We go to the mountains for a lot of different reasons; solitude, exercise, adventure, the challenge. You can find all of those things any given day in the hills. It can be foggy, rainy, overcast, or a blizzard, you’ll still get your mountain experience. Then there are days when you get all that and a big old gooey cherry on top; when the clouds part (or in this case, stay in the valleys thousands of feet below) and you get to experience nature revealed in all of it’s grandeur.
Last Friday night while on a mission to get ski turns on August 31 and Sept 1, Rory Robison and I were treated to one of these rare and almost overwhelming moments of beauty. Here is my best effort to capture and share the experience. Enjoy.

Each of these images is a high resolution panorama ‘stitched’ together from 10-20 original photos. The full sized images have mind blowing detail equivalent to an 80 Megapixel camera. I can’t wait to make some large format prints, it’s going to be a treat!
As with all of my work, prints are available. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
