April 4, 2011: Trip to the United Kingdom
In mid-March my family and I traveled to the UK to spend some time with my wife's family. It was a short trip and my priority was spending time with family but I still managed to get out and do a little photography. We spent time in Cornwall, Devon, Herefordshire and Wales. It was wonderful to be back there and a nice change from the mountains. To see my trip images follow this link.
November 10, 2010: New Blu-ray Disk
At the end of November we released our newest product; a high definition Blu-ray Disk presenting the beauty of Rocky Mountain National Park. We've chosen to use Blu-ray as it allows us to present each of the 300+ images in gorgeous detail. The idea is to allow you to bring high quality photos into your living room and show them on your HDTV. This Blu-ray Disk is designed to run in the background, slowly transitioning from one photo to the next and showing Rocky Mountain National Park as it moves through the seasons of the year. It is accompanied by the relaxing music of Brian Crain and is a great way to help transport you back to this magnificent national park. To order or for more information follow this link.

June 10, 2010: Spring in the Desert
This spring I once again spent about a week in the desert southwest. Just before and just after the busy season here in Estes Park I like to run away to the desert for personal refreshment and to photograph something different. On this trip I spent about half my time in Zion National Park and the other half along the Arizona / Utah border. I never thought it would happen, but my imagination has been completely captured by sandstone. This simple material reveals itself in a myriad of forms and colors. It almost dances to the light, revealing new and unseen aspects with each movement of the sun.
