we’ve got a lot of things to shoot up here in the Pacific Northwest. the problem is, a lot of it’s already been shot to the point that it seems like a cliche to shoot it again. but i’ve found that light, camera angle, the way it’s framed … all this and more can take an expected shot and make it something more. one other thing while i’m on this soapbox, when i give in to the joy of shooting something, i end up with my most unexpected images. that … total involvement and passion for the shoot … i think it helps. sometimes you need to be clinical, like in architectural shooting, but passion brought to even that changes things.

Aspen trees, in honor of autumn, and in anticipation of my mountain jaunt tomorrow.
Taken on a day-trip up Independence Pass in the fall of 2010, prior to a good friend moving back to California. She and I spent a couple of months in 2010 going on photographic road trips so she could get as much of Colorado in her sights before leaving. This trip took us over Kenosha Pass, through Leadville, over Independence Pass, and back home down I-70. Tomorrow’s day trip will be over Guanella Pass (road conditions permitting), Leadville, Independence Pass, back down to Kenosha, and home. Should be a good way to celebrate the Autumn Equinox.
