Breaking the Rules

There are rules in landscape photography. One of them involves the Golden Hour. Generally speaking, that’s about an hour after sunrise and an hour before sunset, when the light is warm and the shadows are dramatic. (Latitude can affect how long that hour really is.) I personally like to incorporate the hour before the so called golden hour in my shooting plans. At the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, that all changes.

Colorado Outdoors

The last few months were, well, a detour. I stepped a little out of my comfort zone to do some video tutorials for Nisus Writer Pro, a Macintosh word processor. Doing video podcasting was intimidating, but it has been a terrific learning experience. And everyone has been very supportive, especially the folks at Nisus Software.

But spring is here and summer is coming. If you’re like me, you are probably turning our attention outdoors, and maybe planning a trip. Everyone has favorite places, and many of mine are in Colorado. While they are terrific in the winter, the mountains can also be spectacular in the summer. I thought I’d share a few of my favorite photo locations.
