Late nights

I've been having a great time riding around Colorado on my motorcycle, camping out, and shooting the beautiful night sky. The Milky Way has been shining bright these past few weeks, and it's been absolutely beautiful for night sky photographs. Needless to say I haven't been getting much sleep lately - but that's why I love this job!

The 8 miles of hiking through the night were well worth it for this shot of the Milky Way over the Diamond on Longs Peak

I drove up to the Maroon Bells for the night shot, but when the sun rose I couldn't resist getting this classic image with the flowers :)
