Colorado Wildflowers - Butler Gulch Sunrise 9

Add to Lightbox Download
I left my house a little before 3:00am to hike up Butler Gulch one last time for the summer. I wanted to arrive at this location and shoot the Milky Way over a small stream (which I did and was quite pleased with). But later on as the sun's first light began to break in the east, the high clouds lit up and made for an amazing sunrise. This Colorado image will have fond memories for me as I stood and tried to take in this beautiful land as best I could. It is a picture that will stay in my mind for years to come. Up on the mountainside, just out of the view of this photograph, deer were watching me. This was a good morning.
