This above photo was taken during the last snow that we had. It’s finally starting to warm up now and the snow on the mountain side is almost completely gone. Apparently February and March is mud season in this region. It sure is feeling like spring here despite it officially not arriving for more than a month. Sorry to those living in Denver who won’t see spring until probably mid April, at least based off my experience of the typical weather in Denver, but who knows what will happen, this year has been a weird year for weather in Colorado.

There is still lots of snow left and the higher you go around here the more there is

Nature and landscape photographer from Denver metro, Colorado. I also do extensive urban and night time photography. I originally started photography as a means to document my climbs of Colorado's many high mountain peaks, then it evolved from there. The biggest thing about landscape photography is being in nature and capturing those short lived and sublime moments that occur. There is nothing quite like being at a mountain lake feeling that cold mountain air, looking up at those dramatic peaks and spires, or being up late at night looking up at the incredible amount of stars visible from the Earth, something that very few people are able to experience any more this is the true source of my inspiration. I have had several gallery showings including with the Denver Photo Art Gallery owned by renowned nature photographer John Fielder, and a two week exhibit during the Democratic National Convention. I currently have 2 books out in collaboration with other people, plus working on a 3rd one about Loveland Pass region, this last one is still an ongoing project. Plus I have been published from other sources including Smith Southwestern and am a regular contributor in stock with Shutterstock and Dreamstime. I have had large scale corporate sales and numerous individual sales of my photos. This includes numerous photos with the Plenary Group and photos in the home of a well known actor
