Gary Neptune, founder of Neptune Mountaineering, and me, as I was presenting him with a 16x24" standout print of the portrait I took of him. The photo was taken to accompany an upcoming article in Colorado Mountain Club's Trail & Timberline magazine this summer.

The portrait, also shown here, was presented this past Sunday as Gary was honored by the Boulder Group of Colorado Mountain Club for a lifetime of support to the club.

One print was given to Gary, one print will hang in the Neptune Mountaineering store he founded, and one will be displayed in the CMC Boulder Clubroom.

Stay tuned for more photos of lots of CMC members sharing with Gary their fond memories of him and of the many ways he touched all of our lives. Gary is truly a delightful soul and certainly the most renowned person I've ever had the pleasure to photograph!

I really LOVE this photo. I think the dominant tree in this composition looks uncannily and charmingly like a giraffe!

Mount Blanca and Old Barn, Alamosa, Colorado, near Great Sand Dunes National Park, taken two years ago on spring break. Previously published a black and white conversion of this, but forgot how pretty the colors were, too. This is an HDR tonemapped using Photomatix Pro. Added some interest using +onOne Software   #perfecteffects8 "Russel" Border for a bit of a grungy look.

+DOG LOVERS Worldwide +Robert SKREINER Thanks for tipping me off, I had no idea this wasn't shared publicly, as I share all my posts here on G+. Sharing it here so more people can read this heartwarming "Tail" of Two Kiahs story!  ;-)
Janine Fugere originally shared:
Cheryl Fronczek is a new friend who I met because she came across a post on As Seen by Janine's Photo Blog about my dog Kiah, and me.

Cheryl also has a Blue Heeler she rescued, also named Kiah just like mine. Best of all, she dreams of living in Colorado someday. So we invited them out for a visit!

Here is the As Seen by Janine Photo Blog article which led Cheryl to find us and end up coming for the visit:

These photos tell the "Tail' of Two Kiahs during our crazy week of fun and shenanigans. The photos were taken by both Cheryl and me and are all simply cell phone pics, because with not just one but two crazy cattle dogs on an outing, that is all there is time for!

What a fabulous week! We can't wait for Cheryl & Kiah Lin to come back again, and better still, for them to move here!

Gorgeous photos all around!  Two beautiful dogs ... Kiah Bear really reminds me of my Ripley.  I miss her every single day.

Thanks +Dan Bailey for your comment on this photo. I am very excited that Colorado Mountain Club just ordered two 16x24" standouts of this portrait - one will be displayed in the entry of Neptune Mountaineering and the other will be a gift to Gary Neptune. Each will have a brass plaque which says:

Gary Neptune ~ Founder of Neptune Mountaineering
With Gratitude from the Boulder Group of Colorado Mountain Club
Photography by As Seen by Janine: Eyes of the World Images

They will hopefully be presented to him and to the store in March, depending on when he is in town (he travels a lot). The photo will also appear in CMC's summer issue of Trail and Timberline magazine along with Rick Casey's article about Gary!
Not often do I get the chance to photograph someone I admire as much as Gary Neptune, the founder of Neptune Mountaineering in Boulder, Colorado. Gary is a world-famous mountaineer and a long-time member and benefactor of Colorado Mountain Club. This photo of Gary will appear in an upcoming article about him, written by Rick Casey, in CMC's Trail and Timberline quarterly magazine. Gary is pictured with "The Diamond" mural in the entry foyer of Neptune Mountaineering.

La Niña Natalia 1: This fishing boat was left by the fisherman who owned it, due to a broken motor, on Playa La Barqueta in the Chiriquí Province of Panama. His misfortune was my photographic fortune, because this little lady added real interest to my beach shots that week.

This shot brings back very fond memories of my trip to Panama last summer. I've been wanting to work on those photos for ages and finally have time over my spring break from teaching.

I picked this one first to work in, so I can wish a happy birthday to Scott Cain, the friend I made in Panama, who ironically was formerly from Evergreen, Colorado (go figure....)

Scott allowed me to stay at the beach house he was house-sitting for a wonderful few days to end to my vacation in Panama last July 2013.

Today, I'm playing around with my new #onOnePerfectPhotoSuite8, which I finally have the graphics capabilities to run, with my new "souped up graphics" #LenovoIdeaPadY510P.

I had been using my Dad's old HP Pavilion since he passed away, and it still is a beloved computer, but lacking advanced graphics needed for many photography applications; most specifically the #onOne software.

To test drive my onOne software and see if my new graphics card makes the grade, I chose to use #PerfectEffects8 on this photograph of singer, Brooke Nickerson, whose promotional photos were taken by As Seen by Janine: Eyes of the World Images, back in October.

I was inspired by seeing all the recent international press releases in France and the UK, using my photographs of Brooke. Those promos have reminded me of a few of Brooke's photos which I have still been wanting to post.

This one was one of my favorites from Brooke's portrait session. It was previously edited using #AdobeLightroom5, #AdobePhotoshopCC, and #PortraitProfessionalStudio11.

Today, I used #onOne Perfect Effects 8 to play around with adding a border to the photo. This border effect was creating using #PerfectEffects8 "Sloppy Border 17" with a few tweaks to get the effect I wanted: I lowered the opacity to 80%, changed the mode to "Soft Light" (instead of "Hard Light"), changed the border thickness to 7, then adjusted the "Fit Image" setting to 6, just enough to keep Brooke's elbow from being cut off by the border. The screen capture shows the setting sliders for my use of Perfect Effects 8 within Lightroom 5.


Brooke is back in town following her debut performance on tour in France with The Blissheads. As Seen by Janine: Eyes of the World Images will hopefully be taking more photographs of Brooke soon!

It is running pretty well on my new IdeaPad Chris. Pretty surprised... It does lag a bit from time to time, but nowhere near as much as I'd have expected given that I only have 8GB memory.

Janine Fisher - before and after this I was, and am again, Janine Fugere, the name I was born with. ;-) I do have some photographs published under Janine Fisher, in a book called "Coasting Along: A Bicycling Guide to the New Jersey Shore, Pine Barrens, and Delaware Bay Region" by the late Kurt B. Detwiler. I also worked as a professional portrait photographer under this name in the mid to late 1990's.
