End of the Gold Rush by Nate-Zeman End of the Gold Rush by Nate-Zeman
I encourage everyone to please view this image on my WEBSITE I use a dark neutral background that makes viewing art much more pleasing to the eye.

To Purchase this image as an exclusive limited edition print, please click HERE

There is fresh snow on the high mountain peaks, a cold bite to the air, the last of the golden leaves cling to the thousands of aspens below Capitol peak. A sure sign that the short but beautiful Autumn season in the Rockies is coming to an end. Winter is on its way. High above the normally lush green valley is one of Colorado's 54 "fourteeners", Capitol Peak". Part of the staggering Elk Mountains, Capitol Peak is the 30th highest mountain in the state, and surely one of the most impressive.


Capitol Peak - Elk Mountains - White River National Forest - Colorado

Gorgeous! Our trees are really just starting to turn here in Switzerland so the best colors have yet to appear. But have some shots from the Berner Oberland that I'll be posting--we went up to the glaciers but the colors were beautiful below them! Have a look in few days.

Nate, your ability to spot scenes like this and capture them so beautifully is just inhuman. You're some kind of camera wielding demon. When are you writing a book, so I can buy it and read it 150 times?

Better on your website, that's right. But it's a great image anyway, from the foreground to the background, and the sky is just wonderful ! Great sharpness, great light, great atmosphere...
Good job !

Great layering of light to dark from FG to back, it's nice that the leaves fell off in that order to give your comp some nice balance. Nicely executed shot man!
