"Clouds Over Rocky Mountain National
Capture Date: September 12, 2014
I arrived at the park at around 6:00 A.M. I was there to video elk. But the fog was so thick you couldn't see ten feet in front of you. I almost went home but decided to drive upward. Then this happened. Awesome. Available as a print. - CLG
"Walking Back, GSDNP"
Date of Capture: March 28, 2014
Location: Great Sand Dunes National Park
Colorado has more to offer than just mountains. For a year I have been trying to make my way to Great Sand Dunes National Park. Finally made it there and the wind was howling for most of my time at the location. At first I was cussing the wind . Yet the longer I shot the more I realized the wind was adding some uniqueness to the images. - CLG
Date of Capture: March 10, 2014
This was taken at the Devil's Backbone trail, just west of Loveland, Colorado. I love this photograph. I love the fence line that leads to the clouds. I love the little storms clouds. I love the trees standing on top of the foothills. The more I look at the photo the more I am drawn in. I am proud of this capture. Also on that day, on the trail I met some pretty exceptional people. Thank you all for a great afternoon. - CLG
"Early Morning Light At RMNP"
Some photographs just say do me in black and white. I think this is a perfect example of such a photo. CLG

"Aspen Grove in Black and White"
Date of Capture: May 27, 2013
This was shot somewhere west of Fort Collins, Colorado. I wish I could be more specific but to be honest at the time I was a little lost. That happens when you decide to turn off on dirt roads and wander. CLG
"Horses and Tetons in Black & White"
Date of Capture: October 7, 2010
Sometimes you really can't add words to a photo. I believe this photo speaks for itself. The light that day was perfect. It was one of those days that I couldn't take a bad photograph. Ahh, if only life was always that easy. - CLG
"Wyoming Winter Landscape"
Date of Capture: December 26 2011
Wyoming in the winter can be a very isolating and lonely experience. It is the wind mostly that gives you a feeling of depression. In the winter in Wyoming when you drive the backroads, you can look around and get the feeling you are on another planet. It is weird, beautiful, exciting and a little depressing all at the same time. - CLG
"Buffalo Crossing, YNP"
Date of Capture: August 31, 2008
The light was terrible but seeing a herd of buffalo crossing a river is not a sight you see everyday. So I snapped the photo. The original digital image was way too soft. So I went for the b&w grainy, high contrast processing. This photo kind of reminds me of a photo taken with Kodak Tri-X film and then over developed and printed on high contrast paper. CLG
