gotten out, the underpass suddenly filled with a crowd and I was able to capture this shot. The exposure time on this was 4 seconds, with an ISO of 100. I enjoyed the effect turning people into almost ghost-like figures in this shot.
