Ripshin Lake

OK they all can't be stunning shots but some of the simplest are full of memory.


I'm on a ruin kick the last couple of days!

Chaco Culture

I admit a deep fascination and love for old ruins.

Bausch & Lomb Criterion -minus the dust.

Remember this is a beginners photo blog and beginners use what they have on hand. In this case I'm putting into service a 25 year old Bausch & Lomb Criterion telescope but I'm adding in a Kenko 1.4 teleconverter to get just a little more reach. I'm satisfied considering this moon was dropping fast plus its great getting this vintage mirror lens out of the closet.


Group Light Painting

Let the group become part of the creative process :)

Glechoma hederacea

So what is Glechoma hederacea? Who cares right? This is a photo blog and not a course in botany. The goal here is to take a boring mundane plant and zip it off the whicket....that is make it so you can actually touch it in this picture. It's also an opportunity to use Topaz Deluxe and Nik to bring the .raw to life :)

The North Arch

This is the north arch of the Big South Forks Twin Arches. It's also a great opportunity to play with DXO Optics 8 software.


We love to explore but sometimes it's in the backyard.

Big South Fork Twin Arches Loop

This past weekend we spent four days in the Big South Fork on the 2012 Reunion Hike and Hang.
