Wilkerson Pass looking West

An afternoon in January, the clouds created a patchy light and dark pattern. From Wilkerson Pass the light was blue and awesome as storm blew in from the west. The Sangre de Cristos are in the distance.

Garden of the Gods is hard to get a lousy photography. During the first fullmoon of March 2018, I set up the Hassie and shot Pikes Peak with Velvia. The colors pop on the slide film like you can only Photoshop on DSLRs.

Horseshoe Mountain

South and west of Fairplay lies Horseshoe Mountain. Mount Sherman attracts the climbers and skiers at 14K ft. But the headwall of this cirque is a geologic event. A glacier eroded the hundreds of feet high precipices and deposited a moraine for me to shoot over. The photo was truly black and white but I finished selenium in LR.

This is my first photo from the 4X5 Large Format Camera. It is looking orthogonally into Strike Valley. I captured it from one of the switchbacks of the Burris road.
