This photo was taken on the way to the Peace Valley School, in the middle of nowhere Colorado. I have been trying to do more black and white — this photo looks pretty cool in black and white in my opinion.
I shot this image of a Bald Eagle on the way to see the Abandoned Peace Valley School. This image isn’t too bad considering I was shooting with 23mm. Typically when I have my smaller compact X100F camera, I need a longer lens to capture Bald Eagles.
Peace Valley School
The Peace Valley School was built in 1911 by homesteaders and closed in 1946. The school sits abandoned just north of Fort Morgan, CO
Castlewood Canyon State Park Hike
We hiked around Castlewood Canyon State Park this year on my birthday. This is one of my favorite State parks in Colorado. There are nice mountain views, canyons, and a creek. This park has been called the best for accessibility in Colorado, since there is pretty extensive paved trail which goes through a good bitContinue reading “Castlewood Canyon State Park Hike”

I’m still trying to work out the overall theme of this site. I think the majority of content will be related to photography. I may also add a few posts at random that are off topic, but are things that interest me.
With 2015 coming to a close, I have had some interest in starting a 365 project in the new year. I know I won’t have the discipline to last more than a week or two, so I may aim slightly lower, or to at least have the goal of shooting at least once a week. I have a large backlog of topics I’d like to post about here, just need to find some time. In between, I might post links to recent images and provide some back story on the location and the thought process to how the image was created.
