Welcome to my blog! I created this site in 2008 to provide a place for showcasing my photos and to provide information or links helpful to other photographers. As time has passed, I've added music videos and information as well. I will occasionally make comments, but will not preach or keep anyone from making comments of their own. Everyone is entitled to an opinion and I love the feedback! My goal is to make this website a regular destination for anyone who loves photography and music and wants to see what I've been up to.

These were taken recently a place near Woodland Colorado called Farish Recreation Area. It is an area with small lakes for fishing and is restricted to active, retired military, reserve military and their guests. There is a fee to get in.  My friend Bill has been there to fish in the past and said it is a beautiful place and maybe I would like to get some photos.  These shots are views of Grace Lake.

My Most Liked Photo on Facebook So Far

On my business website, Michael Bluhm Photography, mbluhmfotos. com, I have hundreds of photos but one in particular was posted on a Facebook group, Now THAT'S Colorado! To date it seems to be the most popular image I've posted to that group. I'm not sure how much visibility this website gets, but here is that photo. It's Alta Lakes Campground near Telluride, Colorado. The large trees in the center are actually on an island.

This is the Christmas card that I mailed out this year. It was taken at Middle Shooks Run Park, named after the creek that flows through it. We have a lot of parks, big and small in Colorado Springs and this is one I usually walk through on a daily basis, weather permitting.

Settings For Taking Night Time Photos of Lights

First of all, I wish everyone out there a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2019!

Follow the steps and you will get super memories to share. Here is the link:
