Taking a different way to the waters edge, my timing was perfect. I was able to get a few shots just when the colors were at their peak. The warm colors made the water look deceivingly warm, but I wasn't about to test it.

I focused on this rock under the water, allowing my nd grad to subdue the sky while maintaining the reflection.

On a side note, the colors were so vibrant, I actually reduced the saturation and vibrancy. Quite a bit might I add.

Just before work ends, I glance at the sky. I see if the clouds look like they are gonna show some light, and if I'll get lucky or not with a photo op.

Well, for the second night in a row, the sky looked like it was about to unleash a flurry of colors, however. After work ended, I needed to help my sister-in-law out for a bit with some moving. So, in a mad dash I did my chores with just enough time to go grab my gear.

Right when the early signs of color started to dance on the clouds, I was finding a new spot with all new sites along Horsetooth.

Just enough spare time to give me a chance to capture the beauty.

It was one of those sunsets you keep your fingers crossed behind your back for. The ones you think, "Better start walking back." But something keeps you there, tells you not to go. "Fifteen more minutes," I mumble to myself. Then as if Moses was parting the Red Sea, the light began to illuminate the rain. The warmth grew slowly at first, then brighter and brighter until everything was bathed in ambient gold light.

Being blessed with views of nature such as this is why I fell in love with nature photography. So I can share these moments with all of you. And to motivate you to get out there and experience it for yourself first hand. Because even if you get out for only a half an hour and hike just a half mile, you're still lapping people on the couch.

Another terrific sunset at the nearby Horsetooth Reservoir. On this visit, the water was at its highest point of the summer. So this time I tried a new location and noticed this spot along the waters edge. Wading into the water up to my waste, I positioned the camera for a nice sweeping panorama to capture everything. Then began the waiting game.

Once the sun began to spit out the evening colors, I began to shoot. Dragging out the exposure allowed for the water to smooth over into a nice foggy waterline. It also made the boaters invisible.

In an area I hike quite often, a wildfire has begun.

Starting Monday evening the burn began in the early afternoon. By Tuesday, 400 acres were on fire with only 5% containment. Wednesday, 1,000 acres with 5% containment.

We'll have to wait and see what happens in the days to come. But rest assured two great areas to go and hike are going to be very interesting subjects once this fire is over.

Oh, and the glowing haze is the smoke rolling off the hillside. The fire's color and the long exposure create the red blanket of smoke.

Update: As of Friday 5/18/2012 the fire has grown to 7,300 acres.

On a short trip back to my hometown, I knew I wouldn't have an ample amount of time to get out and shoot. So, the first morning of my return, I arose before the sun and set out to Busch Wildlife. A local conservation area that I have been going to since I was able to cast a fishing pole. Also, an area my buddy :iconbldn333: shoots quite often.

Remembering Brad mention that the lakes had been a little low, I decided to check out a lot of lakes, but settled on the largest lake of them all, lake 33. When I arrived, there was a layer of late season fall leaves coating the shoreline.

Even though the clouds and forecast claimed rain was immanent, I stuck around to see what the sunrise would do. For about 5 minutes, this little light show illuminated the horizon just above the trees.

I was pretty tickled to see that, especially considering I never had another chance to get out and shoot while there.

Petrel Cove
South Australia

This is another image taken from Petrel Cove on a beautiful humid and sultry Christmas dawn. To welcome in the new year. I thought I'd post something vibrant :) Thank you to everyone here who has continued to support by viewing and commenting on my work. It has been a real pleasure and great to know that these morning trips on weekends have been providing a source of pleasure to someone other than myself !
