Colorado National Monument

Colorado National Monument

A birthday trip to the Western Slope of Colorado this spring. As long as I have lived here in Colorado, there are still so many areas to explore. Colorado National Monument was one such area, that after years of driving by it, we finally planned a trip specifically to see it.

And spring was the perfect time to visit, with few crowds and milder temperatures. The scenery wasn’t too bad, either.

The very first photo of the trip. Book Cliffs from atop Colorado National Monument at sunset.
March in Colorado

March in Colorado

March weather in Colorado can go from one extreme to the other and this past month was no exception. It was one of the snowiest on record and yet we enjoyed 70+ degree days. 

Here are a few photos from March, including a foggy morning at Chatfield State Park after a snow, and birds on a warm afternoon at Crown Hill Park in the suburbs of Denver.

Before sunrise I spotted these trees in dense fog. I stuck around for the fog to begin to lift in order to capture them.

Snowy scenes from around Denver.

It’s been a dry year, so when the snow began to fall recently, it was time to get out and photograph. This series was all taken at night to capture as clean of snow as possible. Plus, it’s easier to stand in the middle of the street for long periods of time without being ran over :). 

This week the warm weather is returning, but with March historically being Colorado’s highest precipitation month, hopefully there will be more opportunities to come. 

So many angles to capture the water tower in Olde Town Arvada. On this particular evening I explored many of them while exploring on foot near my place.
Bison in the Snow

Bison in an early season snow from last fall. I went out that morning in the falling snow not sure what I may find and was delighted when I found a bison herd, easily accessible and in the trees which provided some different photo compositions than I normally take of bison.

Since these photos were taken, Denver has been incredibly dry. While the nice weather has been welcomed at times, hopefully the next couple of months provide additional snow-coated photographic opportunities.

Fall in Acadia National Park – 2020

Fall in Acadia National Park – 2020

After the trip to Rocky Mountain National Park and Grand Teton National Park, I had one more trip left for fall, Acadia National Park. Unlike the others, this wasn’t a road trip and as such it was almost called off to avoid flying. Luckily, everything worked out and we still made the trip, though with a few changes.

Below are a few of my favorites from in and around Acadia National Park this fall.
