Last week, I made a trip to Shrine Pass, to make some images of wild flowers. Early in the afternoon, I stopped along the Shrine Pass Creek. The shade allowed me to make some long exposure images to get the “feel” of water flowing down the creek.
I found a location, where there was a waterfall, only about 2 feet high!
Shrine Pass work its way down to the town of Red Cliff. This is located close to highway 24. I made this image of the bridge over the creek, placing the sun behind the bridge so that I could capture some detail in the bridge.
Turning around, I headed back up the pass. Stopping at one location, I noticed that the sun was shining through the aspen forest, casting long shadows of the tree trunks. This light would not last long as the sun was sinking behind the valley.
I made a short hike across the meadow, where this boulder was located.
In the valley above the boulder, I stopped to make this image of the aspen forest with the remnant of some clouds in the blue sky. I made a few images, including the cliff in the foreground before the mosquitoes started biting.
Heading out of the Shrine Pass valley, I stopped again to make some images of flowers. Getting out of the car, the sun was shining through a single pine tree at the side of the road.
That was one of the last images that I made, before shooting some video of wild flowers at the top of the pass.
