Rob Hazzard

This scene was captured not far from my hometown in southwest Colorado.  I live in Ohio now and don’t get back often.  I miss the mountains.  I had the location in mind and in fact tried to capture the scene a few times.  One year, the weather didn’t cooperate.  The next year, it was a light snowpack and not what I had in mind.  This year, it finally came together with a heavy snowpack for the year and good weather.  I was able to capture the snowcapped San Juans with a summer Milky Way.  Growing up, I guess I always took the scenery for granted. Not anymore.
