Mountain Goat in Flowers

This mountain goat was a quick shot as he quickly strolled through a open area of flowers. I was lucky to be able to position myself below him for this photograph.

Rainbow Clouds

Photographed from the ski lift while skiing at Arapahoe Basin in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. The thin blown clouds looking like smoke were cool enough, but then the sun shinning through causing a rainbow of color was even more cool.

Lonley Goat

This lonley lady mountain goat (or big horn sheep, hard to tell with the females) seemed a bit lost when i found her standing in a meadow of wild flowers. Photographed on Mount Evans in the Colorado Rocky Mountains.

Itchy Moose

Photographed near Rocky Mountain National Park, this young bull moose was caught scratching himself, much like my cat does... using his back hoof to scratch his ears.

Cranes and Mountain Peaks

This long distance shot of flying whooping cranes was photographed near the Great Sand Dunes National Park in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado. The snow capped peaks in the distance made an amazing backdrop to these birds which migrate through this area every spring.

This long distance shot of flying whooping cranes flying through the sunset haze was photographed near the Great Sand Dunes National Park in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado. The snow capped peaks in the distance made an amazing backdrop to these birds which migrate through this area every spring.

Curious Red Fox

This fox was more than friendly. He came within ten feet of me to watch as I was practicing my photography. A very kind model indeed.

Bull Elk in Pines

I stalked this bull elk through the woods of Rocky Mountain National Park for about a half hour until I was able to capture this perfectly framed image through the pines.

Three Horses

This three horses seemed to be nearly trained as models. I did not set them up this way, they chose to do it on their own when I called to them trying to get their attention. Photographed near the Great Sand Dunes National Park in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado. The snow capped peaks in the distance made an amazing backdrop to this beautiful horse.

Rustic Tractor

An old school tractor rusting in the field made for a real cool image. I found it on my way to Independence Pass in the Colorado Rocky Mountains.
