Headed up to the Maroon Bells for sunset armed with my Sony NEX 5-R. I was the only person there, it was amazing.

I noticed Pyramid Peak looking rather majestic so I drove up to the Aspen Rec Center and shot this with my Sony NEX from the baseball field. 

Winter is here.

Goodbye summer. Welcome back, snow.

Hope you all had a fantastic holiday weekend. Here’s a shot that I snagged with my Sony NEX-5R last night. This camera has quickly replaced my Canon DSLR as my primary shooter. The low light performance is kick-ass, as you can see in this shot. I was a little skeptical about mirrorless cameras at first, but after a couple weeks I am now a believer.

US Pro Cycling Challenge - Stage 1

We’re very fortunate to have events all year around up here in Aspen, and the US Pro Cycling Challenge is one that I look forward to each year. It’s America’s biggest and baddest race and brings in the best cyclists from around the planet for a seven day tour through Colorado. This year, Aspen was the host to Stage 1 and Stage 2 of the tour.

I’ll spare you the details of the terrain and how gnarly this stage is, what I will show you is what I saw during my time camped out at the finish line of the race thanks to my new Sony NEX 5-R.

Free cowbells, and Aspen Mountain in the background. Sweet.

Aaaaaaand they’re off. 68.2 miles until they’re done.

They were lookin’ FAST coming through after their first lap of three.

Of course Meredith was there, signs in hand, hashtags and all.

These massive cardboard cutouts of Peter Sagan (he won Stage 1) were hilarious.

Pushing hard to the finish line. Can’t imagine what these guys feel like at this point.
