January Up The Dolores River
Highway 145 north of Dolores, Colorado. My favorite highways are those that are so lightly traveled that, if you saw a must-have photo, you could hit your emergency flashers and stop without pulling off to the side. Most of the time, anyway. The Upper Dolor...

Ship Rock, New Mexico. I drove down into northwestern New Mexico to photograph Ship Rock. It's west of the town that bears its name, Shiprock. The Ship Rock is the weathered remnant of a volcanic plug -- the magma that cooled to rock while in the throat of ...

Days So Much Shorter
Pinon Pine snag at Montezuma Valley Overlook. It's August now. Late summer. It's been a spectacular one, too. Rain showers in the afternoon, keeping the land green. Minimizing the wildfire danger. At this time of the year, the days (length of daylight) are ...
