December 2012 Desktop Wallpaper – Golden Gate Bridge

December 2012 Desktop Wallpaper Golden Gate Bridge

Earlier this month, I had an opportunity to shoot with 4 of my favorite San Francisco photographers in their own backyard and what better place to shoot in the bay area than the Golden Gate Bridge. Thanks to Joe Azure, Toby Harriman, Michael Bonocore, and Todd Sipes for showing me one of the best place to shoot the Golden Gate Bridge.

November 2012 Desktop Wallpaper – Blanca Peak, Colorado

November 2012 Desktop Wallpaper Blanca Peak Colorado

With fall winding down in Colorado, I’ve been making it a point to get a few more difficult mountains climbed before they’re covered with snow. Blanca Peak, a 14er in the Sangre de Cristo range, has been on my list for a while. This was shot the night before while camping in the valley below.

October 2012 Desktop Wallpaper – Dallas Divide, Colorado

October 2012 Desktop Wallpaper Dallas Divide

Fall in Colorado is the best time of year, and the San Juan mountains in southwestern Colorado are the best place to experience it. This shot, taken from the top of the Dallas Divide, shows Mount Sneffels, a 14,000ft mountain, towering over the aspens in the valley below.

September 2012 Desktop Wallpaper – Blue Lake, Alaska

One of my favorite things about photography is that luck can be just as much a part of a photo as years of knowledge and experience. My friends and I only expected to shoot at Blue Lake in Alaska for a few minutes before heading off to another location for the day, but when we came over the crest and saw the still lake, we were greeted with a rowboat that seemed to hover on top of the smooth water – the perfect foreground subject. We ended up staying here for an hour and this was one of my favorite shots. The lake was so calm and the air so still that it’s almost difficult to tell where the boat ends and the lake begins.

August 2012 Desktop Wallpaper – Mount Edgecumbe, Alaska

Sitka Alaska Mount Edgecumbe desktop wallpaper

I had a incredible opportunity to travel to Alaska in June with two good photographer friends, Colby Brown and Joe Azure. We spent an entire week hiking, taking photos of the ocean, mountains, bears, and all the wonderful scenery that Alaska has no shortage of. Denver has had a stretch of multiple 100+ degree days this summer, so a trip to the cool, cloudy Sitka, Alaska was something that I intend to make a summer tradition. This shot was on one of the first nights in Sitka and one of the few that a sunset actually made it’s way through the clouds. It was worth the wait as this light show on Mount Edgecumbe was amazing.

July 2012 Desktop Wallpaper – American Flag Barn

American Flag Barn in Colorado with July desktop wallpaper

Colorado has so much creativity and art associated with it’s history that a short drive through the foothills will reveal sculptures, murals, and giant American flags like this one just outside of Boulder. What better month to have an American flag than the month that the United States celebrates it’s independence.

June 2012 Desktop Wallpaper – Death Valley

Every time I’ve shown this photo, I’m always met with extreme curiosity about why the rocks slide across the desert. Is it weather? Humans? UFOs? The truth is no one really knows. The phenomenon has never been captured on film, but scientists speculate that the rocks slide across the desert floor by high winds that are timed perfectly after a rare freeze. The icy surface makes it easy for the 80 pound rocks to glide before settling back down to rest until the next weather pattern blows through. I definitely recommend visiting Death Valley. It is, by far, one of my favorite national parks in the US.

May 2012 Desktop Wallpaper – Sámara, Costa Rica

May 2012 Desktop Wallpaper

In mid-April, I traveled to Costa Rica to enjoy some warmer weather and relaxation time on the beach. I’ve been to Costa Rica before and it’s one of my favorite countries to visit. The locals are extremely friendly, the food is great, and the weather is perfect. Not to mention the beautiful beaches. This beach is right next to the villa that we stayed in outside of a town called Sámara. Horses would run on the shore around dusk as the fishing boats were pulling into the harbor just as the evening sun set. I always find a spring trip is the perfect transition from winter to spring/summer weather in Colorado.

April 2012 Desktop Wallpaper – Colorado Sunflower Field

April 2012 Desktop Wallpaper

The eastern plains of Colorado do not get near as much attention as the Rocky Mountains to the west, but each August the eastern crops of Colorado are greeted with fields upon fields of sunflowers. They are only fully blossomed for around one week out of the year, so catching them at the right time is tough. It’s truly a unique site when the sea of yellow goes on for further than the eye can see, only to come to a stop at the foot of the best mountains in the US.

March 2012 Desktop Wallpaper – Rocky Mountain National Park

March 2012 Desktop Wallpaper Rocky Mountain National Park

I’ve been pretty busy this month with a complete redesign of this Web site. My intention is to have my photos be seen up close and personal in a full-screen format on the home page. It’s 99% done, and I hope to announce it early next week. Because of this, though, I’ve had little time to get out and shoot. Winter has finally arrived in Colorado (3 months late) and I’m getting the itch to get back outdoors and shoot skiers and ice climbing.

For this month’s wallpaper, I dove deep into the archives of last autumn for this shot from an early morning hike in Rocky Mountain National Park. Longs Peak is the tallest peak in the park and can be seen for miles around, including from Denver. The color from the aspen trees was especially bright this season and it was no exception on this cool October morning.
