Colorado

A couple of weeks ago I arrived in Colorado as the guest (and at the behest) of Nasim Mansurov, founder and curator of Photography Life. I also got to meet many of the PL Team, a truly talented and genuinely nice group of people. The autumn colours weren't in full bloom everywhere at that time, so rather than try to shoot the usual wide vistas, I concentrated on the available colour and light. It was a fairly intense and exhilarating experience, shooting the sunrise at one end of the day and the Milky Way late at night at the other (those shots will be in a separate post). Needless to say, sleep was rationed. Most of these were taken around the San Juan Mountains, the Million Dollar Highway and the Last Dollar Road en route to Telluride. I used my full complement of Olympus gear, including the 12-40mm F/2.8, 40-150mm F/2.8, 60mm F/2.8 and 45mm F/1.8, mounted on the E-M5.  Colorado is a beautiful state, mountainous in the south with an abundance of flora and fauna (some of which I will present in another post). The scale of the scenery is overwhelming at times and on occasion being seemingly the only two people around was a peaceful and humbling experience. I must thank Nasim for his incredible generosity, hospitality and relentless energy, driving me around everywhere to enjoy the scenery. He almost certainly got less sleep than the rest of us. The last image of me was shot by Nasim.
