TWO PIECES CHOSEN FOR JURIED EXHIBITION
If you live near the metro-Denver area you're invited to take in one of the better annual showings of fine photography in Colorado.
The City of Lone Tree presents "Exploring the Light" at the Lone Tree Arts Center, 10075 Commons Street, beginning March 13th and running to May 12th.
The display is free to the public and is open Monday through Friday from 10 AM to 4 PM, or prior to and during evening or weekend performances in the auditorium. All art is available for purchase and may be taken at the close of the two month exhibition.
I'm pleased to have two of my images in this year's 50-image show: "Electricity" and "Gold into Silver."
Update: "Electricity" was bought during the run of the show.
WATCH FOR THE WRAP-UP 2019 REPORT (first week on January)
If you're reading this, chances are good that you're a nature and photography buff, too. Photography is a wonderful pastime for the casual shooter and a rewarding obsession for the person who demands more of themselves and their gear. I hope YOU have a great year in 2020, too.
OLDER (but still good) NEWS -- WINNER OF A NATIONAL MAGAZINE COVER PHOTO COMPETITION
This picture of me on the Emerald Pools trail in Zion National Park was taken about an hour before I made the shot the editors of COWBOYS & INDIANS chose for their 2014 annual photography issue's cover.
I had a good feeling as I was settling on the composition for the Virgin River scene. The conditions were promising and the light was getting better and better. The hard part was waiting a week before seeing what I had gotten -- I was shooting medium format FILM through that big Pentax 67.
You can see the actual magazine cover in the Honors & Awards section of this site, and my original image is in the Autumn & Changing portfolio. It's called "A Virgin Autumn."
More than 900 accomplished photographers submitted their work (around 1,400 images) for consideration. I'm proud my image was selected as the face of a special issue.
BY THE WAY
If you're someone who is thinking about setting up a new website, or changing from one you've been using, I suggest you consider the company I've used while creating this site. Every thing you see throughout this site is MY own work -- content, fonts, sizes, positions, layout, backgrounds -- everything.
SmugMug is one of the top five host/design entities in the world and they have great basic designs and economical plans for every level of user. One of the things I was most concerned about was support: I'm a "liberal arts" guy -- not a computer geek -- and I needed to know I could count on prompt and frequent "hand-holding."
Simply stated, they exceeded my expectations. As one of their "members" I'm now authorized to share with you a discount offer they provide. When you sign up, use this code -- ItvdKRr8Gv6s2 -- to further reduce their already reasonable charges. (And, yes, I will also get a small kick-back if you do. It's about growing the big happy "family."
