En route to Maine (more on that later), we made our first visit to New Hampshire, which Leah adorably calls “New Hamster.”
My friend Tom and I spent a few days exploring Great Sand Dunes National Park and the surrounding area back in April. It’s a spectacular valley and we had a great time getting some really good pictures. The trip ended with vomiting at a Walgreen’s.
We spent the first half of the week in Colorado Springs.
Midweek, we headed up to Loveland to stay with Auntie Car and Unkie Doo. We hadn’t been there since Aly was just a toddler, but we had a blast as we always did on previous visits.
After a great week in Colorado, I dropped the girls off at DEN and then picked up my friend Tom for our adventure at Great Sand Dunes National Park, which is coming up in the next post.
I didn’t do much shooting on Friday, except for about 30 minutes along Laurel River Road and Tremont Road with the new 80mm macro lens that Fuji kind enough to lend me.
Thursday was a whirlwind day with lots of activity at the summit. As I was left my room to join an early morning field session, I looked up and saw stars, so I instead jumped in my car and headed up to foothills parkway to shoot some star-to-sunrise timelapse.
Wednesday – the first full day of the conference. After breakfast, I headed into Cades Cove with a large group of attendees, and Chas Glatzer as our instructor. If you’re wondering what it’s like to go on a field outing that’s part of a photography workshop, this post will give you some idea.
Monday morning brought the first real sunshine I’d seen since Friday, and the warmer temperatures that came with it were welcome.
Yesterday’s 42 and heavy rain are this morning’s 24 and heavy snow.
I hit the road well before sunrise, on my way to the mountains.
