Airplane Landing in Juneau

July 14th, 2014 by Neil Corman

Delta Boeing 757 Landing at Juneau

The Getaway Monday image this week is n Juneau.  As I was walking the Airport Dike Trail which starts at the northwest corner of Juneau International Airport, I watched as some of the evening aircraft landed. Currently the trail takes you through the approach lights thus when an aircraft comes is landing in Juneau people will stop and watch the aircraft come right over their head which was the case with this Boeing 757.

Dragon Boat Festival in Denver

From the Archives

Later this month the 14th Annual Colorado Dragon Boat Festival will take place at Sloans Lake.  There are many activities which take place over the weekend including music and entertainment, but the main attraction are the races on the lake itself.  This image captured two of the boats racing in a competitive race with the foothills in the background on Sunday morning in 2012. This year the event will be on July 19th and 20th.

Mendenhall Lake & Glacier

July 7th, 2014 by Neil Corman

Mendenhall Lake and Glacier

The Getaway Monday image this week is from Juneau, Alaska and Mendenhall Glacier. The glacier is located north of downtown Juneau in an area referred to as the valley. As the glacier slowly recedes the lake is forming and started to do so in 1931. If you follow the glacier up it will run into the Juneau Ice Field which is currently the 5th largest in North America.

This image was taken around 8pm with a couple of hours of sunlight still remaining on this day.  Just over the shore are some pieces of ice which right after I took this image some kids went to try to retrieve but the smaller piece was just out of their reach.

Summer at City Park in Denver

Summer at City Park in Denver

Recent Work

Summer is here in Denver and during the course of the day there is plenty of outdoor activity at City Park.  As I made my way through the park I had plenty of runners and bicyclists pass by and approaching the center of the park I noticed this cyclist pass as the employees who rent bicycles start to bring items out for the day along this sweeping path.

Wildflowers above Juneau

June 30th, 2014 by Neil Corman

Wildflowers above Juneau, Alaska

The Getaway Monday image for this week brings us to Juneau, Alaska. After taking the Mount Roberts Tramway from the city I started to hike towards Gastineau Peak.  With views of the city and surrounding area it was a great view and soon after I came across fields of wildflowers. For this image I found a collection which stood out and provided a view down the Gastineau Channel towards the airport giving the flowers the primary focus but also allowing a sense of place.

Denver Skyline in 2010

June 12th, 2014 by Neil Corman

Denver from the Platte Valley

From the Archives

I was looking through the archives this past week and came across this image I took in 2010.  The first thing which I noticed is how much the area has changed since then and if I remember correctly from being in this area in the Platte Valley recently the view no longer exists like this towards the Denver skyline. I am hoping to visit this spot in the next few days and will see how it has changed since almost four years ago when this image was taken.

Skyline of Denver in the Spring

Denver Skyline in the Spring

Recent Work

Driving home recently from an event I drove past Invesco Field and from there noticed the skyline on a nice spring day. Everything has greened out even with some later snowfalls this year and the skyline is filling in nicely from this vantage point west of downtown.  With the constant building taking place in Denver the past few years it will certainty look different in the next few years or sooner.

Beach in Lofoten, Norway

June 9th, 2014 by Neil Corman

Sandy Beach in Lofoten, Norway

 

Around eight years ago I visited Norway and as I headed further north the days got longer and here in Lofoten the sun never set.  While along these islands, I rented a car and explored this magnificent location on the northwest portion of the country.  Driving south I encountered an area with a white sandy beach and stopped to walk along it for a while. Even so far north it was still mild, but not quite beach weather.  With my film camera I captured this image looking towards the southeast into the island giving a sense of what Lofoten is about in nature.

Denver from City Park Golf Course

June 5th, 2014 by Neil Corman

Denver Skyline from City Park Golf Course

From the Archives

There are plenty of images from east of downtown Denver taken from City Park. On this day a few years ago I was walking across the City Park golf course to look for something a little different bringing in some of the trees.  The tree I found in between fairways was interesting to me due to the flight lean of the tree to place on the left of the frame. Watch closely for any golfers who may have been on the course at the time I used this positioning in the image and the Denver skyline as well as the mountains fell into place.

City Park Criterium in Denver

June 4th, 2014 by Neil Corman

Denver and th eCity Park Criterium 2014

Recent Work

This past weekend the City Park Criterium took place. Once again this year I found a location at the east end of the course and captured the cyclists as they passed by with the pavilion, Denver skyline and Rocky Mountains in the background.  Not too long after I captured this image, the clouds started to move in blocking the view of the mountains in the background so I walked through the park looking for new locations as well as scouting for the upcoming summer months. Look for some new City Park images in the next couple of months from some of these locations.
