The Hues of God

February 22nd, 2009 | Italy, Rome

On beautiful morning in Rome, I happened to wander into this church and catch the first rays of morning light making their way to the faithful masses. My camera shutter sounded so very loud in this immense chamber…the silence was very notable.

Those Rocky Mountains…

February 16th, 2009 | colorado, Rocky Mountain

One of the best parts about living in Denver is the accessibility to the Rocky Mountains. The snow this year has been minimal, and with temperatures above normal, it has allowed me to get some mountain hiking in on the weekends. This is the falls below Sky Pond in the Rocky Mountain National Park. It is a semi- moderate hike to get to (by Rocky Mountain Standards) and has several scenic “pay-offs” along the way.

FYI: There is a person in this photo to give you a perspective of the size of this falls.

Shoot the Moon…

February 7th, 2009 | colorado, Denver

The Chamberlain Observatory telescope, a 20 inch Clark Saegmuller refractor, was among the largest of its kind at the time of construction. This telescope first saw light in 1894 and is still in use today. The observatory has a great feel of antiquity, but in a good way. It made me nostalgic for the heavens that I had never been to.
