When clouds roll in, magic light happens. There’s something about that soft light that can make an image sing sweetly. When storms roll in, the light is even sweeter.
Harley, Rick, Jennifer, Jade, and myself were sitting on a side of a hill in no less than 50mph winds trying to make images. For some reason, that was a good time and we were laughing at the sheer miserableness of the conditions. I could not make a 4×5 image in these conditions at all. No way. At one point, the wind was so strong it picked up my little digital camera and bonked it in my face.
Jade and I feel very lucky to have been able to see the sights we did, and I want to give thanks to Jimmy Gekas and Brent Doerzman for making our first fall journey into Colorado a wonderfully enjoyable trip. Thanks to Rick Dunn for clueing us to this view.
