I could on at length about the conversations we had with Henri Dunster. What a life he led. Starting in the 50s as an industrial artist he moved to the Yucatan and began documenting Mayan Architecture. He spent his entire life doing just that. Several months after I made this photograph his passed away. I was honored that they used this portrait of him at his service. It was one of the few photographs ever taken of him.
The sub-zero temperatures here in Colorado have frozen the internet. I haven’t been able to upload anything today. I’ve also been battling computer issues. Apparently Apple’s new OS Mavericks doesn’t like my Drobo. Hmm, I’m not sure what is going on with Apple these days. Anyone else having issues with the new OS?
Ok, enough whining….let’s get to some beauty! This is an image I made last year at the 1st annual North by Northwest. I had wandered around Trillium Lake for a while looking far off into the distance at Mt. Hood when I stumbled upon this rock. I loved how the rock and its reflection were analogous to Mt. Hood and its reflection. It was kind of like and SAT question. X is to Y as A is to ? What do you think, does it work or am was I just really tired when I photographed it?
I hope you all enjoyed your holiday. It’s supposed to be getting cold here in Colorado, so I thought I would try to warm in up a bit around here. Scripps Pier is one of my favorite places to photograph. I love the contrast of waves, clouds and the unmoving pier leading you to them.
My New Workshop
If you missed it, I launched my new photography workshop. You can check it out here and if you use this link (click here) you can get the holiday savings. If you’re a ‘Good Newsletter’ subscriber, make sure you check your inbox because I sent out a super Cyber Monday deal. I’d love for you do take it so we can continue the creative adventure together.
In the distance is the small town of Fruita Colorado as seen from the Colorado National Monument. If you are a mountain biker, you’ve probably have visited once or twice. It used to be small agricultural town, but in the last 5 years it has become of the top 5 places in the US for mountain biking. If you are ever headed this way, let me know and I can share some trail information with you. A couple of years back I rode my mountain bike from Fruita to Moab along the fabled Kokopeli Trail. That was an adventure I will never forget.
