Nature in all of it’s aspects.

Somewhere in Colorado

A little bit of fun with lens flare. This was taken somewhere just outside of Fort Collins, CO.

When taking a shot like this I usually take a few exposures, one that doesn’t have any flare and is a good clean image to work with, then for fun I take a couple with a ridiculous amount of lens flare positioned how I want it. Now the strange thing is that I end up liking the images composed with lens flare a bit more.

Sorry about the ridiculous watermark, usually I don’t go so crazy with them.

Snow Tracks

Snow Tracks “What kind of tracks are these?” I hear myself asking, tracks where never my strong suit.

Mountain Landscape – WIP

Here’s a little work in progress from this years shenanigans.

Yet to be titled Mountain Landscape.


I’ve so much work to catch up on this weekend.

Out on the trail

Steve Kafka checking his shots on the trail.

Out on the trail Steve checks his camera for proper exposure. Harsh light filtering down through the trees can make it difficult to get a decent shot. I recommend bracketing your shots, the polar extremes of light and dark make it tough work for a cameras sensor to get a good exposure.

Went on a little weekend trip with the family out to the Keystone/Breckenridge area of Colorado. Stayed in a beautiful condo owned by a family friend. No major backpacking but a couple day hikes that where incredible. One was up to a massive waterfall and a tiny lake, the second was up Mohawk trail just south of Breckenridge to little Mohawk lake with a lot of old abandoned mining equipment along the way.

Skyla gets a few pointers from mom.
