My good photos often seem like pure luck. Sure - I try to stack the odds in my favor by seeking beautiful places, but ultimately, I realize I'm just along for the ride. I just have to keep that camera handy as the sun and the moon and the stars pass by. Timing is everything.

I bought my first climbing harness last month. I haven't taken it out yet - got caught up in flowers and bugs and now the turning of the seasons - but once winter arrives I may go join the BRC and learn some skills for the future. Rock looks like fun.

Here are some of those bugs I've been hunting. Pics taken a few weeks ago at Twin Lakes Open Space near Boulder. All handheld and unedited. And lucky.


No such thing as "luck." Those are excellent shots from a skilled artist.

My favorites were taken after freeing the flag from the summit of Capitol Peak.
We decided to let the flag have a little fun after being brutalized by 4 seasons on the summit of Capitol.
So we chased some cows with it.

I needed one of those down at Shavano/Tabeguache on Wednesday, there was a herd of well-fed cows....and the methane cloud was intense!
