Steve and Andrea joined me in LoDo for their engagement photos, and with the happiness I was witness to with this fun couple, it’s a good thing their wedding is just a couple of months away! Ahhh, love!
Hueco Tanks, TX is one of the best bouldering areas in the country. It’s a great winter destination for climbing, with sunny desert weather. Here are a few shots I took of the Cassin Domino bouldering crash pad, along with some of the local scenery.
Here are a few highlights from the grueling 2012 ISMF North American Ski Mountaineering Championships, held in Crested Butte, CO this year. C.A.M.P. was a sponsor of this randonee ski race, where the athletes use skins to go uphill, plus alpine ski downhill. This year, the race added a new component, mountaineering, on a ridge line overlooking Crested Butte. The event was held over a two-day period, with a sprint race the first day and endurance race the second. These athletes are incredible, hiking 5000+ vertical feet on their skis, plus tackling the technical mountaineering on the ridge line in ski boots and effortlessly descending icey double blacks. The first place winner completed the second day’s endurance course in under 2 and a half hours!
A wheel-gripping, icy drive through Colorado’s mountains rewarded me with these majestic views of Monarch Pass and Telluride, Colorado.
Alaska has unrivaled quiet beauty and sure adventure, two things that made me jump out of bed with the morning sun. These photos were taken in the back country near Seward, where I encountered golden eagles, a black bear crossing a stream, orca whales, sea lions and (to my surprise) jelly fish! Seward is surrounded by mountains, glaciers and dreamy clouds. Here’s to a Happy New Year filled with new beauty and new adventures!
I photographed siblings Grace & Jack in Denver’s RiNo (River North) district near Five Points, and we had a blast just like last year at their portrait session with their mom Jo Anne. The graffiti and wall art are endless here, making for some great backdrops (and great fun).
