Oberon, Blow Your Horn: Fairy Trumpet

Two takes on a little flower I found Sunday up at Lower Cataract Lake. The Internet assures me this is a fairy trumpet.

Select color first:

Rush: Cataract Falls, Summit County, CO

A few years back Greg Thow took this majestic shot in Rocky Mountain National Park, and I’m still not sure it isn’t my favorite Greg photo ever. So today, while hiking the Lower Cataract Lake loop up in Summit County I came across Cataract Falls. Didn’t know there¬†was a Cataract Falls. But this scene reminded me of Greg’s RMNP shot. I don’t think I’m anywhere near that one in terms of power and artistic impact, but it’s nice to have pretty spots to practice, huh?

Two takes, color first.

Usually I have an idea of how best to crop a shot, but this one I’m not sure about. I think I like the broader crop for its context. Thoughts?

Aspen Sky: Cottonwood Pass, Colorado

If you’re a photographer in Colorado, it is required (perhaps by law) that you have two shots in your portfolio. First, you need the fall Aspens looking up at the sky shot. I haven’t nailed that one yet, but I did get this last week up on the Buena Vista side of Cottonwood Pass near Cottonwood Lake.
