Genevieve & Jeremy

This is Jeremy and Genevieve and their beautiful dog Zahara at Grotto Falls just south of Bozeman. We were all so glad we could make it up there before the snow started flying. What a gorgeous place and what a fun little family!

Climbing with Bob & Kristen | City of Rocks, Idaho

Here are a few sweet captures from our day with Bob & Kristen.  We climbed Theatre of Shadows – a sweet and easy 5.6/7 four pitch slab fest on Jackson’s Thumb next to Steinfell’s dome in City of Rocks National Reserve near Almo, Idaho.  City of Rocks is a climbing mecca, with thousands of bolted and traditional routes on hundreds of one- to three hundred foot boulders scattered across a sweeping valley.  There are routes here for everyone from beginner to advanced.  The climbing is incredibly varied, with short, sporty, bolted crimp-fests, and long & easy multipitch cruisers.  Awesome place.  Anyways, here’s a taste of the City.

Idaho Star Trails

Here’s a fun star trail capture from my inlaws’ backyard from over the weekend.  The technique is so different than a lot of what we shoot.  Instead of the rapid succession don’t-miss-a-moment energy of a wedding, making one picture can take hours.  It kind of forces you to slow down and think; like about how crazy it is that we are on this little spinning ball in space.  :-)

Belated Independence Day

So I’ve been going through some not-so-recent work that unfortunately seems to never get done when there is no deadline.  :-)  I’m powering through some of it and thought I might share a couple of images from the Fourth of July fireworks.  Rachel and I both spent a lot of time in Idaho Falls growing up, and often go back for Independence day -  in part for family, and in part for fireworks.  Idaho Falls is pretty proud of it’s fireworks show, and they really are pretty good.  You may remember last year’s post on July 4th; it’s hard to believe a year has flown by so fast.  Anyways, here are a few from this years fireworks.

MSU Wood Kiln Firing

The art department here at MSU has some fun toys. This is the wood kiln. They stoke it up occasionally to fire projects from pottery classes. Needless to say, it gets really hot. (Don’t ask me how hot though, I’m in architecture.) It’s pretty impressive though and has a cool old feel to it because you don’t just turn it on and set a timer. These guys split wood and stoke this fire for days. Art guys: I welcome any facts… how hot, how it works, etc. If you’re interested in prints check out Prints & Products or email me.

Peet’s Hill

I’ve spent a lot of time on Peet’s Hill lately in Bozeman.  It’s an interesting little escarpment of earth right in the middle of town that really serves as an intra-urban organic refuge. Every dog in Bozeman spends time with its owner here. It’s a cool spot, but it’s at night that it really comes alive. Here’s a few from a recent evening there I thought ya’ll might enjoy.

Southeast Idaho Lightning!

I don’t know if I’m cursed or what, but I hardly ever see lightning these days. It simply evades me. Finally a little lightning storm grazed the north edge of town when we visited my wife’s parents, but this is the best we could do. At least it’s something. Bring on the weather!

Independence Day ’08

God bless the USA!  Here are a couple snaps of a flag display and the fireworks on the Greenbelt in Idaho Falls, Idaho.
