Monte Vista Wildlife Refuge/Blanca Peak - Colorado

Another from a few weeks back, shooting the Sandhill Crane migration through Colorado in the San Louis Valley.  Out for the evening flying of the cranes from the surrounding grain fields back to their nightly roost in the wetlands.   The clouds shrouding Blanca Peak provide the backdrop.

Single frame processed in Lightroom 5.

Double RL Ranch / Dallas Divide - San Juan Mountains - Colorado

This past fall, driving over Dallas Divide.  Morning view, looking over the highway just below, out of frame, towards the Sneffels range.  Ralph's cattle gathered near the gate.  Nice lines created by the fencing, I couldn’t resist jumping out of car, climbing up the embankment a grabbing this shot.  I wish the sky had a little more interest in it – I'll just have to check the view in the future whenever I pass this point along the highway between Ridgway and Telluride.

Ranch Land East of Ridgway - San Juan Mountains - Colorado

On the way up Owl Creek Pass Rd, heading towards Silverjack Reservoir.  The hay bales still out in the pasture.  This must be some of the most scenic ranch land in Colorado.  Mt. Sneffels shrouded in clouds in the distance..

Multi-Colored Stand of Aspen, Near Silverjack Reservoir - Colorado

For those familiar with the area, this is along the road that goes past Silverjack Reservoir.  There is this field where there is a turnoff for the Silverjack Reservoir overlook to one side of the road, and a smaller road that goes off on the other side, up towards Rowdy Lake.  Looking across the field, there was this beautiful stand of aspens, with streaks running across showing all stages of their fall colors.

Monte Vista Wildlife Refuge - Colorado

A few weeks back, went to check out the Sandhill Crane migration through Colorado in the San Louis Valley.  Out for the evening flying of the cranes from the surrounding grain fields back to their nightly roost in the wetlands, I was able to catch this scene as it passed the full moon.

Blanca Peak and the Sierra Blanca Massif - Colorado

This image is best viewed large.
I visited Monte Vista area over the weekend to see the Sandhill Cranes that are migrating through the San Luis valley.  On Saturday evening, as the birds were beginning to take flight from the local fields where the feed for day to the wetlands where they roost for the night, the sunset began to take on a beautiful color on the clouds and mountains to the east.  We shifted our attentions to the mountain landscape, and caught some of the Sandhill Cranes as they crossed the scene.

At 14,345 feet (4,372 m) Blanca Peak is the highest peak of the Sierra Blanca Massif at the southern end of the Sangre de Cristo Range, located in Colorado. It is the fourth highest peak of the Rocky Mountains, and the eighth highest peak in the contiguous United States.

Processing Notes: A five image bracketed set processed with Nik HDR Pro, using their Deep 2 preset.  In Photoshop, the result was overlaid with a single frame from the original bracket set, and the HDR layer’s opacity reduced to 36%.  The exposure of the bird alone was reduced to increase their contract against the sky.  Magenta luminosity slightly reduced to deepen the purple hue a touch.

Spruce Ridge - San Juan Mountains - Colorado

View large for most impact.  A wonderful view I came across while heading back to Ridgway for the day.  A nice mix of yellow an green aspen with some red scrub oak thrown in, too.  Evening shot of Spruce Ridge, taken from west side of Owl Creek Pass Road. 

Single frame processed in Lightroom 5.  16x9 crop.

Pinnacles Between East and Middle Forks of Cimarron River – Near Silverjack Res., Colorado

View large for best impact.

Another shot from this past fall - same gorgeous day as my three previous posts.  And there are more to come from that same day. 

Of interesting note, two days after this shot was taken, the foliage on this glorious group of aspen trees were mostly black and dark rust brown, due to an overnight freeze.

Single frame processed in Lightroom 5.  Minor exposure and contrast increase, a little reduction of blue luminance combined with a little increase of saturation of blue only, to increase separation of the sky.
