Here’s the result of a Christmas card shoot from last week. Our good friends Patty and Shannon saw this idea/composition on Pinterest somewhere and wanted something similar for their card this year.
What do you think?

Day 5 / 5 – #5dayblackandwhitechallenge, nominated/challenged by Steve Parker.
This image was captured this past September up in the Clear Creek Reservoir canyon on the way to Winfield, just south of Twin Lakes, Colorado when I was out capturing the #ColoradoGold. I believe this cabin is the Davis cabin, situated right alongside County Road 390 near Vicksburg.
This is an HDR black and white image. Processed in #Lightroom and Photomatix Pro.
This concludes my 5-day Black and White Challenge. It’s been fun and I’ve seen a lot of excellent imagery as a result of this challenge. In parting, I’d like to nominate Mark Mortensen and Scott Carlin to post one BW image/day for five days. And each day nominate someone new to carry this challenge on…. Participation is entirely optional, but I encourage you to try.

Today’s image was made about 2 miles north of my house here in Erie on a cold, snowy day back in early February of this year. I love all the negative space the snow adds/hides in this image. Here too are the before and after shots (or in this case, original and b/w) combined into one animated GIF. Something different, cool or whatever…

Day 2 / 5 Black and White Photo Challenge, nominated/challenged by Steve Parker.
One of my favorite locations to shoot – Chautauqua Park in Boulder, home of the Flatirons as these rock faces are named. Here’s to hoping how the Flatirons will look when this arctic blast of cold shivers into Colorado this week. This image was captured in early February 2011, and, if I remember correctly, Kevin Barnes and Steve can verify, the temperature this particular morning was a bitter 5 degrees with a sub-zero wind chill. (What was I thinking, leaving a warm bed?)
Today I nominated/challenged Andy Garza, and April Fischer. It’s optional, but try to post 1 BW image a day for 5 straight days, and each day nominate one+ person to the challenge. Good luck!

Day 3 of 5 – Black and White Challenge
This image comes from Monument Valley at a locale known as “Ford’s Point” named after the Actor/Director John Ford, who filmed several of his films in the valley. John said, “The real star of my Westerns is the land. A Western is all about the land.” – See more here.

And here are the #ColoradoGold Aspens I was fortunate to capture a week later than the earlier post. This is from Panoramic Overlook near Golden Gate Canyon State Park in Colorado.

I want to thank Steve for nominating me for the 5 Day B/W Digital Photo Theme Challenge!
Alrighty then, Day 1 of the # BlackandWhiteChallenge. I captured this image on one of the Worldwide Photowalks (2010) near downtown Denver. All I could think of as I captured this image, was the images of San Francisco de Assisi Mission in Taos, NM (which I want to go see/shoot as well)

And here are the #ColoradoGold Aspens I captured this year. This was the first trip to see them, and I was lucky enough to capture more a week later in early October that I’ll post soon.

Karla has been a long time friend of the family — we’ve known her since our days working at StorageTek in the mid-90s. But the last time I met her son Dylan was when he was but a toddler and now he’s graduating high school! Man I feel old…

Did an impromptu portrait session last week just before Halloween for my Sister-in-law and their infant Asha. Nothing elaborate, but the lighting was beautiful and the scenery quite nice.
