This weekend I didn’t have a wedding, which was a nice break, and LK my wife was getting sick and tired of being sick and tired as she is in her final trimester of pregnancy! So I decided a trip to the mountains was necessary! LK called it our babymoon, which seemed appropriate.
Here are a few images that I got while we were out. It was an awesome getaway.
This is a chapel in Aspen that I have always meant to photograph. Finally I decided to grab one.
The wildflowers are getting out of control.
Why it’s called “Aspen”
My foot in nature.
Mark, LK and Nixon Babymoon!
I made a new friend.
LK’s baby bump. Babymoon!
Aspen trees were of course, in full effect
I need to explain this one. I was really inspired by all of the creativity that I witnessed at an art festival that was held in Aspen. I wanted to capture a shot of the Aspen trees creatively. In a way that I’ve never seen. It became my mission. I also wanted it to be a pure photo. No photoshop. So when you look at this, I am sure many will say, “oh that is photoshopped”. No, this is actually right from the camera. I achieved this effect by dragging my shutter and panning my lens vertically to follow the flow of the aspen trunks. I’m ecstatic about the results and can’t wait to print this on water color paper!
And you are not going to believe this. LK and I were driving back on Independance Pass, when I just about gave LK a heart-attack when I saw this guy shuffeling alongside a rock wall, “What is THAT!!! And I fumbled to get my stupid iPhone on and finally I got to the camera+ app and shot a few images. I am still pumped and I think I am going to print one of these as well for Nixon’s nursery!
And another iPhone photo, this is little Penelope who came with us by default as we were dog sitting for some friends. She was a really sweet dog and we miss her already!
