Those are some of the more awesome shots I’ve ever seen of the Grenadiers, and Rolling Clouds is amazing! I do miss being close to the San Juans!
Thanks Jackson! Yeah clouds like that are pretty rare to see in Colorado, I’d say. When those started rolling over the ridges like that, you know I was scrambling for the telephoto lens! 🙂
I always say, before I go out to shoot, if i come back with one shot I love, I will be happy. That shot you took of Stony Pass would make me happy for years.
Thanks Greg! Yeah I’m the same way – stoked to get one good shot. This trip though, just kept on giving!
Wow, Jack, hard to pick a favorite from these. They’re all superb. Well done!
