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.

February 2012 Desktop Wallpaper – Montana de Oro Sunset

February 2012 Desktop Wallpaper Montana de Oro

This month, I’ve introduced several new sizes to the monthly wallpaper, including a Facebook cover photo that works with the new Timeline feature that has recently been rolling out. I reviewed my web stats for the last year and released the wallpaper in the top 15 most popular desktop dimensions for browsing my site and I will continue to do so each month.

This photo was shot at Montana de Oro State Park in California. My favorite part of this area of California, aside for the beautiful scenery, is that there was absolutely no one around. I didn’t see a single soul for the nearly 3 hours spent on this bit of coastline. At this particular area, the leading lines of the rock features were interesting to me and made natural shapes out of the ocean water. The sunset this spring evening was a particularly long one, and I was grateful to have the extra time for composing each shot perfectly.

Fall is winding down in Colorado and winter is just around the corner. This shot of Capitol Peak was taken from the trailhead that leads to the base of the 14er. Aspen and the surrounding Elk mountains received a fresh blanket of snow early in October turning most of the mountain summits white.

Fall colors are finally here and a trip down to Telluride for Telluride Photo Festival provides one of the best times and settings to photograph them. This shot was taken from the Alta Lakes towards Lizard Head and Wilson Peaks just outside of Telluride.

August 2011 Desktop Calendar

Laguna Beach was made into a household name with the MTV show of the same name in the mid 2000s, but what the show failed to show instead of reality drama was the beautiful shorelines that line the coast of the area.

July 2011 Desktop Wallpaper

Montana de Oro is a beautiful State Park on the central coast of California about fifteen miles west of San Luis Obispo. The park shows off some of the central coast’s best cliff features, and the best part is that it’s never crowded. I had this place all to myself for nearly 3 hours.

Playing with timelapse photography

Inspired by a few recent videos, and the master of this art, over the past few months I have tried my hand at creating some timelapse videos. My results are by no means the striking visual works that have been created in the links above, but I think what I’ve produced so far is decent for a beginner.

When given the chance over the next few months, I intend to pursue shooting timelapse videos to accompany my normal photography and hopefully my finished products will continue to improve.
