You wouldn’t think that venturing out in sub-freezing weather would be much fun, but right before New Years, Ryan Wright and I ventured down to the Gunnison/Crested Butte area to add some much needed winter scenes to our portfolios. We hit the area just at the right time and a beautiful blanket of fresh powdery snow covered the area and made for wonderful holiday scenes!
Venturing up the Highway 12 along Coal Creek toward Kebler Pass the hills were filled with frosty snow covered branches. Looking down from the road there was this amazing scene with a snow covered creek, some tracks where an rabbit had made fresh tracks and a forest of frosty pine trees. The quiet of the early morning was broken up by only the water from the creek moving below the snow.
