It is time again to get back to my Morning Coffee posts. One of the most enjoyable things I have done when it comes to blogging is simply sharing one of my daily adventures which starts each morning with a great cup of coffee.
For those of you who know me know that last year we moved from Jackson Wyoming to Afton Wyoming in order to obtain horse property for our daughter. Although we now live in the Star Valley area Jackson is a frequent adventure in itself.
For those of you who may be new to our blog posts Star Valley is rich in western history. It was for centuries a place with the Native American people who lived within travel distance came to hunt and fish during the summer months. Then in the mid to late 1800’s the area was settled by those heading west.
The Oregon Trail in its many facets came right through was is now our back yard. On this morning I decided to adventure not far from my home to an old homestead I pass all the time. Each time I pass by I say to my wife and myself that I need to stop and take a few photographs. Although I really have no idea of the history of this quint yet humble home I just love it’s setting.
I wonder by whom and when this home was built. What about the large tree setting next to the this humble cabin? Did the family that built it plant it and if so was it for shade or maybe just aesthetics. Did they have children and if so whatever happened to them? As you can see today it is a much different place. The home is empty and the stories that must have surely been told throughout the years are now secrets of this lonely yet beautiful setting.
Wyoming is truly a magical place. Some great adventure abound just about everywhere in the state. Star Valley is rich in Western History some good and some not so good. But on this morning I did stop and take the time to watch the sunrise, enjoy more than one cup of coffee, ponder the past and took some pictures… enjoy.

Custom Print Inquiry
Earlier this month I entered some of my photos from the past couple of years in a photo contest here in Afton Wyoming. I just received an email giving me the good news. The photo you see here is my daughter Brynn loving on her mare Rebecca Star in a small creek here in Jackson Wyoming. This picture was taken this past summer and I thought it was truly representative of the story of the Wyoming Cowgirl. No belt buckles, cowboy hats, shirts, rodeo drama just a girl and her horse. I am humbled this picture was chosen as the winner in the Cowboy & Cowgirl Category.

One of the most enjoyable things I am able to do where I live is to walk out my front door and I can find so many wonderful things to take pictures of. The Yellowstone Basin is truly one of the most beautiful parts of the United States and photographic opportunities are simply everywhere.
As I have achieved a higher level of skill for this craft so too has my desire to keep up with the latest camera technology. Today’s DSLRs are simply amazing. The quality of the image taken is almost as real life as viewing it through your own eyes. I have been waiting for some new camera introductions later this year but my older Nikon was crying for help. So I decided to pull the trigger and new camera now and then watch for future releases.
I settled on the new D500 which if you look into it is simply amazing at the depth of capabilities built into this new body. With a burst rate of up to 10 FPS (Frames Per Second), 151 focal points, 4000K video and more I can’t wait to try it out in the wild. I am sure I will be sharing some new stuff real soon. I am currently awaiting an order of new Gallery Quality Acrylic Mounts that are being added to this website for sale as I write this. Acrylic Mounting is nothing short of amazing!
For several years I wrote a blog post almost daily and I called it “Morning Coffee”. I had so many people tell me how much they enjoyed these post many of which can still be found on this website by clicking on the MENU LINK “BLOG” and then in the search field search “MORNING COFFEE” and a list will render for your reading pleasure.
This new camera is inspiring me to bring this back to all of you and I hope… no I am sure I can find some really cool things to share with all of you.
