Autumn Snow Pines
Photo By James Hamilton

  • Title: Autumn Snow Pines
  • State/Province/Region: Colorado
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Pike National Forest
  • Nearest Town: Cripple Creek
  • Brief Directions: From Divide, Colorado go south on Highway 67. There are a few dirt roads that perforate Pike National Forest off of that highway.
  • Best Season: Autumn
  • Description: I photographed this scene in September, 2000 with my first digital camera, a 1.3 MP Olympus D-340L which I had purchased 2 years earlier. A friend and I were out to image some fall color after an overnight snowfall in Pike National Forest. When the clouds began to part and the sun broke through them I knew I had a short window of time before the snow would melt and evaporate from the pine trees and the ground. We were approaching the 10,000 foot level and the mountains surrounding us were also snowcapped but I wanted to capture the valley below and the clouds above. Although by today's standards a 1.3 MP camera is a dinosaur, it still took a pretty good picture (of course a little "tweeking" in Photoshop helped)!
  • Gear: Olympus D-340L Camera, Olympus 5.5mm F2.8 Lens
