Colors Of Box Chasm
Photo By Matt Angiono

  • Title: Colors Of Box Chasm
  • State/Province/Region: Colorado
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Box Canon
  • Nearest Town: Ouray
  • Brief Directions: Visit Box Canon Falls just outside Ouray, CO, and follow the metal walkways back through the canyon, all the way to the falls.
  • Best Season: Winter
  • Description: Treading through snow, I made my way into the depths of Box Canon, where I found this amazing scene in December. The small strip of deep blue sky overhead gave the perfect light for a long exposure as the sun was setting. The biggest challenge here was finding a place where the mist would not cover the lens in water, as many shots were ruined from this. Exposing for 20 seconds allowed the colors of the rocks to melt through the water, a perfect compliment to the static frozen ice.
  • Gear: Canon xTi, 17-40mm f/4L

    Thanks Alena and David! I took a lot of shots of this landscape, but placing a person in the shot imparted the sense of amazement and exhilaration I was trying to capture. Merry Christmas!

    Exhilarating photo Laura! Being in the foreground gives the viewer the sense of how vast and spectacular our earth is. The image also allows for the outdoor photographer to reflect back on times...
