Sunrise at Governor Basin

Governor Basin was amazing a couple of weeks ago. The trail to Governor Basin was a bit muddy, but the drive paid off with lush greens colors and amazing wildflowers which offset the deep rich colors of the ore and soil within the basin and the Saint Sophia Ridge. This is sunrise at Governor Basin near Ouray, Colorado in the Umcompahgre National Forest.

The funny (and not so funny) thing is when I went to grab my camera and tripod out of the back of the 4Runner, I realized that my tripod didn’t make it on the trip. I accidentally left it at home.  Luckily I had my Gorillapod with me and improvised to capture a sunrise shot.  The nice thing about the Gorillapod is that it was low to the ground and was able to pull in some of the low lying wildflowers for the image.
