I love a good blue sky day ... but there's nothing like the drama that some low hanging clouds can add to an image. I especially like the contrast between the clouds at the top and the dark pine trees below. Taken near Kendrick, ID in the panhandle of Idaho.

Elevation: 1,680 feet
f/13.0, 1/60 sec., 46 mm, ISO 200

Another favorite photo from last week's trip to the Grand Canyon ... this image was set-up with some brilliant sunshine behind me and a new set of snow showers appearing over the North Rim. I still can't believe how blessed I feel to have witnessed what is already an amazing scene but to have the added beauty of new snow as well. 

Elevation: 7,304 feet

With almost 5 million visitors annually to the Grand Canyon, I felt privileged and blessed to be one of the few that got to see it in its winter glory this past week. A foot of snow blanketed the area the day before I arrived and it made an already amazing sight all that more beautiful and amazing.

"Little Molas Lake"

I stopped over at Little Molas Lake yesterday while driving around the San Juan Skyway to photograph Little Molas Lake. I couldn't find the right shot from the ground so I decided to send the GoPro up for an aerial perspective (as if 10,900 ft wasn't high enough). It was a good idea ... until I nearly lost the quadcopter. I seriously couldn't see it anymore! Fortunately my sidekick and I were able to use the phone app to see what it was seeing and eventually bring it back into orbit and a safe return. Picture turned out nice though.

"Darkness on the Courthouse"
Some pretty awesome storm clouds moved across Courthouse Mountain east of Ridgway and Ouray, CO last night. Nothing like a country road, a farmer's field, and a little mother nature to help create a great photo opportunity.

Spring runoff hit its peak this past week which means it's a great time of the year to go chasing waterfalls! I captured this one after a short hike from Hwy 550 on the back side of Coal Bank Pass north of Durango this past Saturday.

Elevation: 10,307 feet
Time: Not too early for photography! (5:30 am)

This view of the Grand Canyon comes from the east side near its beginning. I love the contrast of the snow on the rim vs. the barren landscape of the canyon below. The snow is so smooth and soft vs. the harsh details of the canyon wall. Such an awesome place to visit and photograph!

I also like how the foreground (snow and plant material) kind of mimic what is going on in the sky at the top of the image in color and texture with the canyon dividing the middle in stark contrast. Nice job!

"Solitary Confinement"

If I ever run away, I think I would run away to a place like this ... a little log cabin in the middle of nowhere (near Silverton, CO).

"Cabin at Priest Lake"

Took an evening hike last night at Priest Lake, south of Telluride, CO. The fish were jumping, a deer passed by, and the setting was perfect.

Introduction
I enjoy … the pain of running, the solitude of hiking, the serenity of camping, and the thrill of canoeing. I capture my memories via journals, scrapbooks, and videos. I'm also passionate about my latest hobby: photography. [shameless plug: www.facebook.com/elev8tedphotography]

I married my eternal companion 20 years ago and our teenage son makes a family of 3. Oh ... and  I'd love to see a tornado someday, but not in my backyard.

We chose to eat here because of their gluten-free menu. We opted for the pizza. Maybe I haven't had a lot of gluten-free food before so hard to say if that's how all gluten-free pizza is supposed to taste - but the pizza was relatively thin. However, there were a ton of toppings, all of which tasted great! The place was a little loud, but the service was great. The right kind of waiter that is there just often enough to check on you but not hovering over you either. The atmosphere was alright - nothing spectacular but still a good place to eat if you're in town.

Great small town diner atmosphere. Some of the best country fried steak we've had! Portions were large and the maple syrup was even warmed up. Service was okay... not the friendliest but not horrible either. All in all a great place for a Saturday breakfast.

Not a bad place to stay overall. The prices were pretty reasonable for Ouray. We stayed in a "suite" but it was no bigger than my living room at home. Narrow room that made it awkward to get around the bed to go to the bathroom. The kitchenette was nice though and had everything that we needed. Keep in mind though that the kitchen sink also doubles as the bathroom sink! Satellite TV was nice but the TV was small and up in the corner of the room making it difficult to see. Staff was nice; what little we had to deal with them. All in all, a nice play to stay ... but I'll probably stay somewhere else next time just for variety and see if there's something better out there.

A nice state park not too far off the beaten path. Conveniently located down a short dirt-road, it's not hard to find. If you're planning on camping, the entry fee system can be confusing. One has to pay for the park entrance ($7 in one envelope) as well as the camping fee ($16 in a separate envelope). It would be better if there was just one envelope. Regarding the camping experience, there's one main campground near the dam and then a couple of other quiet locations around on the west side of the lake. The main campground is amongst tall pines. However, there are no scenic views of the La Plata Mountains or the lake itself. Clean restroooms, spacious camping sites, and a nice park near the pay station.

Cool cafe in the heart of Ridgway, CO. Greta decor, great environment. Our waitress was nice but almost "overly nice." She tried to take our food away from us before we were done eating on two occasions. We both opted for Mexican dishes and we were not disappointed! They were delicious and I was impressed with the portions too! All in all, a great place to eat ... a place I would go back to in a heartbeat.

Not bad for one wanting to satisfy a BBQ craving. But having spent the past several years in Kansas City, this wasn't the same as what I was used to. Awesome atmosphere though and the ladies behind the counter were especially nice.

A great place to worship and improve your relationship with Jesus Christ. Family centered worship with warm, inviting members. Visitors welcomed!
