Rich & Mandy in Sunflowers-1 (shadowed)

I am fortunate to live in one of the most beautiful places on earth. My goal is to share the beauty of Colorado by drawing the viewer into my images. I do this through the use of a technique known as photo merging. Some of my merged pictures consist of hundreds of individual photographs seamlessly quilted into a single panorama. The resulting prints are large and highly detailed. Another key advantage of this technique is that it permits me to achieve extreme depth of field by using multiple focus settings. This allows the objects in the distance as well as those in the foreground to remain in focus in the same composite image. The result can provide a simulated 3-dimensional effect.

The images on this website are relatively large so if you have a slow connection they may take a while to load but when they do they will show some of the detail in my merged images. Nevertheless, even with a good monitor they look much better when printed using the process described below. All of these images are under copy write protection. Feel free to use, share and enjoy them (with attribution to this website) for personal use. If you are interested in commercial use of these photos please contact me. 

I have priced my work to make it affordable to display in your home or office. Unless noted otherwise prices are for high resolution (240dpi) prints mounted on 1/4" plywood board and "floated" from the wall on a 1" box. They are laminated under a non-glare UV filter to provide a durable surface and fade resistance. Prints come ready to hang and they can be shipped directly. My panoramas are produced at Picture This Superior. Sizes shown are typical although quality prints may be ordered in larger or smaller sizes (price is a function of area). I have also reformatted and printed many of my images under a 24"x18" matt with a foam core backing. Each is packaged in a protective envelope and includes a time and geo-tagged label. Ready to Frame Matted Prints are priced at $50 USD. If you are interested in discussing a print you can contact me at or 303.884.6788.

As an avid hiker I can often be found with my camera, tripod and trusty dog Mountain Mandy searching for new visual treasures.  For more of my photographs with narrative from our wanderings please visit my blog called "Tales from the Trails".

I enjoy portraying Colorado through my photography and I hope that you take your time and wander through my gallery.
