One of THE coolest shots...

...I've seen on summitpost! What a great way to show the snowline. I'm suprised at how green it is down there, being Labor Day and all. Wouldn't have looked like this a few years ago I'll bet.

Re: One of THE coolest shots...

Wow, coming from you Todd says a lot. Todd, I was sitting at my desk at work and noticed a cool "Rockies" calender at a co-workers desk. I began to thumb through the pages and noticed a really inspiring shot of Afley Peak in the Ruby Range. I also found another shot of Escarpment Ridge in the same area that I really liked. I new i needed to keep looking through it because its not often where you find Colorado calenders with shots included that are so off the beaten path. A few minutes later realized it was your calender, and one of the best I have seen! I might hit you up some time on where you took those two shots. I also remember specifically, thinking about your Escarpment Ridge shot while hiking up Teocalli Mountain this fall. I think we later located a nice view of it with the aid of a GPS.



Thanks to all for the comments. I actually have another one of these that is stitched together showing a 180 view of the area. It's a cool shot but it would show up to skinny and small for SP.

Re: One of THE coolest shots...

Hey man, any time you want to know where a shot was taken, ask away. I don't really have "secret" locations like some photographers do.



Be forewarned: As you can tell, I'm not exactly the quickest at seeing whether someone has responded to something I posted, so if you don't get a quick response here, just e-mail me directly at toddatskylinepressdotcom.



BTW, are you talking about SCARP Ridge? Trying to recall what photo of that I might've published...

Re: One of THE coolest shots...

A few days after I posted that comment, I realized that shot of Scarp Ridge wasn't yours. But I'm sure you know which Afley Peak shot I was looking at! Maybe we will see an Afley Peak page here on SP.

Best pic I've seen of Maroon Peak, bar none

Seeing the sweeping lines of the snow meld into the greens of Fravert Basin is surreal. Well done!

You make me want to go there...

This image has cemented a change in my schedule for my visit to the US next year.



Any image that has the capacity to truly make you go out of your way to visit in the person that you are seeing via a medium is a powerful image.



It is a splendid photo.
