Easter Sunrise Service 2013 at Red Rocks Amphitheater, Morrison, Colorado 031313 by Jason Claypool

What a great event! Over 11,000 turned out to what is normally a 9,000+ capacity facility for this year’s Easter Sunrise Service, and the beauty and grace of Red Rocks Amphitheater gets a bit of the credit for that. The weather was perfect with no breeze, clear moonlit skies, and a steady 30F until the […]

Black Widow and Bees 072212

We woke up to find this Black Widow hanging from a tall bit of grass in front of my porch, and were struck by the crazy bee activity on my biggest Russian Sage plant. I think this weekend I will spend some time in the morning light with a tripod to watch the bees. And […]


Some favorites from Red Rocks Ampitheater, Morrison Colorado

Some favorites from Red Rocks Ampitheater, Morrison Colorado

I have a few shots that I have been thinking about lately from the last few years that have not made it onto this site, until now. No matter whether it is attending a concert, an Easter Sunrise Service, watching Scramble Campbell paint, running the stairs with a hundred others on a weekend, or just […]


Lightning Storm in Lakewood, Colorado 071211

Lightning Storm in Lakewood,  Colorado 071211

I used my camera’s intervalometer and bulb shutter to catch an intense lightning storm in Lakewood, Colorado 071211, from my back porch. The wind was a bit much, so I kept a hold of the tripod and had to keep the lens wiped off, but I think I caught some intense energy that from that […]


Denver Botanic Gardens Portrait and Macro Session 111311

Denver Botanic Gardens Portrait and Macro Session 111311

I visited the Denver Botanic Gardens in late Fall/early Winter for a Portrait and Macro Photography session. I can’t wait to take a client there for an official portrait session, with the grounds in bloom. Even in November, the gardens were filled with so many stunning little surprises, and of course the greenhouses were such […]


Bumblebee and Wildflowers 080711

Bumblebee and Wildflowers 080711

Remember the surprise I mentioned on the path at my senior pictures and portrait shoot for Andrew and Catherine? We saw this gigantic bumblebee buzzing around the wildflowers and wild peas during my shoot with Andrew and Catherine on 080711. It was seriously well over an inch long, and you could hear him and his […]

Deer in Conifer 122608

We were finishing up Sean and Amy’s engagement shoot at her parents’ home in Conifer, and these deer just wandered into the yard. They pass through every day, looking for corn cob handouts. They just toss them off the porch, and the deer will come right up to them. So beautiful.


Clear Creek Canyon 011111

Clear Creek Canyon, west from Golden and Hwy. 6. My friend Rick lives off of Illinois St. in Golden, and told me how beautiful the trail along Clear Creek was, today, with all the newly fallen snow and the creek partially iced over. I took a walk from his place and up the canyon a […]


Missouri Sunset

Missouri Sunset

Exeter, Missouri Sunset PICT2682, originally uploaded by jasonsargo. This is the sunset on the way back from the cemetery in Exeter, Missouri, after my Grandpa Glenn’s funeral in 2006. The colors, the shadows and the virga on a cool evening only lasted long enough for my Aunt to scream, my Uncle to pull over, and […]
