Tractor Row in Fall
Tractor Row in FallJust south of Eugene I saw this row of tractors and waited for the Fall leaves to make it a much better picture. Don't Fall leaves always make it a better picture?
Bob Womack's cabin
Bob Womack's cabinBob Womack, the first person to strike it rich in Cripple Creek, Colorado, lived in this cabin on the edge of town.

Multnomah Falls FrozenMultnomah Falls in the Columbia River Gorge in the Winter.
Almighty Mountains and Happy Little Trees
Almighty Mountains and Happy Little TreesJoseph, Oregon. The peaceful barn is the only spot of color on this image which seems to beg for a black and white treatment.
Crane At Trillium Lake
Crane At Trillium LakeI'm not sure this is a Crane but until I find out for sure that's what I'm calling it. The focus isn't tack sharp but he only stood there for just long enough for me to get this shot.
Welcome Bigfoot
Welcome BigfootDriving backroads you have to keep your eyes open because you'll never know what you'll came across. I almost named this one "Welcome Bigfoot".
Cape Horn
Cape HornThis Cape Horn on the Washington side of the Columbia River. A train tunnel runs the entire length and if you look close you can see a train on both sides in this picture.
Crown Point/Vista House From WA Side
Crown Point/Vista House From WA SideHere is a different perspective of the Vista House on Crown Point. This is what you'll see from the Washington side of the Columbia River.I absolutely love the textures you'll find along the Columbia River Gorge and this picture, taken before the leaves of Spring, captures the little waterfall mostly unseen from the Oregon side.
Head For The Hills
Head For The HillsThese elk are heading for their afternoon bedding grounds while the suns rays warm up the day.
Hunkered Down
Hunkered DownWhen a big storm is coming in sometimes it's best to hunker down and wait it out. These buffalo, or Bison if you prefer, are getting ready for a good snow fall.
Sunrise In The Valley
Sunrise In The ValleyPart of the "Magical Morning" series this shot was taken as the sun came up on a meadow filled with elk. The peak of the elk rut and peak of the Fall colors always combine to create the most beautiful scenes.
Get Off My Lawn
Get Off My LawnTaken during the peak of the mule deer rut this photo tells one of my favorite stories.Seen here is a small forked buck caught in the act of trying to steal a doe from the dominant buck. In a display of complete submission the smaller buck is looking away with body language reenforcing his surrender. Right now he's hoping to become invisible and non-threatening and seems to be saying "no one but us trees here."As I watched this scene play out for almost three hours with the dominant buck constantly chasing away rivals I was reminded of the old timer yelling at the neighborhood kids to "GET OFF MY LAWN!"
The Object of Hope
The Object of HopeSurrounded by dark and death, the object of this picture is distant but obvious.
The Good Shepherd
The Good ShepherdA herd of elk being watched over by the herd bull. This was taken during the peak of the rut and Fall.
Elk In Pond
Elk In PondElk in int Fall in the Rocky Mountains—always a good picture opportunity.
Time Does Not Heal All Wounds
Time Does Not Heal All WoundsI took many pictures of this old ranch, lots of buildings and old fencing but this was the only image I liked.
Yak It Up
Yak It UpOne of three pictures I took on this snowy day. This one of yaks looks like creatures straight from a Star Wars movie. The other two, "As Seen From A Distance Through Snow and Fog" and "Made For Snow" might make a nice collage.

Tri Falls
Tri FallsThis is one of the most beautiful water falls I have ever seen. I came across it going over Lolo Pass. I wanted to see if I could get a better shot of it a couple weeks later but the water flow had slowed so much the upper/longer falls couldn't be seen anymore.After doing some extra post-production on this image I believe I have what is an acceptable image—for now.
Lawn Ornament

"As Seen From A Distance Through Fog And Snow"
"As Seen From A Distance Through Fog And Snow"Captured far away through the fog in a light snow fall makes this image of antelope look like a watercolor.
An Evening Feeding
An Evening FeedingAs the evening sun was setting I caught this herd of elk grazing on their way to their nighttime bedding grounds.
Old Friends In The Fall
Old Friends In The FallSeen from the other side when riding the Cripple Creek and Victor Narrow Gauge Railroad, these two cars can be some peoples favorite sight.

Made For Snow
Made For SnowThe more I look at this image the more I like it.The dark bison contrast well in the washed out background of the snow and grass and the emptiness beyond recalls days of untarnished freedom.
Pelicans
PelicansA different looking photo than I normally do but these pelicans are wildlife none the less.

Hey look—cows!Although they are just cows I thought it was an interesting composition.

Tension
TensionThey pretend they don't see each other but the tension in the air is thick.These two bull elk were were part of a group of about two hundred elk in this meadow on this particular morning.

Pikes Peak—When Snow and Leaves Collide
Pikes Peak—When Snow and Leaves CollideAt 9000 feet the first snow storm can often come when the Fall leaves are still on the trees.Here I knocked on the door of a stranger's house to ask permission to take this picture as it had the best view I could find.
A Drive Down Shelf Road Collage
A Drive Down Shelf Road CollageA well known road in Cripple Creek where many gold seekers congregated in hopes of striking it rich.
The Witness Tree
The Witness TreeThis tree has three things going for it—it's growing right out of a rock, it has a candy-cane twirly trunk, it only has branches at the top like a palm tree. Put all three things together and you have an interesting tree.After I took this photo a logging company logged this area, they left this tree but took the rest of the forest so only an ugly background remains. I was hoping to come back and get a better picture of this but glad I've gotten what I did.
Winter Cometh
Winter ComethAn early HDR attempt of mine, I plan on reprocessing this image and taking out the HDR artifacts that plague this otherwise good shot.
Closed For Business
Closed For BusinessThis is one of my favorite shots, an old abandoned store in the ghost town of St. Elmo in Colorado.You can still see dust covered things on the shelves which tells an interesting story but the big surprise (for me) was the snow covered forest and mountain behind me that blends perfectly from the shelves on the inside to the top of the window.
