My Annual Photo Trek To Telluride, Colorado

I just got back from visiting my favorite place in all of Colorado--Telluride, elevation: 8,750 feet.
The box canyon in which it peacefully rests reminds me of some parts of Switzerland.

As you can see from just these three images, it is an awesome place and area to visit. It has skiing, hiking, 4-wheeling, bicycling, mountain boarding (not for me!), shopping, great dining, annual Jazz Festival, and much more. One of the views I have included is from 10,500 feet, looking down at Telluride. If you can ever make it there, you will not want to leave.

Oh yeah, the colors in and around Telluride, as always this time of year, were awesome...

Enjoy my photo art interpretations.

What I mean when I say, "I see something."

One of the images on my website ( is that of a wind farm in Colorado. I got up so early in the morning that the sun had not even broken the horizon. A brave friend of mine (brave in that he dared to leave with me at 5:30 in the morning) was with me at the time. I passed this scene when it was still dark, when I made the comment, "Hmm. I see something." I turned around because I "saw" something before my eyes saw it.

This is what I saw. I love to capture those moments in time when the sun begins to paint the earth...

I'll share more later about my photo art style and approach. In the meantime, enjoy.
