Awesome looking clouds...
 
Coors Mountain!

Long exposures are great, but often I find myself limiting the length based on the movement of the clouds, in hopes of capturing some of the more illusive shapes.

Yes it is...
 
Horseshoe Bend at sunset

I’m about 10 minutes away from boarding a flight to Amsterdam and then to Hamburg and wanted to get a photo shared out before we take off. I’ll be working out of the Nik office in Lübeck, so it’s time to get funky with some jet lag. In the meantime, here’s a photo I took wayyyyyyyyyy back when of Horseshoe Bend, near Page, AZ. I really can’t ever tire of seeing photos of this place. It’s so freaking cool, isn’t it?!

I love how the two rocks on the right tower over the one on the left in a similar way to the mountains in the background.  This is well composed  for sure.

These types of shots are awesome.
 
Mother Earth's own fine art paintings. This image was taken while flying above the glacial rivers of Iceland. These colors are produced from glacier runoff before heading into the Atlantic Ocean

Story
Tagline
A photographer moonlighting as a quality control lab technician in the Biotech industry.
Introduction
I have been interested in photography since High School, but never wanted to pony up the cash for a camera.  Big mistake I know.  My father-in-law sold me his Canon D350 in 2006 while on a family trip to Thailand.  I have been shooting images ever since.

I am not a pro, but I'm not a beginner either.  There are many aspects of my photography that can improve, and I am humble enough to admit it and to ask for help where appropriate.

In February, 2012, I started my own website, www.focustheframe.com.  It is still a work in progress, but it will get there eventually.

My claim to fame is that I once won two airline tickets by guessing the distance of a Colorado Rockies home run hit in the bottom of the fifth inning to +/- five feet.  This radio contest had been going on for years, every season, with one random guesser chosen per game.  I submitted my guess at the beginning of the season.  After I won, the contest suddenly stopped.  I honestly think I am the only one who ever successfully pulled this off.

I live in Denver, with my wife and year old daughter and I couldn't be happier.
