Sunset by Nate-Zeman Sunset by Nate-Zeman
This is Boreas Pass. In the 1860's it served as a route for prospectors during the Colorado gold rush who crossed from South Park to look for gold. It was eventually widened and turned into a railroad. Today its just a dirt road that holds one of the best kept secrets in Colorado (shhhhh) This was taken around 12,000 ft. Summers are incredibly short up here and flowers like this are visible for just a few short weeks in summer.

Boreas Pass - Breckenridge, Colorado

is it the altitude that makes your pictures so clear or do you do something to them?

I love the bright colors of the flowers, and how the photograph includes both small detail and an expansive landscape. I also like how the flowers match the color of the sun's lower rays. :)

The image itself is beautiful, especially how the flowers seem to mimic the sun's colors (beautiful capture there btw), however reading the history of it made it pop that much more. Thank you!
