Billy The Kid’s Grave

Billy The Kid's Grave

If you ever find yourself driving through ‘Nowhere’ New Mexico, stop by Fort Summers and visit Billy The Kid’s grave. If not, just read about it on Wikipedia and enjoy this image. There’s not much else there.

Photographer’s Note – I posted a HOW-TO video about this image over on a live Google+ On-Air hangout. If you are interested, you can watch it here.

Lucky Find

I have forgotten the name of this quaint little restaurant. I do know it is located in the small coastal town of Hopkins, Belize. It’s the kind of place your nose finds when you are out on a quiet stroll on the beach. The Chef came to our table and told us the ingredients he had on hand and proposed a few dishes he could whip up. That was new for me. The only time I get that kind of treatment is when I visit my mom’s kitchen. We asked to take his photo, which he agreed to, as long as we didn’t post it on the internet. He jokingly claimed he was a wanted man. Wanted or not, he made a great curry!

If you are headed to Belize, or interested in learning more about it, take a look at my free Photographer’s Guide to Belize.

Today’s Photo

Almond Beach Resort Belize

Today we are looking at the Almond Beach Resort in Belize. It’s a single image stylized using Nik Software Color Efex Pro. I have found that night shots usually only require a single image because the ‘Highlight Recovery’ slider in Lightroom is very powerful. As long as I get details in the shadows, I can usually recover the highlights. Sure, I’m not going to recover the details in all the spectral highlights…but who cares about that?

Night Chilies

Chimayo Santa Fe Hotel

Have you ever been to Santa Fe, NM? It’s kind of a long weekend getaway for folks here in Colorado. Too far for two days, but perfect for three or four. It’s full of bright beautiful color and well worth the trip. I was still wired after a long day of traveling, so I decided to go shoot some photos late one night. Here’s a cool spot I found at the Hotel Chimayo. Great place at the price is right!

San Francisco Folks – I’m headed that way in a bit, do you have any must see, must do, must eat type of things you could share with me? I’d totally appreciate it.

Denver Skyline – Part IV

Denver Skyline

I hope you have enjoyed this tour of the Denver Skyline one early morning. The sun rose and it was time for coffee…and a few boring egg whites (long story). On your left are the Rocky Mountains. On your right is Kansas.
