Heptagons

While sorting photos recently, I rediscovered a folder full of infrared images taken during my very first visit to the Buffalo Peaks Ranch. I find these more interesting now than I did back then. Stay tuned for more photos from this collection.

Pause

Since 2015, my road excursions have felt a little off as compared to adventures of years past…like some spark has been extinguished. I’m confident that this is due to the time and mental energy consumed each night by sorting through photos and connecting (or trying to connect) to internet. In the old days, I would wait until I had returned home before editing and sharing my pictures.

After a long day of driving, hiking and exploration, it’s good to wind down by doing nothing more demanding than staring at the night sky. So, I plan to be offline for the next few weeks. Rest assured that I’ll return with plenty of new photos from the road.

Enjoy the month of May, everyone!

Sundown

In addition to our usual pre-dawn arrival each day at the Buffalo Peaks Ranch this past October, we picked one afternoon to return for our first look at the ranch glowing under the light of the low western sun. The mood was quite different, and there was much excitement as we ran around and clicked away at all of the wonderful new presentations of light and shadow. We stayed until the sun fell behind the distant mountains.

Ranch Dreams

A transequatorial double-exposure collaboration with my friend John, who lives in New South Wales, Australia. This roll of Rollei Ortho 25 black & white negative film was first exposed during my most recent visit to the Buffalo Peaks Ranch in South Park, Colorado; the frames below feature Jay, Sarah and my shadow. The film was then shipped to John, who went shooting near his home with an eye toward light and texture. We’re quite happy with the way the roll turned out.
