Over the years I have created bookmarks as an alternative to a business card which feature images of Denver. I just created a new bookmark for 2019, and was looking back at the images which I have used on the images over the years. Every few years I look for an image which will match the size needed for the bookmark as you will see below.
2009: Evening over Denver
It was suppose to be a nice evening on the 4th of July in Denver, however a storm moved in just prior to sunset leading to a muted sunset over the city. With an art festival (my first) coming up quickly I needed to get the bookmark to the printer. This image after sunset was used for the first bookmark in the series.
2011: Denver Sunrise
Arriving at one of the more popular locations for sunset photographs of Denver, the sky was clear and the wind brisk. Soon the colors of the sky started to change as civil twilight passed. I noticed a few small clouds a little north of my location and thought it would be nice if those moved south to be in the image. It then came to mind this was the start of the system moving into the city over the next twenty-four hours which was to bring snow to the city. After about ten minutes more clouds started moving in and I was wondering if enough clouds would develop in the right location for sunrise. As sunrise approached at 7:29 MDT, more and more clouds started to move into the frame and then shortly after sunrise the image was captured. Full Image: Denver Skyline at Sunrise
2013: Denver Sunrise from Sloans Lake
In 2012 I directed a lot of time photographing around Sloans Lake just west of Downtown Denver. As September approached I knew based on the proximity of the lake to downtown it would give an opportunity to photograph sunrise over the city. Near the autumnal equinox there were fires in the western states which blew smoke into Denver giving an orangish sky at sunrise as I captured the sunrise over the Four Seasons in Denver.

2016: Denver Skyline at Sunrise
Upon the arrival at the outlook over the city the colors in the sky were starting to change color quickly as just enough clouds were in the sky for color to be present over Denver. This image was just prior to sunrise and as I have done in the past I let the buildings go to shadow for the most part in this image. Full Image: Denver Skyline at Sunrise in November
2019: Sunset at Denver International Airport
I found a location on the east side of the airport where I was able to capture the light after sunset one evening as the Jeppesen Terminal at the airport was illuminated against the Rocky Mountains. On the plains there was some wind that evening, and in the distance you can see the wind blowing the snow on the higher peaks in the mountains. Full Image: Sunset at Denver International Airport
If you are interested in receiving some bookmarks (at no cost) send me a note through the contact page indicating so and the address where they should be sent. I am limited on some of the older bookmarks, but will gladly send out some variations to you.
