Wow, that's fantastic, Rich! Bravo!! Greetings, Daniela
Greetings Dani, Glad you like the shot. I went up to the Continental Divide on Berthoud Pass and it was a freeway!! There was an unexpected amount of traffic going back and forth as well as cars coming and going in the parking lot. It was difficult to get a shot. I have discovered that the passes and ridges may not be the place to get photographs. There is light pollution everywhere on the horizon. I went over to Jones Pass which is adjacent to Berthoud and was able to get these shots. The light you see comes from the Henderson Mine which is on the base of Jones Pass. It was really pretty there and I didn't get the light pollution from Keystone, Dillon, Frisco and Breckenridge. It was only 20 degrees F and my feet got cold standing in the snow. I may have to get out my boots. Hope all is well with you. It is always nice to here from you. Thanks and have a great week. Cheers, Rich
This is lovely, i could spend hours counting stars!!
Greetings Lizab, Bring a warm coat, warm hat and thermos of warm drink. It would be very beautiful if you could keep the cold away. I love going out and doing this. It is a new experience every time. Thanks for visiting. Cheers, Rich
Very beautiful shot. Like
Greetings M-Miyagawa, Thank you for visiting my gallery and your wonderful comment. I am glad you liked this shot. There was light coming in from the Henderson Mine on the left, about 1/2 mile away. I used my headlamp to illuminate the trees in the foreground. It took me about 15 minutes to get the shot I wanted. That was about the time my feet got really cold!! But it was fun being out. Thanks again for your visit. I hope you are well and have a great week. Cheers, Rich
