Scenic Road Trip, Independence Pass, Colorado

I thought I’d share some photography today! While I was in Colorado last month I took a couple of days to just go out on scenic drives and photograph. These photos are from the trip out on 9-9-10, from Breckenridge, through/around Leadville and then out over Independence Pass and into Aspen. We had some spectacular clouds that made for great photography, which was awesome, and also made for some showers, which wasn’t quite as awesome. Dodging the drops was a challenge from time to time but it was still a great day. Here are a few of my favorite shots from that day:

I hope you enjoyed today’s “mini” tour…I had fun re-living the day as I was sorting & posting these images!

Happy trails!

  1. Beautiful (and very peaceful)!! I especially like the one with the close-up of the purple flowers, it gives me the feeling of actually “being there”. Very nice!!

    1. I’ve had the opportunity to go twice now, I’m hoping to be invited back again next year. There is SO much to see, I feel like I’ve barely scratched the surface of all the beautiful areas there are to explore! Good luck, I bet you will get there someday too!
