Went over to Denver Pro Photo today and picked up a Lensbaby Composer with the Double Glass Optic and a Fisheye Optic. Fun stuff. Here are a few shots from this afternoon playing with it.

More here.

Estes Park

Last night Lexey and I went up to Estes Park to spend time with her family and then spent the day there today in the cabin her parents rented. The scenery was great, as always in that area...




A few more from Estes Park are here.

Christmas with the family

Yesterday was a good time. Lexey came over and Sean came down from Leadville with his dog Moose.

PhotoFriday: Best of 2009

I have quite a few photos from 2009 which I would list as my best and it is hard to choose just one. I guess I will go with this one from Lucca, Italy in the heart of Tuscany.

Vail - Good to be back

I always love returning to the slopes of Vail. Yesterday I rode there with Dan, Brienne, Jeff, Melanie, and John C.

That time of year

All food, all the time. Just got home from Wendy's house where there was a cookie decorating party.

Crock Pot Cooking

Current music: Jimi Hendrix - All Along the Watchtower

This past weekend I bought a crock pot. I have always wanted to get one, but just never did. I have already used it twice. The first thing I made was a green chile soup. I found the recipe for it on the back of a can of Hatch Green Chile Enchilada sauce. So tasty.

Colorado's Cyclocross State Championships

Today was Colorado Veldrijden Crusade 3 (the state championships) for cyclocross. Photos are here:

After the snow earlier this week, there was a fair bit of mud on the course:

Strong Correlation

Current music: Spoon - Written in Reverse

I am seeing a strong correlation between when I shoot photos at a cyclocross race and the number of hits I get on my website.
