Independence Pass

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Independence_Pass_(Colorado) This could be landmark or landscape, I guess. it's an interesting place, at 12,000 ft. Hard to breathe there, and scary since the road is right on the edge with no guardrails, sometimes narrowing to one lane that serves both directions. Sno...

Re: Minnie's 52

This week I got Abstracts. I'm gonna post two of them, because I had abstracts on my other 52 project site too, and it seemed unfair to use the same one for double duty. So here they both are, for the heck of it.

Re: Rocky Mountain High

It appears that the exposure and color balance of the snow is right on. Sometimes it's hard to get the proper color balance of snow, blue or gray seems to be the issue with most of us, at least me. The limb is of no distraction to me. Was it possible to have gotten a shot at a lower point of view, ...

Re: Serenity

And beauty is always there to be found, if you have the eyes to see. I always enjoy your “Above the Clouds” series. It looks like you could walk out and step across that stuff. Lovely.

Elk Love

It’s that season in RMNP. The guys with the biggest racks are bugling and whistling and pushing competitors our of the way, keeping their ladies together. We saw harems as large as 45+ but this guy only had about a dozen. I know I have noise and detail issues due to shooting in near darkness at terr...
