Don't forget to remember

I almost skipped any type of photography year in review because it was a disappointing crop of photos this year.

I'm glad I didn't.

I learned a couple of things from reviewing what I had and even though I had hoped for more shots and better shots,

I got some shots, and I don't want to take that for granted.

Thanks to all who have liked, commented, shared or otherwise supported me this year. Let's make 2021 vetter!

Walt Whitman said, "“Now I see the secret of making the best person: it is to grow in the open air and to eat and sleep with the earth.”

I guess he never had the chance to sleep in a @nucamprv trailer.

Happy New Year, friends!! May we meet around the campfire and spend more nights in our campers in 2021!

The Sentinel of the Past

The Sentinel was a notable spire formation that was found near the rim of the Bryce Amphitheater. This image was captured in February 2015. Less than two years later, the Sentinel toppled and is no more.

“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out going to the mountains is going home; that wilderness is a necessity.” – John Muir

This has been especially true in 2020. Happy #internationalmountainday #mountainday2020 #crestedbutte #paradisedivide

A break in the storm

A brief interruption to a snowstorm makes way for the sun to poke through the clouds and spotlight a rock on the eastern edge of the Bryce Canyon amphitheater.

Cotton candy world

Hoodoos + fresh snow + sunrise = a #dreamscape at @brycecanyonnps_gov

This was one of my happiest moments as a photographer.

Just a couple of other photographers and I shared in the silence and majesty of watching the amphitheater take on that magical glow after a two day snowstorm.

At his post

In 2013 we had more than the normal amount of Snowy Owl sightings. This guy found a temporary home an Amish farm north of Pittsburgh.

There a silence in simplicity that gives us room to think, space to hear, and energy to rest.

This might be my personal favorite image. It was captured in 2015 at @brycecanyonnps_gov

Winter creates a brutal work environment but work doesn't stop.

Don't look at the calendar. It feels like spring or early fall.

Happy #nationalcampday 2020!

I didn't get into my site tonight before dark, but did manage to snag the post-sunset light and colors. What a beautiful sunset tonight.
