CHASING WILDFLOWERS ON THE GRAND MESA
Thursday, August 4, 2022, was another day in the upper 90’s here in western Colorado’s Grand Valley. In addition to that, our roofing project continued unabated, which made for another great day to get out of the house and up to The Grand Mesa. We usually head up to The Grand Mesa during…
AN AFTERNOON AT WESTERN COLORADO BOTANICAL GARDENS
FLOWERS, AND TORTOISE AND LIZARD. OH MY! We’re getting a new roof put on the house, so that’s always fun. Right? Nothing like 100-degree summer temps and 8 hours of hammering and general construction noise to run anyone out of their house for a couple of hours. I decided to head over to The Western…
LIVING THE ENCHANTMENT THROUGH MINDFUL PHOTOGRAPHY
Just FYI, I’ve been recovering from the death of my mother at the end of June, and so I’m posting less frequently. However, I did want to stop by and let you know that I have had an article and some pictures published in the August edition of Science of Mind magazine! The article is…
CRESTED BUTTE, COLORADO
I usually try to make it up to Crested Butte annually, timing my visit for right after the Wildflower Festival in July. This year, the festival was held from July 8 – 17th, so I showed up on the 21st. Why do I do this you ask? I don’t like crowds. It’s a long day…

So, this time, I thought I would share with you what the experience was like touring lower Antelope Canyon. The photos are, in some…
UPPER ANTELOPE CANYON
PAGE, ARIZONA JUNE 2022 Allow me to begin by stating that Antelope Canyon near Page, Arizona, is undoubtedly one of the great natural wonders of the world. I’ve wanted to go since I first became aware of it by following various landscape photographers, about a decade ago. Antelope Canyon may be old news now, but…
MESA ARCH & DEADHORSE POINT STATE PARK (UTAH)
John set the alarm for 3:30am. Of course, that means that my body wakes me up at 3:15am. To some people this may seem strange, but it’s normal for me. So, I awoke at 3:15am and dressed for my sunrise photo shoot at Mesa Arch in Canyonlands National Park in Utah.
PALISADE IN SPRINGTIME
Springtime in Palisade is a natural spectacle not to be missed! One of the things that originally drew me to this area, was the prospect of being near the orchards that Palisade is famous for.
