Sneffels Range, San Juan Mountains, Colorado.

Now we are talking!  I think we have found the amazing colors Colorado is known for.

Yesterday we moved to Ouray, Colorado – what a beautiful town!  I’m sure I will be posting photos of it eventually.  But, the trees around here are far healthier, looking great, and at or near peak.  The next few days should be a whirlwind – stormy weather is in the forecast, we need to cover as much ground as possible as this might be a wonderful, but small window of opportunity.

    Thanks a lot everyone!

    Funny, shortly after Ryan wrote his comment, we had the pleasure of meeting him at Kate’s in Ridgeway – glad you recognized me it was fun talking with you. Great place for breakfast by the way.

  4. Hey Ron,

    The meadow b/n the foreground and the background really makes this feel differently to a more standard ‘fall color in the forest and mtn shot’ .. and, of course, some killin’ light.

    Looks like a great trip man .. travel safe, and get ready to wax ’em up when you get home. 🙂

    Cheers

    Thanks a lot Carl,

    Yeah I’m ready to wax’em up when I get home – I actually have a real wax iron – no more old cloths iron!

  6. Would you consider taking on a project of photographing all of Colorado’s 14ers? I collect postcards and have only found those of 33 of the 54 to date. Bet you could sell a bunch, especially if you had them from lower elevations, near the tops and from the tops! Let me know if you ever do it.

  8. Yeah, it would be a long project. I keep hoping someone will do it. A lot of people climb all of the 14ers and I think there would be a market for them. Drives me crazy when the postcards don’t identify the mountains . . . and of course sometimes they are misidentified.

    When I sent that request I was going through your photos quickly and thought you lived in Colorado. Do you live in Seward? What a spectacular state Alaska is, for sure! Lots of wildlife and wonderful wildflowers like here in Colorado. I miss the wildlife when we’re in Sedona and the ancient ruins when we’re here in Colorado. We’re so lucky to have both.

    Hi Joni,

    Yeah, we live in Seward, Alaska. This was my first visit to Colorado except for a family trip as a 10 year old. It was beautiful, I enjoyed seeing a photographing the area!

    I have been to Sedona a few times – that area is equally as beautiful in a very different way. You are very lucky to have both!

    Thanks for the comments!

  10. I absolutely love this! I loved living in Colorado! This would look great on my living room wall! But first I have to look at all your other pictures before I decide…thinking of a big, big, the biggest you can do! 🙂
