Montrose Mud Moto Mayhem

This weekend was the first Montrose EnduroCross race of the year. I got to go and take photos again. It was a terrible, rainy, muddy, sloppy, gross mess. And I loved it! πŸ™‚ The racing was great, although a little slower and rougher than normal. Fantastic day of racing!

19th Black Canyon Car Show

I was glad to have gotten out to the 19th annual Black Canyon Classics: Colorful Colorado Car, Truck, and Rod Show last weekend. Saturday I was only able to be there until about 9am, so I’m sure I missed out on some cars that were incredible. What I saw while I was there was a whole range of really great entries. From new cars to antique tractors and everything in between. It was a pretty nice turnout and a really beautiful day for a car show.

Here are my best shots from Saturday’s show.

While you’re at it, take a look at Friday Night’s pics and The 2013 Car Show.

If you are interested in purchasing any prints from this post (or any of my other photos) send me an email – suzytbo@gmail.com.
I am also going to be offering glamour car shoots in the near future.
I will be posting details on prints and car shoots soon.

Don’t forget to check out the Black Canyon Classics Car Club Site.

Olathe 3D Archery Shoot

Today I got the chance to go out to my first ever archery shoot. I was very happy for the chance to go out and watch (and photograph) some really great archers. I love archery and am going to get some more advanced training and start bow hunting soon. Maybe I’ll even compete next year πŸ™‚

Here’s a little sampling of the action from Olathe today. Enjoy!

XGames 2014 Preview

This was the big weekend. This was XGames weekend in lovely Aspen, Colorado. Living just 3 hours away from Buttermilk Mountain, I have the luxury of scooting over to XGames for a while, even if I have to be back in town to take my kid to school in the morning. This year I did just that for Thursday night’s events, then I got to go back for the rest of the weekend with my hubby. It was a great time, even if we didn’t stay for the night events on Saturday or Sunday… πŸ™‚ It was cold and I was lacking in cool-guy wool socks. I will have to invest in some this year. I am in the process of processing my images, so here are a few to whet your appetite.

Ice Climbing for a Minute

I made it down to Ouray this weekend for a bit of the annual Ice Fest. When my oldest munchkin and I arrived Sunday morning for the speed competition the weather could not have been better, save a couple of upward degrees. It was overcast, calm, and only a little chilly. Perfect weather for ice climbing, and more importantly, perfect for pictures. We walked across the bridge over the canyon and all the way around the top of the climbing area taking a few photos and bidding good morning to some climbers on our way around.

We got to the parking lot at the far end and turned around just before the wind hit and the snow blew in. It was instant. I’m not even joking. Nothing, a few flurries, then Bam! Two-inch-an-hour blizzard! We left just before the competition started due to my lack of weather protection for my camera and also the munchkin getting quite unhappy about the violently blowing snow in her face.

Needless to say, I didn’t get terribly many pictures this year at Ice Fest. However, I got a few good shots, and as a bonus I got to try out my new monopod (It’s a Sunpak, just a $25 cheapy stick, but I absolutely love it!).

September Horse Races

Saturday and Sunday of this week brought the final installment of horse races in Montrose for the year. Sunday’s races were great – Not too hot, not windy, exciting action, and more importantly, no one got hurt. The turnout for Sunday wasn’t as impressive as it has been, but I think everyone that was there was having a great time.Β  I’m already itching for June and the next round of Black Canyon Horse Racing Association races! (There is also rumor of possibly pairing the races up with some other infield events next year for some added excitement…)

Here are Sunday’s highlights!



Here are a few bonus shots from race 3, by special request –

And Finally There Were Fireworks

In the midst of last year’s drought here in Colorado and all of the wildfires that were brought on by the dry weather, there was a state-wide fire ban in place via the governor. This meant no Fourth of July fireworks for us here in Western Colorado. This year looked like it was going to go the same direction, with a few fires burning before the start of summer. Not so! The dry conditions didn’t escalate as far as that this time. The fireworks would finally be on again! I have pictures to prove it…
