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.
