An Evening in Butler Gulch

Some of you may remember my trek up to the top of Jones Pass last summer.  I thought I would share another image from down below in Butler Gulch.  This image was taken around 9pm that evening.  Justin Balog and I were capturing some long exposures and light trails of the vehicles still venturing up and down the Jones Pass Rd.  This image shows a truck’s light trails coming down from Jones Pass and a campsite in the valley below the top of the pass.  It was just one the wonderful Colorado evenings giving way to the light of the full moon.

  • Nice capture Rick! Love the motion in the clouds and the tiny light flare from the truck’s headlights.

  • Fantastic shot Rick! That blue is perfect. I love the motion in the image as well. Wonderful capture Rick!

  • Great shot Rick! I agree with the “panel” love the motion in this!

  • I like the headlight trails. They add a bit of mystery and intrigue to the shot. Also, the colors due to the moonlight are rather cool.

  • That is so cool Rick! Really creative and well executed!

  • Cool shot Rick. That cobalt sky is freaking sweet.

  • A great night indeed!

  • Lovely! The stars are great.

  • Incredible shot. The light trails add a nice touch and really you have to view this larger to do it justice. The stars sparkle. Outstanding.

  • Great capture Rick. Moving clouds in an evening sky is such a cool look.
