Snow in the Colorado Rockies

I shot this photo of the Colorado Rockies in Estes Park, Colo., during a trip to the Denver Area several years ago. We drove up to the Rocky Mountain National Park area and due to the snowy and windy weather most of the park was off limits for us. So, we drove our trusty rental car up some country roads looking for good views of the mountains when we came upon this scene.

The wind was literally kicking up a storm and the snow twirled ferociously around the mountain tops. I used the longest lens I had, I think it was a 200m at the time, to isolate as much of the mountains as I could. I was imagining the entire time what it would be like to be on the top of the range in the blowing snow.

Thanks for tuning in and have a great day! Rob

P.S. If you want to see some incredible photos of yesterday’s Pony Swim in Chincoteague, Va., check out the Facebook page.

Apparently the day started with nice weather and then a thunderstorm set in. There are some very dramatic photos of the ponies being led thru the water during a very heavy downpour.Challenging photo conditions to say the least, but the photos look like something out of a Perfect Storm type movie. Congratulations to the people who hung in there and got the ponies to their destination safely and shot these great photos!
