Another image from my backpacking trip to Ice Lakes Basin near Silverton, #Colorado.  While the #wildflowers weren’t as intense as over by Island Lake, beauty was still abundant.  What an amazing place to spend 3 days relaxing and photographing!

I’ve been quiet on here lately with much of my time going to trip prep for my upcoming adventure to Europe.  I finally had a chance to edit some recent images and this one comes Island Lake in the San Juan #Mountains.  #Colorado has been graced with a beautiful #wildflower season this year, I only wish I had had more time to photograph it!

In this #workshop you’ll learn how to create amazing landscapes of Colorado’s best mountains surrounded by golden aspens. My workshop will start with instruction on location, scouting & photographing during sunrise/sunset, and progress to technique instruction throughout the class. 

What You Will Learn 

Fall Photography:  The primary goal of this workshop is to guide you to the best spots for Colorado fall photography and provide instruction while shooting.

Shooting Techniques:  Camera setup along with the importance of learning your camera.  Camera settings such as ISO, aperture, and shutter speed.  Composition for the various types of landscape photography encountered including grand vistas and intimate aspen shots.

Post Processing:  While this workshop will not cover in-depth processing we will discuss techniques that include noise reduction, sharpening, color balancing & enhancement as well as some other tweaks to improve your images.  The majority of my work is edited in Lightroom as well as using the Nik Software Plug-ins.

Location Scouting:  We’ll discuss the best locations for fall photography in Colorado as well as how to find new and different angles on popular spots.  We’ll also cover techniques for planning the time to photograph, and researching/reading the weather.

Today I’m jumping back to a favorite location near #Denver.  My best advice if you encounter a road like this in #Colorado mountains, take it easy, because there’s no shoulder!

"Icy Road up"
A brief storm of snow and ice the night before broke to a clear and vibrant morning.  Clouds gave way to a frosty sunrise over the Mt. Evans summit highway.

Sunrise over Little Giant Basin, the final descent on the #Hardrock100 course back to #Silverton.  #Kilian had already ripped through here in the dark a couple hours before and finished in record time.  Scenes like this are the reason I got into #ultrarunning, it’s a great way to explore and scout for photography while training to carry all that gear ;)

A fiery sunset beckons the first night on #Hardrock100 course near Silverton, #Colorado.  The clouds that created such a beautiful scene soon unleashed a dangerous electrical storm as the race’s top runners scrambled above treeline. The course trail can be seen in the right winding up the slope before heading the rest of way up to Handies Peak. trailporn
