Reflections

Another reflection of El Capitan from my trip to YNP back in November 2015. It was a great trip where I was able to reconnect with an old high school buddy named Andy Garza whom I’d worked with in the Village Store for several summers back in the mid-80s — 30 years ago… .

A very appropriate photo on a great time for personal reflection… Enjoy!

Sonia’s Grandkids

Back in early December, Katherine, Tania and their sister-in-laws wanted to get all the grandkids together to photograph them as a Christmas present for Grandma Sonia. Here are a few of the images I got.

El Capitan Reflections

Here’s an image from late in the day last week when the sun was almost set and yet lighting up El Capitan in beautiful light.

Yosemite Valley Chapel

From my recent trip to Mariposa and Yosemite, I stopped to finally capture an image of the Yosemite Valley Chapel. Not the greatest and most dramatic lighting, but still a nice image of the chapel.

A Special Drive

A little teaser of my trip to California’s Yosemite National Park last week while visiting my parents in Mariposa….

The light reflected off of El Capitan really illuminated the south-side drive’s trees and undergrowth spectacularly this crisp November morning.

This could not have been a better trip! I missed meeting up with a few friends, but the trip itself was spectacular.

Alexus Senior Portrait

This just happened here in my neck of the woods this past weekend. More to come from this stunning session with Alexus… The fall colors are spectacular here in Erie!

Longs Peak

While out viewing and filming the Elk rut this year at the Upper Beaver Meadows Trailhead in Rocky Mountain National Park, Steve and I came across this beautifully framed shot of Longs Peak.

Late Bloomers

I finally made it to a large Sunflower patch a friend of mine found out on Gun Club Road near 97th (by DIA) last week. The field was a little bit past prime, but still in very good shape. It was really tough though, having to compose in and around all the smoke from the Western fires.

Another lesson was learned too, about how sensitive the #Sony #a6000 is to focal points and depth of field. When focus precision is required, I think next time I’ll put the camera in manual focus mode and perhaps get better results.

Pregame Warmups

Taken at last night’s Rockies versus Dodgers game at Coors Field. The grounds crew had just cleared the tarp off the field and the player finally had time for warmups on this cold 8th day of May. We’re supposed to have up to 10 inches of snow overnight tonight!
