Solitary windmill stands post over the recently harvested grain field at dawn. Bright highlights and long dark shadows show the rolling Colorado prairies bring out the terrain relief under the fluffy layers of monsoon cumulus clouds exacerbated by the massive smoke and ash from forest fires across the Western States.

Ubiquitous high power electric lines span many miles across the eastern Colorado prairies to bring electricity to the burgeoning populations and isolated farmsteads. Low angle post dawn sunlight creates dimensionality with long highlighted ridge lines and deep shadows.

Found an area of Colorado high prairie with rolling hills and infinite grain fields and used the post dawn light and shadows across the scene to develop the depth of the terrain. Monsoon moisture drawn off the Gulf of Baja and smoke from Western state forest fires help form the cumulus cloud banks.

This service berry tree was shocked by near zero temperatures and champagne powder snowfall. 1st frost was over 4 months ago, however, most of the days have been unseasonably warm, which fooled this and many other plants into beginning their spring growth.

The early morning sun is rising behind me, is being reflected off the closest office building, is being reflected off office building windows just to my left, and is finally revealed as the dappled pattern on the windows and wall of the original building.

The sun sets over the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains and is reflected in the high rise building glass over the LoDo (LOwer DOwntown) section of Denver as viewed from an upper deck at Coors Field.

Spotted this potential shot while approaching a group of fellow photographers gathered to take blue hour photographs of the Denver skyline against the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. Took several shots from the area where they were gathered, then moved back to catch this image.

Managed to salvage this rose bush and almost missed the opportunity to photograph the floral world in my own backyard. Allowed the rose bushes to go wild over the last couple years; last fall did major pruning and results are satisfactory for the recovery.
Here, with the late afternoon bright summer sun backlighting the single last rosebud of the year applied diffuse, reflected filler flash to bring out the front petal colors while maintaining the translucence from the sunlight.

How do you get over a dozen Lutheran pastors to smile on command?
Line them up for a group shot and state, "On the count of 3; say 'MONEY!'" Not perfect but no frowns.
Volunteered at the last minute to document the installation of our newest senior pastor at Mount Olive Lutheran Church, Aurora, CO. Almost got caught without enough power to finish service and this group shot.
Major lesson learned, "Take control and organize!" Here needed to put the older and less trim emeritus pastors behind the trimmer and, usually, younger pastors. The closer to 6-pack abs the better!
Can see all faces.
Any other suggestions are welcome.

The shots were taken in 2 sessions; one late night to capture something before the operators left in the morning; 2nd in early morning sunlight as sun crested the mountain ridges to the east. Anyone have suggestions on action text? Message me, thank you.
