I was fortunate to be able to spend a few days in Telluride Colorado. If you’ve ever been to Telluride you know that this old mining town is tucked away and one of Colorado’s best kept secrets. Sitting at 8,750 feet the views are spectacular and just waiting to be explored with a camera.
Our sunrise outing took us away from the paved roads of our resort to the bumpy winding dirt mountain roads. We found spot where others were parked, camping, and still settled in for the morning. Guessing that many of the persons anchored down here hunters we were surprised when a guy appeared from the back of a truck with a RED Scarlet camera and proceeded to setup with us to shoot the morning show.The morning sunrise petered out on us and never really developed. The clouds had a low hanging layer that shrouded the sun and really didn’t light up the cloud canvas as hoped. Wilson peak was hidden in the clouds and produced a beautiful image none the less.
Calling sunrise finished we said goodbye to our friend with the RED camera and headed to Alta lakes. It was here that the best photo opportunity of the trip emerged. A beautiful mountain reflection at the edge of one of the lakes. One image for the wall and the trip was a huge success.
We set out for a sunset shoot with great promise as there were plenty of scattered clouds but by the time we were on location the clouds had left us. We had to settle for some early Fall foliage at Trout lake and a mountain cabin image from Dunton Hot Springs area.
Can’t wait for my next trip to Telluride!
