supermoon eclipse

My take on the supermoon lunar eclipse from a night hike up to Mt. Sugarloaf. The moon eclipse from atop the mountain was cool enough, but what struck me was the clarity of the Milky Way and stars when the passing was happening.

At the finish of a beautiful Saturday morning trail half marathon + (14.06 miles) that zigzagged through switch backs and up mountains and spread out through the desert, all while a fleet of hot air balloons glided above us.

a few days in vail

I had an amazing few days in Vail, Colorado, with photo colleagues long overdue to see, for my good friends Lauren and Tom's picturesque and perfect wedding. Here's a peek!

back to it

It's the annual time of year - school is back in session, summer is slowly turning to fall, and our little campus community is bustling once again with fresh faced students. Here's a look at orientation and move in day last week Thursday - hopefully I caught some of the energy and excitement of the day.

Also, a mockumentary on the prestigious orientation greeters we made:

And a look at our brand new website!
