Sunrise at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal

I was feeling the urge to get outside today, so I made a quick sunrise trip to our Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge. And it turned out to be just what I needed. The back/north 8-mile loop had just opened and lucky for me, the bison were grazing in their north pen, so the ONLY way to see them in good light was to drive the loop. The bison shots below were captured during the last quarter mile of that loop, but no way to get to them without traveling the 7.75 miles around.

Surf and Sunset

Here are a few more images from my stay at the Bacara Resort and Spa in Santa Barbara last September. I had a few sunsets to myself and I’d wonder on down to the shore looking for these types of compositions, especially with the 10-24 wide angle lens I had rented for the launch event.

It was a very peaceful excursion, although I got kind of worried as the tide was rolling in and every 4-5 wave would crash a little closer to my gear.

What do you think of these?

Sunflowers Near DIA

After much searching and questioning my social media friends, we did locate a Sunflower field out near Denver International Airport and got some time in front of these beauties before they turned sour. This was right off of 120th Street near Gun Club Road, just east of E-470.
