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! 🙂 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.

2014 Friday Night Pre-Show

It’s car show season again! This weekend was the annual Colorful Colorado Car Truck & Rod Show in Montrose. Hosted, as always, by the Black Canyon Classics car club. It was a great couple days of cars and car people (and for me, lots of photos).

Here are some of the pictures that I took at Friday night’s pre-show gathering on South 1st Street. Don’t forget to look at my Photos from the main >Car Show< on Saturday. 

Enjoy!

As always, prints of all my photos are available to buy. Email me >SuzyTBo@gmail.com< for more information.

Motorcycle Trips and PhotoStudio 6

A couple of weekends ago I took a trip to the wonderful (and luckily close-by) Ouray, Colorado with my husband on our big, loud Yamaha RoadStar cruiser. We spent the night at the Box Canyon Lodge, which is an amazing place to stay if you ever get the chance. They have fabulous rooms, spring-fed hot tubs, amazing views, and since it is in Ouray it is within walking distance of everything. On Sunday we drove over Red Mountain Pass to the town of Silverton for lunch. Before we stopped we drove up Molas Pass a little way and found a caravan of Ford test vehicles at the overlook. Including a future model Mustang. It Was Gorgeous.

A few days ago I finally bought the editing software that I downloaded a trial of a long time ago and really liked. ArcSoft PhotoStudio6. It’s simple to use, feature-rich, and works wonderfully. It has HDR and RAW editing features, great enhancement ability and pretty much every other feature I could ask for. I only have two minor complaints: the first would be that you can’t reorder layers, they are stacked on the front as you make them, the second is that there are no fancy presets for HDR editing. The sliders work well, but some ‘artistic’ presets would be a nice addition. I’m more than happy that I finally decided to actually buy it.

Here are the results of the two combined – the trip and the software.
Enjoy!

In the Garage

Last weekend I tagged along with Hubby while he went down to the shop to work on our four wheeler. Naturally I had my camera with me and naturally I got a bit distracted…

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… 🙂 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.

Grand Junction SX

Last weekend was the (mostly) annual Grand Junction SuperCross. I had an awesome time doing pictures and running into some friends that I hadn’t seen for a while. There were a bunch of really close and exciting races. The track got pretty dusty in the last couple of races, which made for some tough shooting conditions, and some tough riding conditions. Here are my favorite shots from the evening’s races.

2013 Black Canyon Car Show

Another summer is here in Montrose and the local (and not-so local) car shows are popping up like daisies. This past weekend was the 18th annual Colorful Colorado Car, Truck & Rod Show. It’s one of my favorite local events of the summer.

Friday night’s gathering was a great time, as always. Lots of people showed up with their rides to hang out and relax for a few car-filled hours. Saturday was a pretty great turnout – even with the Alamosa show happening the same weekend. As was the case last year, I didn’t get to spend as much time at the show as I would have liked, but still managed to get some pretty great shots of a good portion of the cars. [Apologies to the 4×4 and British classes, and anyone showing up after 9am, I ran out of time before work..]

Without further ado, I give you – The Black Canyon Classics’ 2013 Colorful Colorado Car, Truck & Rod Show!


You might also want to check out my photos from Last Year’s Car Show or you might take a look at the Black Canyon Classics Car Club Official Site.

I do also have prints (framed or unframed) available for any of the photos on this page or on the rest of my site. Email at SuzyTBo@gmail.com for print/frame options and pricing.

Thanks for visiting!
