The View Down Independence Pass

When on a trip last weekend to the Collegiate Mountains in Central Colorado, I made a side trip up the Eastern side of Independence Pass. The highway was only open for a few miles before it dead end at a huge pile of snow, stopping for a few photographs I took this one looking east down the highway as the sun was rising on this very nice morning. http://www.mjbauerphotography.net/colorado-gallery-1/

Amazing Morning in Collegiate Mountain Range

Last week early in the morning I made my way to the Northern Collegiate Mountain Range, it didn’t take long for one amazing sunrise to happen behind this old cabin. This area of Colorado can get pretty busy with people in the Summer months, but at this time of year it seem like no one was around for miles. http://www.mjbauerphotography.net/colorado-gallery-1/

Upper Half of Hoosier Pass

Heading to the upper half of Hoosier Pass a blanket of clouds started to roll towards us, the lights from the passing cars and houses off in the distance was lighting up the area. I was only able to pull off a couple of photographs before the clouds took over, feeling pretty good with some of the photos I pulled off on this evening, it was time to pack up the gear and head home for the night. http://www.mjbauerphotography.net/colorado-gallery-1/

Quandary Mountain Stood Tall Under the Stars

With the homes below shining bright, Quandary Mountain stood high above on this star filled night, with Spring like temps in the air this night didn’t feel as cold compare to previous night shoots. Hanging out next to the highway a group of cars would pass on by then everything would go silent, with the sounds of the frozen snow with each step this had turned into one very relaxing night. http://www.mjbauerphotography.net/colorado-gallery-1/

Star Lit Sky over Rocky Mountains

As we made our way up Hoosier Pass we pulled off the highway to try and capture the star lit sky, the homes where lit up in the valley floor as the glow of the tail lights of passing cars lit up the snow. The clear sky’s only lasted for a short period of time before clouds started to roll in, but this turned out to be another very nice evening to get outdoors. http://www.mjbauerphotography.net/colorado-gallery-1/

Early Morning View from Peak 8

Early morning under a star filled sky we lit up our headlamps, added skins on the bottom of our skis we then set off to climb peak 8. About half way up the mountain the sky started to light up with the morning sunrise, with bright pinks then reds lighting of the snowcap peaks ahead we pushed on. After a good hour we finally made it to our destination which treated us with a pretty amazing view in every direction, after taking a few photographs then repacking some gear, it was time to point the skis down the mountainside to get in some pretty amazing early...

Night Glow of the Griffith Lodge

Night Glow of the Griffith Lodge

When crossing the bridge the glow of the Griffith Lodge was shinning bright on this full moon night, it was one of those evenings I felt like I could stay out all night shooting photographs. But knowing I had to get up early the next morning, I knew it was best to head in for the night. Feeling pretty relaxed and good about some of the photographs I pulled off, it didn’t take me long to drift into one very deep sleep on this night. http://www.mjbauerphotography.net/colorado-gallery-1/

Moon Overhead Shining Bright

Moon Overhead Shining Bright

Stopping along the trail on this clear star filled night, the moon overhead was shining bright high above, every once in awhile a gust of wind would come down the mountainside then everything would go silent. With the crunching of the snow at my feet when walking along the trail, this had proven to be a great call to get out on this night. http://www.mjbauerphotography.net/colorado-gallery-1/

Old Cabin in Woods

Making our way down the trail we stopped by a old cabin to pull off a couple of night shots, the moon was shining bright on this night which was lighting up the crystals in the snow. When taking this photograph the wind stopped just for a moment letting me pull off this shot, with mild temps this was the first night shoot in awhile where I didn’t freeze my fingers off which was a welcome change. http://www.mjbauerphotography.net/colorado-gallery-1/

Night in the Colorado Rockies

With the stars shining bright over the snowcap Colorado Rockies, the homes below where lit up bright on this nice Winter evening. I decided to make one last stop before heading home for the night, finding a good place to pull off the road, I took this photograph looking towards the West. It’s this kind of Winter nights living in the Colorado Rockies that I seem to enjoy the most! http://www.mjbauerphotography.net/colorado-gallery-1/
