Ken Papaleo: X Marks the Shot

Colorado - Papaleo - Best Photos of 2018.




























  While fighting my terminal bone marrow cancer, I was able to get out a little in 2018 and the above photos are my favorite. Now that the holidays are over, I hope to get out on more shoots.

Colorado - "Together Forever"



  Around this time of the year I post a Christmas blog, but with my illness, I haven't been out there much.  So this year I'm posting this piece "Together Forever" of my art work. I took the photo and had a black and white print made. I then paint it with home made Q/Tips that I make out of cotton and tooth picks. This image was printed 24 x 36 inches on metal. It, looked so good that is sold at an auction, for "Walk With Me", for $1,000. It is dedicated to my wife, Pam.

Colorado - Frost Covered Trees.





After a night of fog, the trees were covered with a layer of frost. I went out and got some nice images.

Colorado - Papaleo Recovering.



My bone marrow cancer got the best of me over the fall season. I'm still working my way back and should be ready for the winter photo season. Until then please go back to my blog "X Marks the Shot". There are 10 years of Colorado photos, covering the state.
Thanks, Ken




Colorado - Day Tripper 11 - Fall on Loveland Pass.



"X Shot" information.
Camera - Canon EOS 5D Mark II

Went up to Loveland Pass right after the first dusting of snow, of the season. The ground cover had changed and the snow was a bonus. It was a calm day so I was able to get nice selection shots on the small lake put there. This pass is 1 hour from my house.

Mount Evans is about 2 hours from my home. It is the highest paved road in North America at 14,130 feet. We went up for sunset and the nice light and of course the wildlife. We didn't see anything all the way to the top. It was very windy and the animals might have bedded down already. Just before the sun went down, some mountain goats showed up. Pam, my wife and driver, didn't like the drive back down in the dark. The road has straight down cliffs, with no guard-rails.
