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.

Oregon Coast Tide Pools

In Lost In Nature by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

I was somewhere along the northern Oregon Coast when I took this photo, but I couldn’t tell you exactly where. The tide pool was full of birds. The waves were splashing on the coastline. The sunset was quickly growing softer and more colorful. I sat on the side of this tide pool for maybe twenty minutes trying to photograph the birds that were playing in the water until I realized that was ridiculous.

Frozen Winter Pond at the Farmhouse

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

I’ve had my eye on this spot for a while and I’ll probably return here again. I was waiting for either an overcast day or a perfect sunset to go and make a photo. I need to make an image here to hang in someone’s home. My vision for the photo they want is with the pond, the row of …

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 …

Lizard Lake in Marble Colorado

In Landscape, Lost In Nature, Seasons by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

Let’s imagine for a minute that we don’t only visit a location to make a photo for our social feed and we can just enjoy the world as it unfolds in front of us. I was on my way to Crystal Mill and I would spend half a day making different images there. But on my way to Crystal Mill …

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 …

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 …

Snowy Pasture

In Landscape, Lost In Nature, Seasons by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

This snowy pasture is close to where I live. I drive past and ride my bike past this spot regularly and think nothing of it. But when we get a fresh snow I’ll go out early to see if there are some interesting photos to be made. I practice photography mostly when I travel and the sites around me every …

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 …

Almost Oregon

In Lost In Nature by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

To me this is Almost Oregon because it reminds me of the rivers and greenery that you would see along a river in Oregon. This is actually along the hike to Hanging Lake in Colorado. We don’t have a lot of rivers flowing beside trees covered in moss in Colorado. In fact; half of the state of Colorado is a …

Mount Sopris in Summer

In Landscape, Lost In Nature by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

Mount Sopris is a new find for me. I don’t live in this part of the state but this spot jumped out to me on Google maps when researching routes for a Colorado bike tour. The side of the mountain is covered with Aspen trees so the slopes of the mountain will be lit up with bright oranges, reds and …

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 …
