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 […]

Adam Carolla Mangria signing at Applejack Wine & Spirits, Denver / Wheat Ridge, Colorado 030213 by Jason Claypool

Adam Carolla stopped by Applejack Wine and Spirits for a signing for his new Mangria line of sangria, before a show on the Adam and Drew Tour at the Paramount that night. I’m guessing there were about 500 people in line, each one of them Adam’s biggest fan from his work on KROQ as Mr. […]

Thanksgiving 2012 - 21lb. applewood-smoked bacon-wrapped turkey with orange juice brine and white wine steam in the Pit Barrel Cooker

I think the title says it all. For Thanksgiving this year, I made a 21 lb. apple-wood-smoked bacon-wrapped turkey with orange juice brine and white wine steam in my Pit Barrel Cooker. Brined about 3 hours, smoked about 10 hours overnight…you can imagine how good this turkey is! EDIT 112412: One problem, though, this is […]

Anthony's Chevelle, Loading Up For Bandimere, Denver, Colorado 101312

Anthony’s Chevelle 101312 by Jason Claypool. I haven’t gotten to play around with shooting a car for a while, and I couldn’t help myself catching these shots while Anthony was loading up his car for a race the next day at Bandimere! Anthony showed me around his garage a few weeks ago, and I was […]

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 […]

Pardon the diversion…I couldn’t resist a quick snap and a personal post tonight! That’s 3 lbs of crawfish, spread on a table and steaming hot! We were thrilled to find this place today, and couldn’t believe we hadn’t even known that a cheap and very tasty crawfish shack had been open a few minutes from […]

Coffee Cupping at Noa Noa Coffee in Golden, Colorado 033112

This was a lot of fun. Rick Myers and the owner of Noa Noa set up this cupping, and invited the roaster to come in and educate the masses a bit about four different coffees he specializes in, and some different techniques and equipment. As a HUGE espresso fan, it was so interesting to find […]


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 […]

Ghin Asian Blend & Sushi - A Night Out With Friends in Lakewood, Colorado 071611

I had a great night out at Ghin Asian Blend & Sushi in Lakewood, Colorado, with Rick and Kristin Myers, and some friends and clients he has worked with lately. Rick arranged a sushi instructional night with Mike at Ghin to teach us all about sushi and some asian/Hawaiian cooking techniques. I can’t recommend this […]

These are just scans of the print copy of that article, which are just so detailed and beautiful, compared to […]

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 […]

Bear with me…

Bear with me…

Bear with me. I am just getting started with this site, and don’t know exactly where it will take me, yet. I know my focus will be on two things, though- exposure for my photography and services, and my brewing. Besides my family and friends, of course, my camera and my fermenter are my passions, […]
