Full Color – San Juan Mountains

One of the most beautiful sunsets developed as  I was surrounded by golden aspens at their peak! In front of me lay the rugged Needle Mountains that was all lit up with a fiery red alpenglow… Surrounded by gorgeous colors,  the beautiful light enveloped everything around me including myself as I stood their in awe at God’s creation in full motion…

Unlikely Survivors – Early winter storm in the San Juan Mountains

An early winter storm with bitter cold temperatures with snow snuck up on the San Juan Mountains killing every last wildflower or so I thought.

While hiking at 12.5k in the brisk wind, I stumbled across a small patch of paintbrush partially covered in snow. They had managed to survive the killing frost.

The snow insulated them from sure death as I sat there with them shivering in the brutal cold as a sunset was developing which helped to cheer up the now winter like landscape.  

Already longing for next year….

Unlikely survivors…

 

Solar Eclipse 2017

This was the perspective from my vantage point high up in the San Juan Mountains of SW Colorado. It clouded up during the peak but fortunately a little hole opening up in the heavens and showcased the crescent sun barely visible seen in the upper center section of the photo. The darkness in the middle of the day was like nothing I had ever experienced. Totally different then just an overcast day. You could tell something unique was occurring… This photo was shot during the peak of the eclipse.
