The sky is turning from black to blue, the street lights click off and people begin to stir outside as I sit drinking my first cafe-bought coffee of the New Year selecting photographs for a blog post showing destruction and hardship from the drought. But first I wanted to offer this photograph, an addition to my growing OTR (On The Road) project, as hope not just for a less dry year but general hope for prosperity and a lack of smiting from the powers that be.
A few pictures captured while on my way to and from a photo shoot in Steamboat last week.
From heavy traffic to a lone barn – 3 visual treats from a quick trip made a few hours early in an attempt to beat the storm.
This is the first installment of an occasional series of pictures taken while on the road. Literally. I often have the opportunity to drive from my home in Denver to surrounding states for an assignment. Most of the time I drive alone, sometimes I carpool with a reporter or the subject of the story. But on every trip the landscape flies by. And these pictures from On The Road are but a slice of what the Rocky Mountain West has to offer.
