Favorite Photos of 2018

December 28, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

2018 was a great year for me in photography. 

I moved back to Lake City, Colorado, and opened a gallery for my photography during the summer. Despite that, I got out a lot; and I took some of my favorite images this year. From the Sandhill Crane Migration, to Yellowstone in the Spring and then onto the San Juan Mountains of Southwest Colorado for the remainder, it was a year filled with nature! You can see a few of my favorite photos below, but if you would like to see them all, then click here.

Moose in a Colorado AutumnMoose in a Colorado AutumnMy perfect Colorado autumn scene!

I was watching a cow moose graze by this pond for a bit just willing her to get in the water. I’d never seen a moose in this pond before, but I knew it’d be a great photo. Finally, she did! And I watched her for 15 minutes taking photos, as happy as I am capable of being. Then I heard the crunching of branches and out of those aspens appeared another cow plus calf and a big bull! They proceeded to hop in the pond and pose as the sun lit up the clouds over the La Garita mountains creating just about the most perfect scene I could ever imagine. They stayed for a long time into the twilight allowing me to take a few hundred photos before they were muscled out of the pond by some thirsty cows. A perfect fall night and a new favorite photo set of mine!

I have to start out with quite possibly my favorite photo I've ever taken from a perfect sunset with four Moose friends this September.
