Pro Cycling Challenge in Denver

August 27th, 2014 by Neil Corman

Pro Cycling Challenge in Denver - 2014

Recent Work

Once again this past weekend the Pro Cycling Challenge ended in Denver.  This year I decided to head to the Civic Center Park area to watch the final laps prior to the finish of stage 7.  I had some ideas of the area I wanted to capture as the racers headed by and was sure to get to that spot early so that I could get the location I thought would be best.  In this image the racers are nearing the completion of their first lap and this is the peleton flying by in a single file line to try and catch up to the leaders of the race.

Island in Auke Bay in Juneau

August 25th, 2014 by Neil Corman

Island in Auke Bay - Juneau, Alaska

A couple of weeks ago the Getaway Monday image was from this same spot just north of Juneau during some rain.  I headed back to this location under better conditions to capture the same island but went with a different perspective this time around.  Instead of zooming in on the island I decided to include a little of the shoreline in this image to help provide perspective of the area and the size of the island.  Looking at the two you may get a sense of the difference in size as the earlier image may have made it seem a little larger than it really is under clearer conditions.

Bicycling Racing in Denver

Pro Cycling Challenge - 2013

From the Archives

On  Sunday the conclusion of the Pro Cycling Challenge will once again take place in Denver.  Last year, the final day of the race was an eight lap circuit race in Denver which took the riders from Civic Center Park to City Park and then back to Larimer Square and Speer Blvd in the downtown area.  I set up my location in Larimer Square and along Speer.  This image was during the first lap through Larimer Square as they came by around 25mph.

This year a little difference route to end up at the State Capitol, where will you be watching the race?

Harbor Reflection in Skagway

August 18th, 2014 by Neil Corman

Reflection in Skagway Harbor

This week the Getaway Monday image is from Skagway, Alaska.  During a recent trip I was walking around the town and near the harbor instead of looking up at the mountains in the area, I was looking down to see what the stillness of the morning was showing in the harbor. At first it was a reflection of a mountain in the distance I noticed, then it was the piers in the harbor which were lining up perfectly in order in this reflection image.  Not too long after I took this image, a couple of seals poked their heads up in this same area and a small crowd gathered to watch them enjoy the morning in the harbor.

Sunflowers on the Plains

August 14th, 2014 by Neil Corman

Sunflowers in the Field

From the Archives

Late summer is the time of year when fields of sunflowers on the eastern plains of Colorado attract photographers.  The main challenge is finding where they are located as it changes each year.  This year I found a field of sunflowers south of the airport near their peak. I spent a couple of afternoons photographing in this area.  The image of this sunflower is the isolation of the forward sunflower as it leads the rest of the field towards the eastern sky.  It is easy to lose track of time while photographing a field like this with so many options in a close space.

This image was taken during the summer of 2012.

Summer Evening in Juneau

August 11th, 2014 by Neil Corman

Summer Afternoon in Juneau

The Getaway Monday image this week brings us to Juneau once again.  With my recent travels to Juneau I have been asked what is it like. Well I think this image pretty much sums up an early August afternoon in Juneau. It was a full afternoon of cruise ships, and the float planes were coming back from excursions during the day. Yes it does rain in Juneau, but you also get great days like this to enjoy the Juneau and the surrounding area.

Storm in Denver from Cheesman Park

August 6th, 2014 by Neil Corman

Denver lightning from Cheesman Park

Recent Work

As I mentioned last week, I was photographing downtown Denver from Cheesman Park when a storm moved into the city in early July. From my location I watched as the sky started to light up across Denver and continued to photograph from my location until it was no longer safe to do so.  With a quick shutter I capture many images of the skyline including this one as lightning lit the Denver skyline through the pavilion at Cheesman Park.

Train Tunnel near Skagway

August 4th, 2014 by Neil Corman

Train Tunnel along the White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad

 

The Getaway Monday image this week brings us outside Skagway, Alaska and along the White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad.  On a trip to the summit and back from Skagway I was in the first car heading up to the pass and just over the border to Canada.  Upon the return the engines were moved to the other end of the train and I had an unobstructed view behind the train making the trip interesting, especially through the two tunnels.  As we descended for twenty miles from almost 3,000 feet you could feel the train using the brakes to keep us in control on a warm August day in southeast Alaska.
