Description
Mornings are usually the time I spend on top of Mount Evans photographing a variety of wildlife. This day started off no different as I made the three-hour trek to my favorite Colorado photography location. After photographing for a couple of hours, I decided to find a quiet spot to take a nap and then headed down the mountain to do some work and have lunch. After working for several hours, I realized I had stayed long enough to capture the afternoon light as well. There wasn't much unique to photograph so I started to make my way down when I realized the clouds in the sky were going to go epic. Now to have a mountain goat or bighorn sheep in the frame. The 15 or so goats at the top all went down the other side of the mountain to their evening resting area—none lined up in front of the colorful sky. But then I noticed one last goat coming down the mountain. I only grabbed one frame of the goat but it was all I needed.
