    I love the feeling of this piece, the black and white option was a good choice as it really draws both on the harshness of the landscape as well as its beauty.

      I see this scene all the time, and love it, but this time around there was the snow being blown around the mountainside by strong winds that made me stop abruptly to photograph it, and with the lighting I had, it screamed for a B&W

      thanks, This mountain range is definitely very rugged and WIIIILD, most of it has been untouched by human hands

      You're very welcome!

      Would love to touch those mountains, but I assume it's very dangerous and lethal!

    I miss my rockies. Im not familiar with this peak, but it look like solid back-country.

      what part of the Rockies? Guyselmann Mountain is in the northern Gore Range close to Green Mountain Reservoir about 10 miles north of Silverthorne, CO. The Gores are definitely a very rugged mountain range

      also, I used a long lens to get in close to the peak, this is actually just a subpeak of the total mountain itself

      I'll have to get out to that area. I've lived for some years in the Denver/Boulder area, and mostly on a peak called 'Crow Hill' just east of Bailey, Co. So ive done the peaks like Baldy near fairplay, and hiked around Gunnison, estes, and all over pike national forest. My wife and I /copperrein are currently in Ohio but we're planning a trip this summer through the rockies, tetons and finally the badlands. Camping most of it. I'll definitely check out silverthorne if i can. I've never traveled up that way other than to do some work at the Keystone resort.

      nice. try to get up to Piney Lake which is north of Vail, it is also part of this same mountain range, just on the other side of this mountain. It is Red Sandstone Road along the northern frontage road in vail about 16 miles, follow the signs to Piney River Ranch. The Gores are part of a designated wilderness called The Eagles Nest Wilderness

      you might be shocked with one thing though, that whole Summit County area has been devastated by the Pine Beetle, the entire Ponderosa Pine forest has been wiped out it is so depressing everytime I go up there and see that, I could only imagine what would happen if there is a fire up there, Vail Pass is largely untouched yet, but they are hitting in Piney Lake area, luckily that area is heavy in Aspens too. They are actually starting to hit hard here in the Front Range now too
