I began my writing life as a reporter for a small town weekly newspaper. It was a great place to start because the job required I learn to do everything, including taking my own photos. I just wanted to write, but as we’ve become a society in love with the visual, photographs are an essential for many forms of expression, including a blog.
I’ve been posting about my trip to Denver last month. I was only there for a few days, but the trip gave me a wealth of stories and photos. Our trip happened to coincide with the fall rut for elks. The bulls congregate with cows and calves in September and early October. They leave in the montane ecosystem which consists of ponderosa pines and mountain meadows.
I hope you enjoy a few of my photos as much as I enjoyed capturing them.
