Photo Caption: “Engine 487” – Colorado –
This train was photographed in Southern Colorado during a somewhat stormy summer afternoon. I was traveling in my RV heading from New Mexico to Colorado to participate in an art festival when I noticed this trainyard. I am glad I stopped because as I was walking up to the tracks, this train just happened to be arriving. This is a 3-photo HDR image processed a number of years ago using Nik Software. My favorite HDR software now is Aurora HDR 2017 from #Macphun
Last night I received a phone call letting me know that my photo “On Parade” sold during the opening night reception at the annual Art for Horses Show and Sale in Parker, Colorado at the PACE Center. Not only that but another edition sold before the show even opened! I am so psyched and grateful!

Sunlight shines down inside a kiva at Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado in this photograph from August of 2008.
“Kiva and Ladder”
Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado (Click on photo to view larger and to purchase signed and numbered prints)
In order to get into this underground kiva I had to climb down the ladder. If anyone has ever been in a Kiva before you know it is a pretty small room. So once I found a good composition I placed the widest angle lens I had on my camera and crouched down to get this shot.
While it looks like I had the kiva all to myself I had to patiently wait for tourists to come and go so I could photograph during the brief moments when no one else was in there with me.
Dust from the ground helped illuminate the sunlight ray coming from the above opening and the reflected light off the ground and wall gave me all the light I needed inside the dark Kiva.
This was photographed with my Canon 5D and 16-35mm lens. It was a 1.3s exposure at f16 at iso320.
