Foggy Winter Morning

In Artistic Photography, Landscape, Seasons by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

With any luck, I get one photo like this a year. Where I live, the weather conditions rarely bring fog so when I see it I’m inclined to go out looking to make moody images. Young kids in my household have me up and out of the house early every morning anyway. The question is whether or not the fog will hang around long enough for me to get out and make a few dozen frames after taking care of morning family duties.

Sunday Morning Cycling

In Artistic Photography, Street Photography by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

On Summer Sunday mornings you can usually find me riding somewhere in the foothills of Northern Colorado. I rarely take a camera with me. I want to just enjoy the ride and if I find a spot that’s worth photographing I’ll go back later and take my time making some images. Going out photographing with fellow cyclists at ideal times …

Buffalo Bill Reservoir Wyoming

In Artistic Photography, Landscape, Lost In Nature by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

I was in Wyoming to view the Solar Eclipse in 2017. My brother in law loves to photograph anything in the sky and he did come away with a really cool series of photos. I spent an evening putting together this panorama with his frames in photoshop while enjoying a bottle of rum with him if I remember correctly. My …

Lone Argan Tree

In Artistic Photography, Landscape, Lost In Nature by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

This lone Argan Tree was somewhere in the desert of Southern Morocco. I was crossing the country scouting a bike tour and this spot captured my attention. I wrote an article about creating photo versions for designers with more detail about why I ended up with this particular edit. I always add the map to these posts so you can go …

Ice or Surf Ambiguous Photography

In Artistic Photography, Black and White, Lost In Nature, Seasons by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

Is it Ice or is it Surf? I like photos that make you look twice to figure out what you’re looking at. I’m not sure if this image fully accomplishes that, but that’s what I was going for at the time. There was a period where I only took these kind of photos. I was stuck in a rut only …

Rolling Green Olive Orchards of Morocco

In Artistic Photography, Landscape, Lost In Nature, Worldwide Butter by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

Northern Morocco is carpeted with olive orchards everywhere. For about half the year, they look like this. I was expecting the whole country to look like a desert punctuated by some mountains so this was a surprising sight. The next time I visit Morocco for a cycling vacation I’ll plan it during the spring so we get this lush green …

Moonrise

In Artistic Photography, Black and White, Landscape, Lost In Nature by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

This moonrise over Mount Sopris is a rare sight in Colorado. Yes, the moon does rise every day. We are on planet earth and all those cycles are consistent here. We rarely see a sunset and moonrise cycle with a completely cloudless sky. That’s especially true in the mountains of Colorado. This is one of our location stops on the …

What is Known

In Artistic Photography, Black and White, Lost In Nature, Seasons by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

You know what you’re looking at in this photo so you expect it to become clear and it never does. My wife hates this photo. I enjoy a lot of tv shows and movies that are heavy on imagination, sci-fi and even fantasy. She likes narratives that are rooted in the real world. We’re different that way and that’s a …

Hills of Pillaro Ecuador

In Artistic Photography, Landscape, Worldwide Butter by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

This scene in the hills of Pillaro Ecuador is only a short drive up into the mountains outside of the city. I was looking for a spot to get a panoramic photo of the city. The top of the mountain was covered in fog so going higher up the mountain didn’t make sense. I didn’t know what was down this …

Weather Permitting

In Artistic Photography, Seasons, Worldwide Butter by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

I have been living in Northern Colorado for just over a year now. The sunsets here are comparable to anything at sea level. I’m sure I will eventually move from this location so I have to get the images while I can. This is a scene that I pass almost every day and every day that I pass this place …

Devil’s Water Painting

In Artistic Photography, Black and White, Further Lost, Lost In Nature by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

Water painting in the swamps. Well that’s what it looked like to me anyway. I’ve been working through some old images, and applying creative editing when looking at them because frankly sometimes the image just wasn’t that interesting to begin with. Learning which photos are worth spending time on is a learning curve that I’m still working on. My post …

Northern Colorado Landscape Dotted by Oil Derricks

In Artistic Photography, Further Lost, Landscape, Worldwide Butter by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

An oil derrick is a common sight in the fields of Northern Colorado. I thought I’d give these nodding donkeys an apocalyptic feel just for fun. I don’t know how long I’ll live here so I’m capturing interesting scenes while I can. I know my photo publishing is all over the place. I’m working on organizing my library to pull …
