I have had my eye on this old house for a while. I am not sure who owns it or anything about its life but I always glance at it when I drive by. This place sits on a ranch about five minutes from my house a ways back from the roadside fence. I found […]

Beauty Where I Live

I got to thinking the other day about how I constantly fantasize about travel and taking pictures of exotic places. I actually dream about it. Really. Truth be told though, I am guilty of taking the place I live for granted. I wake up in the morning and see a snow capped 14,000 plus foot […]

After tasting some wedding cake with my son and his fiancee today, I took a drive over to Helen Hunt Falls in Cheyenne Canyon to try and capture a photo featuring moving water. I used a .9 neutral density filter on top of a circular polarizer so I could really slow the shutter down despite […]
