Starry Starry Night

Voices On The Edge

“You may encounter many defeats, 
but you must not be defeated. 
In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, 
so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.” 
― Maya Angelou

The Blue Lakes Trail, Colorado

The year of preparation and anticipation buzzed by me since I'd read the article in Outdoor Photographer Magazine featuring the Blue Lakes Trail in Colorado. Nestled between rugged ridges and peaks over 13,000 feet in the Mount Sneffels Wilderness area sits the Blue Lakes Pass. Within the pass, this trail visits three spectacular glacial cirques, meanders past a breathtaking waterfall, all the while set among fields of seasonal wildflowers.

Crucial Elements

Canyon Sunrise 

I often feel like I live my life lurking around in the dark. I head off to work in the dark and more often than not as I move into a new landscape to shoot I'm heading in to catch the twilight hour or sunrise, thus traveling or hiking in the dark.  I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that this causes a bit of apprehension and anxiety, especially in an area I've not traveled in before. Going down the wrong dirt road in the pitch of darkness, navigating dark trails even with headlamps, encountering the wildlife on the move, all this can get ones adrenaline pumping.
