What do you think of sites like kickstarter, gofundme & indygogo as it relates to photography & photographers? Do you think this is a viable outlet for photographers to get the ball rolling or do you see it as pandering? I would love to hear people's opinions on this.

I don't see why it would be pandering. It's a simple deal. Something like: You pay X, you'll receive Y. Just like any other voluntary trade of unlike goods – except that this one also allows people to support the creation of projects they like, and helps creators achieve their goals.
Good morning G+ and good morning Colorado! Just walked in the door from a nice morning of photography & I wanted to share a photograph with you all I recently took at Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge Long a favorite spot for fishermen, it has become one of my favorite spots as a photographer. It's sort of funny, as often as I photograph this old pump house, each time it gives me something different and unique. Here, I was graced with a sky that well, was just rather unique. If you look closely in the top left, you will see clouds that almost resemble fingers outstretched into the sky. Spring is certainly here in Colorado as the brown is now giving way to the start of very lush greens....only a few weeks left and any resemblance of winter will be gone. I for one can't wait! Bring on the wildflowers!

Chatfield State Park, one of my favorite locations along with many other photographers, is in seriously gigantic trouble. Without public outcry, 700 acres will be completely affected, destroying wildlife, their habitats and forever changing the beautiful landscape there.
There are 2 specific websites to help fight against this;
There is a very limited time to act and get the word out. The story itself hasn't been covered in the news so the general public isn't aware what is about to happen and forever change and destroy one of Colorado's most popular & beautiful state parks.

And yet another community here on G+ filled with stolen photography. This image I even called them out on as being a screen shot taken and stolen from the photographers Fine Art America account http://fineartamerica.com/featured/summer-memories-juliana-nan.html We as photographers bust our collective asses left and right only to have crap like this happen. Not even a link to the photographer who took the image, no mention of her, nothing. Just a screen cap and a post here on G+. Nothing is right about that! Their whole entire gallery is stolen photography...you all may wish to check if one of yours is among them.
This is completely awesome. I have nothing but the utmost respect for this guy who cleaned out an entire badly polluted pond, by hand, in NYC so birds could live here. This is what we need more of in today's society! RSEPECT!!!!!

A lot of people stayed up late last night to capture the eclipse and the "bloodmoon". I gave it some thought about doing the same thing but after some thinking I figured the moon would be very high up in the sky and there probably wouldn't be much to frame it with. Besides, everybody and their mom would be photographing it. I have always been sort of the type of photographer who wants something different when it comes to an event which everybody else is photographing. So, I did some more thinking and then the light bulb went off with a "hey, that full moon will be setting behind the Rockies at sunrise!" and my mind was suddenly made up. I had a great morning photographing it and was greeted by a beautiful sunrise with some great mountain wave clouds immediately afterwards. This is the first shot of many I will be sharing with you all.

I've always been a sucker for abstraction in nature. I find all the patterns & textures magical. Usually I photograph scenes like this using what I call "the drag and drop technique" during Fall but recently I saw something which caught my eye and decided to spend some time working on impressionistic work. The blues in the top caught my attention, it was the sky peeking through the trees and brush which initially drew me into the scene. I decided to use stacked ND8 filters to slow down the exposure and give it a little bit of a more darker feel when I took the photo. I really enjoy this sort of work as a photographer, it opens up a whole other realm of possibilities!
