I just returned from a rejuvenating, nature-fueled trip out to Colorado. This was definitely more of a vacation and less of my usual mode of immersive travel. Though I've been to the Denver-Boulder area several times, this was the first time I actually got to venture into the Colorado Rockies. My family and I stayed in Glenwood Springs and most of the hiking and exploring we did was in Glenwood Canyon and around Aspen. I've been to many beautiful parts of the world and this is in my top 5. The air is so fresh and clean, the sun so bright at these elevations—being surrounded by such pristine nature is deeply restorative. The American West really is a marvel. I'd love to spend more time out there, just taking it in.
All these images were captured on a Sony A7RII with Leica M mount primes, most notably the 21mm Super Elmar, an outstanding lens for nature photography.
