Last Dollar Dawn by Nate-Zeman Last Dollar Dawn by Nate-Zeman
To purchase this image as an exclusive limited edition print please visit my website @ WWW.NATEZEMAN.COM

I took this shot at dawn before the sun came up. It was really cold and I don't have a filter holder for the lens I used on this shot. I had to hand hold the ND filter with my fingers that were pretty shaky from the cold. I tried my best to hold it still for the 12 or 13 second exposure I took. Luckily a few of them came out sharp!

Uncompahgre National Forest - Telluride Colorado

The landscape, and the contrast between the orange, white and blue, is absolutely gorgeous. A million-dollar shot. :]
Just curious, since it seems apparent to everyone else- why call it 'Last Dollar' Dawn?

All I have to say is wow.
This photograph is amazing. I never usually comment on things like this but looking at this, I just 'fell' into this photo. That's the only way to describe how this makes me feel. I am immersed in it.
wonderful
