Last week I took one of my tour clients up to Hanging Lakes in Glenwood Canyon. In the summer this unique lake and waterfalls is abnormally lush with green and flowers. A real treat within the arid canyons of the area. In the winter it turns into a surreal wall of frozen drizzled icecycles. Very cool.

So check it out. Earlier this month I was contacted by Kenny Chesney's promoter. They wished to purchase one of my images of Red Rocks to commemorate Kenny's three night sellout a couple years ago. It seems that someone forwarded this image to Mr. Chesney and he loved it. So they are going to present it to him as a gift.
The contact made mention of it being a wall hanging. In his house? I don't know… that would be cool.
I hope Mr. Chesney enjoys his photo. I'm quite pleased he likes my work.
It's that time of year again. Love is in the air. While most of nature seems to get it's viagra boost in the Springtime, Colorado's big horn sheep are feeling the heat in the chill of late Autumn.
Today Kevin and I headed up near the Georgetown area to see if we could photograph some Big Horns. We found three groups in different locations. I did a bit of hoofing it myself around the cliffside to get some pictures that were not just looking up at them. My fingers were crossed that a big Billy would not take offense to me being on his turf. I don't think I'd have much chance eluding one of these guys on the side of a rock wall.
I was hoping to see some of the males butting heads, but it did not happen. Maybe they've already done there fighting for harems.
Are you getting a new DSLR for Christmas? Maybe you know somebody who enjoys photography as a hobby, but wants to improve. Try buying yourself (or your friend) a gift certificate to our upcoming "Beginner Photography – The fundamentals" Workshop.
This is a great gift for anyone who is looking to learn more about their cameras and how to take better photos.
So I've been a busy boy the past week or two. Running all about the mountains taking folks on photography tours to capture the height of the Fall Aspen color change (which by the way is happening very early this year). I guess the drought conditions are effecting the trees as they are not only turning early, but sporadically. In some areas there are pure gold Aspen stands, right beside fully turned Aspen stands (dead and dry).
Nevertheless, the mountains are still full of lots of amazing color and beauty. If anyone is interested in getting photos of the mountains this Autumn, please contact me ASAP as you are quickly running out of time. I give most of the good locations another week before they start going downhill.

Just got back from the Golden Fine art Festival. It's pretty sweet. I saw some really impressive stuff there. MUCH nicer works than I see at the Cherry Creek Arts Festival. It's going all day long, so if you live in the area, I'd recommend getting on down there.

Seven days after the Aurora Cinema 16 theater shooting in Colorado, the mourners continue to visit the growing memorial across the street. Near 100 degree heat did not keep the community from showing up for the one week anniversary of the slayings.
12 Crosses bear the names and photos of the victims from last week's gunman shooting in Aurora Colorado.
