The Rainbow Stove Burner

I have no idea how this happened…
The Electric Stove Burner has been rainbowed!
Post Processing… Rainbow palette filter & some crazy grunge in PhotoStudio

Chilies Terra Cotta

A quick iPhone shot…
I’m about to stuff these Anaheim Chilies with Monterey Jack Cheese & roast ‘em on the grill! 
Anaheim Chili Peppers
…originating in Southern California in the early 1900’s.
Although most recipes call for them green, they’re quite flavorful as they ripen to a mature red.
Dried Anaheim’s, known as “secos del norte" are quite versatile for spicing up your favorite Mexican dishes!
The spicier New Mexico Chili looks very similar to the Anaheim, with it’s own distinct flavor, it’s featured in Southwest style dishes.

Wasatch Reflections

Salt Lake City’s eastern skyline is the Wasatch.
Reflected here in mirrored skyscrapers, 
the Wasatch Mountain Range is the western edge of the Rocky Mountains.
Locals call it the Front Range… 
stretching over 150 miles from the Idaho border to central Utah, 
the tallest peaks rising to 11,000 feet above the Great Salt Lake Basin.
Since 1996, I have traveled there to attend the Outdoor Retailer Trade Show.
With an incredible quiver of outdoor sports possibilities right out the window,
it’s the perfect place for the adventurers of the world to gather.
An international event where Outdoor Sports Manufacturers present their latest gear to Retail Buyers.
The Outdoor Recreation Industry is really tight… 
a place where many of my friendships have lasted over 40 years!
“Our Tribe” shares passion for the outdoors. 
Each time we gather it’s like a high school reunion… lots of hugs & greetings as take care of business.

Prayer Flag Reflections- Lung ta

They can be seen throughout the Himalayas - Lung ta the colorful Prayer Flags.
Health, harmony, peace, compassion, strength, & wisdom.
Tibetans believe that good fortune comes from hanging the flags, 
good will mantras & prayers are blown in the wind to the surrounding countryside.
The repeating pattern of five colors represents the balance of the elements, “five pure lights”…
yellow for earth, green for water, red is fire, white symbolizes the air/wind & blue sky/space.
Traditional prayer flags are woodblock printed, the powerful horse, Lung ta, is centered on each flag, surrounded by traditional symbols & mantras.
Brought back by some mountaineering amigos, this set of flags once flew at Everest Base Camp.
They now hang high over my abode… I like to think they bring a long life of good fortune to my world!

Sunflower Vibrance

Driving down 12th street I spotted a field of Sunflowers against the sunny Summer sky.
I shot there for awhile, every Flower casting wonderful shape!
Later in post processing…
this picture got in a throw down with Mr. Grunge Layer & all hell broke loose!

Cherry Tomato #6081

Over the past couple of years, Food Photography has become a big part of my still life work.
The Local Farmers Market & Vegetable Gardens have become favorites places for grabbing colorful shots! 
I caught this Cherry Tomato out in My Garden after watering, the afternoon lighting was magic…
