Pine Beetles doing their thing

This pictures are from a trip to Colorado in December. Among other great adventures and stories, a friend told us about this county's (and a lot of CO and WY) trouble with the pine beetles killing all the trees. Clearing forests with ease. Nothing I have read about seems to provide any substantial solution. Here is hoping nature steps in, with several days of -20 degree weather. That seems to be the only way. Here are some views of the landscape. It still looks pretty to me.

Good times with those snow shoes.

Family Times

So here are a few of the projects that were a lot of fun, as we wrapped up 2009 and got rolling with the new year.

Cloudy, cold winter is quite beautiful too. I love to feel the air.

Sticky Fog

The last month has been good with plenty of family time and photography sessions and cold weather. I plan on posting some images from the fun families I photographed over the holidays, but for now, here is some frost on a local plant. Yesterday was a foggy day, and the cold made some of it stick. Very pretty to see all the trees, shrubs and grass highlighted in white.

Behind the lens with Carolyn

She has been the product of so many photo shoots, its only natural that she would grow the desire to get behind the lens. Fashion photography is in right now, and there was a line of models lined up on the carpet for their turn in front of the camera.

The photographer, center image, even pulls back the camera on a few to give us a behind the scenes look at how she runs her studio. Natural lighting, set decorations and white copy paper is how to create this look. I get the photo credit for the center portrait. All other images used with permission.

Opening Night Hockey

Hockey is back in Kansas City. Independence, MO, to be specific - in the form of a minor league team, the Missouri Mavericks. Opening night was a sell out last weekend. Here is a wide angle from the upper seats.

See some other images in the MoMavericks Flickr group, HERE.

A children's book themed birthday party put many new faces to family and friends. We decided to create a minimal photo essay of the participants. Here is a sampling of the that record. The complete list can be seen here.

Lawrence Pt 1

Pictures of buildings? Thats weird.
My Sister-in-law writes a nice blog, and has been getting recognized around some other online spots. So these pictures (part two will be in a while) will be supporting her in an article she is writing...stay tuned for that, and some more images from the nice evening photo session we had together.

Infant baby boy

Another family opportunity came along, and I was very happy to spend the morning with this very new baby boy. I really enjoyed producing images for this new family.

powerful art

This is a very inspirational art piece from a Ukrainian TV talent show. I also enjoyed the Metallica instrumental seven minutes in.

A little random, but worth sharing.
