I became a photographer with the dawn of the digital age. My first camera was purchased for doing real estate marketing. It was thanks to the hours we spend on the road selling the Pikes Peak high country that I began to focus more on the landscape, the flora and fauna of this magical place. Many hundreds of photographs later, I understand that reaching people’s hearts through the focus of my lens is the real beauty of photography. And the High Country is so beautiful as to break your heart. I now carry my camera everywhere and even plan vacations and road-trips specifically for photo opportunities ( and rock hounding!).Visit our real estate website at www.OhGetMeAHome.com for the best in private fishing and Colorado recreational properties! Call my husband, Broker John Lloyd Magoon, High Country Realty, Florissant, CO. at 719-748-1099 if you are interested in mountain property in this beautiful corner of the world.
This is a link to one of my favorites: “Country Road Take Me Home.” Just click on the link to enjoy the photo. I love this autumn shot of aspens on Country Rd 100 near our home, I shoot it every year. It’s always different yet always beautiful!.
The words and music of Colorado’s beloved John Denver are a testament to the beauty of our world, no matter where our country roads are found. Mine are around Pikes Peak and the High Country behind it.

Since I began shooting the High Country in 2004, I have become a published author and photographer, producing articles and accompanying pictures for the Park County- wide visitors guide, Summer in the Park and Winter in the Park, published by the Arkansas Valley Publishers Group. I became a journalist at the Fairplay Flume ( same owner) and focused my lens on community events as well. I have recieved the greatest satisfaction from these activites. I am currently writing for the monthly, The Ute Country News, distributed throughout Teller County, CO.
My art has become intermittent due to chronic health problems, so new images posted here are cherished and celebrated as evidence of my continuing physical ability to embrace life.
