High Country Sunrise

First light on a small pond on the Paradise Divide yielded pure blues in the sky and water. The image was the Scenic Photo of the Day at Bestfoto on August 22, 2004.

Columbines Above Crested Butte

Our Colorado state flower was blooming in abundance in July. They became the Shutterbugs Macro Photo of the Day on August 19, 2004 and at Photoshowdown on August 22.

Sunset, Paradise Divide

One evening I went up alone to a high pass called the Paradise Divide. It truly is Paradise. This sunset became my favorite image of my whole 9-day trip. The image was the Scenic Photo of the Day at Bestfoto on August 19, 2004, Shutterbugs on August 20, and Photoshowdown on August 29, where it later became a finalist for the month.

Stevie in Wildflowers

My friend's Samoyed looked so beautiful in the wildflowers of American Basin. The image was the Bestfoto Animals Photo of the Day on August 15, 2004 and was a Photoshowdown Finalist in their August contest.

Rainbow on Cinnamon Pass

We had a storm move through as we went over Cinnamon Pass, a four-wheel drive road. I radioed a friend and told him that if we were lucky, we might see a rainbow as the storm passed through. Suddenly, there it was! It was the Bestfoto Scenic Photo of the Day on August 15, 2004, and at Photoshowdown on August 27, where it later became a finalist for the month.

Let Freedom Ring

Our local Parker, Colorado fireworks show provided a colorful celebration for July 4th. This photo was a semifinalist in the Betterphoto July 2004 contest.

Falls on Burns Creek

Near Silverton, this scene immediately jumped out as a photo opportunity . The waterfall and historic cabin became the Bestfoto Scenic Photo of the Day on August 13, 2004, and on Photoshowdown on August 20, 2004.

Evening on Red Mountain Pass

Reflections in a small pond got the honors of the Bestfoto Scenic Photo of the Day on August 11, 2004 and on Shutterbugs for August 9, 2004 and Photoshowdown on August 17, 2004, and was a finalist in the August 2004 contest at Betterphoto.

The Yankee Girl Mine From the "Other" Side

This mine is one that I have photographed many times from the "front" side. But I have always wanted to get over to the back side. It was not disappointing. It became the Bestfoto Scenic Photo of the Day on August 5, 2004, as well as a semifinalist and finalist in the Betterphoto July 2004 Contest.

Young Kid

Born only a few weeks before this photo was taken, a mountain goat kid was resting on top of a rock in the morning light. This little one was the Photoshowdown Animals Photo of the Day on July 18, 2004.

Mt. of the Holy Cross

Hiking a short ways to an overlook on Shrine Pass results in this view of the famous Colorado "fourteener." The image was the Scenic photo of the day on Photoshowdown for July 21, 2004.

The Journey

This ladybug descending a backyard plant was a semifinalist in the Betterphoto June 2004 contest.

Vast

On Mt. Evans, mountain goats have a vast wilderness area in which to roam. It was the Smarteagle (now Photoshowdown) Animals Photo of the Day on May 16, 2004.

Hardy-Har-Har

This red fox seems to be laughing at me near Idaho Springs. The image was the Smarteagle (now Photoshowdown) Nature Photo of the Day on June 27, 2004 and later was a finalist in their June contest.

Up Against the Sky

A mountain goat shows off its physique on Mt. Evans. This was the Animals Photo of the Day on June 26, 2004 on Bestfoto.
