Million Dollar Highway

The Million Dollar Highway runs from Silverton to Ouray.  This scenic drive is through the San Juan National Forrest has breath taking scenery.  There are several waterfalls right Red Mountain Pass and many others accessible by short hikes.  The old Yankee Girl Mine also begs for picture to be taken.

Animals

The Iguanas were complete hams on Isla Mujeres, Mexico. They were begging for more shots and it seemed they almost posed on demand both in downtown and around the island.

Deer and Rabbits – This was a fortunate experience. Hiking up at Red Rocks in the summer evening, as the sun was just starting to set, I came upon a dozen or more deer and over 18 rabbits as I hiked in one evening. With the warm afternoon light these are the results.

Black Bear – This was a juvenile black bear. It was late afternoon and this bear was looking for dinner. A few minutes later he threatened a fisherman who was cornered against a cliff and had nowhere to go besides in the river which unfortunately would not have helped him. Thankfully at the last minute (within 6 feet away) the bear backed down and retreated up the rocks and cliff where he came.

Orca/Killer Whales – while touring Prince William Sound I was fortunate to not only come a pod of Orca Whales, but instead there were at least 3 pods. As one came up and went back into the water another pod would start surfacing.

Salmon – I felt I had to include this shot as it was two salmon jumping. One was just re-entering the water as the other was at the peak of its jump and flipping. This was also taken in Prince William Sound Alaska.

Harbor Seals and Sea Otters – Both of these creatures seem to have human like personalities. They seem to talk to each other and it seems that you can read each emotion as if they were human. The Sea Otters were amazingly shy as we approached them on the icebergs in Prince William Sound.

California

The San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge is one of the most photographed places, but this my version. This evening shot with the bridge, at a diagonal, and the San Francisco Bay looking like chocolate in black and white.

Great Sand Dunes

I really enjoyed the untouched beauty of the Great Sand Dunes. I tried to show the beauty in the shapes that occurred there naturally. The sky was clear and throughout the day the Sand Dunes would take on different shapes with the wind and shadows.

September Photo

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.
