About The Artist

Dale Harpe | A Landscape Artists Photographs

Artist Dale Harpe was born and raised along the white sand shores of Lake Michigan. Some of the most beautiful beaches and breathtaking sunset in the world are found along Michigan’s west coast. The hard wood forests of this northern state offer deep greens in the summer and with autumn arrives a wondrous collage of bright oranges and reds. The many hours spent hiking in the beautiful forests of Michigan and along its rolling surf inspired a deep appreciation for the awesome beauty of nature as well as a strong desire to capture it on film.

Sunrise At Heart Lake Near Gypsum  - COS109Dale’s first professional 35 mm camera was purchased in Japan while serving the US Army. During those early years, the novice photographer and his wife Penny had the opportunity to travel around Japan and photograph the countryside extensively. However, the birth of their first son Jeff (made in Japan, born in the USA) and three more shortly after, Dale’s passion for photography was put on hold.

In 1987, nearly twenty years later, Dale finally realized his dream of becoming a professional landscape photographer. With the purchase of both a Medium and Large format camera, Dale and his family moved to the Majestic Rocky Mountains of Colorado and has spent the last 20 years perfecting his talent.

This exceptional Landscape artist’s photographs include images from Canada to New Mexico to California, and everything in-between. His original photography has been featured for sale in galleries throughout Colorado, including Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Silverthorne, and Denver. In 2005 the village of Vail, Colorado contracted Dale to capture the beauty of America’s favorite ski destination. His work is now featured in the village Municipal building. In 2006 he was the “featured artist” of the town’s weekly summer farmers market.
