Grand Canyon – Rock Walls

These are many of the photographs I took of the rock walls along Bright Angels Creek.  Most of the photographs were taken close to the wall and a few were taken from across the creek.  So much of the rock has silica which makes the image look grainy.  I was fascinated with the variety of...

Trunks 2018

Never underestimate the potential of a dreary day. Remember my post “Montana Road Trip II (part 3)“?  I had driven back to Glacier National Park in hopes of catching some autumn color but I was met with a the most dreary day.  It had me very depressed that I would not find anything worth photographing. ...

Ferns 2018

Remember my post "Montana Road Trip II (part 3)"?  I had driven back to Glacier National Park in hopes of catching some autumn color but I was met with a the most dreary day.  It had me very depressed that I would not find anything worth photographing.  Boy, was I wrong. The super gray lighting... Continue Reading →

Grand Canyon, The Hike Out

Knock-knock, “It’s 5:00” and the door shuts.  For a couple of minutes, I laid there to finish my slumber and to visualize my hike out.  My visit had been nice but I was ready to head back.  Two other dorm mates were getting ready for the 5:30 breakfast so I got up washed, dressed and...

Grand Canyon, Phantom Ranch

My legs, in particular my knees were at their end and turning my hike down the South Kaibab trail into an endurance test.  I had devoured my lunch.  As I advanced forward 50 to 100 yards at a time before needing a rest, I was still a good hour from the Colorado River. I had... Continue Reading →

Composition Lesson – August Lake 1990

“August Lake” was about that quiet early morning hours in northeastern Ohio when fog raises from the warm lake water as the summer nights begin to cool foreshadowing autumn and the end of summer.  I was looking back through my image files and came across the original chrome (aka slide) of “August Lake”.  I first...

Now What? Confinement.

Have you ever had a dream?  A dream of achieving a goal in your personal life or career, and then found that you accomplished it.  Or perhaps you realized the dream was more about the journey and not the destination, and now the journey is over.  But for what ever the reason, you come to...

Birthday Drive 2018

I decided to get out of Denver and drive the roads I first saw 40 years ago as I was nearing my twenty-first birthday.  I had left college in January of that year because they would not allow me to take courses in my chosen major of Radio & TV.  You see, in order to... Continue Reading →

Montana Road Trip II (part 2)

I woke up the following morning in Sheridan Wyoming.  The previous evening I spent two hours backtracking up to Casper to get on I-25 which was the faster route to Glacier although now it would only save me two hours instead of four off the route I had first headed-out on.  After a quick hotel...

Montana Road Trip II (part 1)

Over the first weekend of October 2018, I took a road trip from Denver, Colorado to Glacier National Park.  The dates for this trip were first set for the end of September but job and life required that I postpone it a couple of weeks.  Prior to leaving, I checked the weather maps and saw...

Rock Moss Review by LensCulture

Rock Moss is a series of 14 images I took while visiting Glacier National Park in July 2018. It was a rainy day when I came across areas that had exposed rock with contrasting green vegetation. It reminded me of my Loveland Pass 2014 series of lichens on the continental divide and a close-up photo... Continue Reading →

Glacier 2018

These are a few more images I captured on my July Road Trip. The days were cloudy with rain off-and-on throughout the days.  It made for some great images but you would never know it by just looking through the lens.  This is where composition comes into play.  If the image is not well composed...
