Beautiful Silverton Colorado

Beautiful Silverton Colorado

Scenic landscape view of beautiful town Silverton Colorado north of Durango.  Silverton is linked to Durango by the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, a National Historic Landmark. Silverton no longer has active mining, but subsists by tourism, maintenance of US 550 (which links Montrose with Durango via Silverton), mine pollution remediation, and retirees. In 2002 an extreme ski mountain, Silverton Mountain, opened near the town.

Astrophotography Night

Astrophotography Night Art Print

After leaving Scottsdale Arizona to see my mom, I drove to Bryce Canyon in Utah for some astrophotography.  I arrived here in the dark so it was a little hard to find the composition I was looking for to show a little bit of the Canyon and hoodoos. Here is scenic portrait view into the colorful celestial night sky with the silhouette of a cool forest tree looking into a stellar starfield galaxy and universe.

Forests dominate the upper altitudes of the Bryce Canon Paunsaugunt Plateau containing white fir-spruce-aspen forest. Bristlecone pine lives in the high limestone knolls. Ponderosa pine and manzanita dominate the middle altitudes. Forest health and return to historic density are managed with prescribed fire. Pinyon pine-juniper forest dominates the lower elevation areas of the park. Gambel oak, cactus and yucca punctuate the lower elevation juniper forest.

Hope you like.

Waking up In Bryce Canyon Utah vBlog Video

After leaving Scottsdale Arizona on my road trip, I headed to Bryce Canyon National Park.  What a great drive it was. Nothing like waking up and catching a beautiful sunrise after a great night of astrophotography.

Really wanted to get a hoodoos with the sky, after getting there in the pitch black new moon night, it was hard to find a great location.  So I settled for some cool trees instead of falling off a cliff 🙂

Please check out some of the new images in the iGallery from this trip – http://james-insogna.artistwebsites.com

Arches Utah Rainbow

Utah Rainbow

This is from our road trip to Arizona and back. Nothing like seeing a rainbow in a scenic place like Arches Nation Park in Utah.  The colors with the snow caped mountains in the distance, what a sight to see.  I chased this rainbow from a few different places, a spectacular view.

Arches National Park is a US National Park in eastern Utah. The park is located on the Colorado River 4 miles (6 km) north of Moab, Utah. It is known for containing over 2,000 natural sandstone arches, including the world-famous Delicate Arch, in addition to a variety of unique geological resources and formations.

The park is located just outside of Moab, Utah, and is 76,679 acres (119.811 sq mi; 31,031 ha; 310.31 km2) in area.  Its highest elevation is 5,653 feet (1,723 m) at Elephant Butte, and its lowest elevation is 4,085 feet (1,245 m) at the visitor center. Forty-three arches are known to have collapsed since 1977. The park receives 10 inches (250 mm) of rain a year on average.

The national park lies atop an underground evaporate layer or salt bed, which is the main cause of the formation of the arches, spires, balanced rocks, sandstone fins, and eroded monoliths in the area. This salt bed is thousands of feet thick in places, and was deposited in the Paradox Basin of the Colorado Plateau some 300 million years ago when a sea flowed into the region and eventually evaporated.

Great Sand Dunes National Park And Preserve Panorama

Great Sand Dunes National Park And Preserve Panorama Art

This is a very large eighteen image panorama view of Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve.  Scenic landscape of the plains meeting the dunes and the snow covered springtime Colorado Rocky Mountains.   Park elevations range from 7,515 feet to 13,604 feet above sea level. In the summer, the sand surface can reach 150°F

There are several streams flowing on the perimeter of the dunes. The streams erode the edge of the dune field, and sand is carried downstream. The water disappears into the ground, depositing sand on the surface. Winds pick up the deposits of sand, and blow them up onto the dune field once again.

Digging a couple inches into the dunes even at their peaks reveals wet sand. Part of the motivation of turning the Monument into a National Park was the extra protection of the water, which Colorado’s cities and agriculture covet.
