It was the first weekend in October of 2018. I drove up Independence Pass Colorado in the middle of the night. On the way up I hit an unexpected snow storm. At the top I decided to stop so as not to drive off a cliff to my gruesome death. The visibility was zero at the top due to the snow. So I decided to take a nap. I was a little frustrated because I thought the clouds would ruin the trip. After about an hour or so the skies parted and the magic began.
I spent the next 40 minutes taking pictures of the Milky Way Galaxy at 12,095′ in 20° f temperature. There was also a cool tropical breeze that was nice.
But the moment was short lived. The clouds were upon us again. I decided to risk falling off the mountain and drove down into Aspen. Maybe no clouds would be present at the Maroon Bells. I believe it was around 2 am at this time.
My instincts were good. Got some great photos. But that is a story in it’self and for another time.
After an adventure, I drove back up the pass and went back to bed around 0430. The sun came up and I awoke to awesome.
Coming soon vlog on the entire Independence pass saga on “Full Roll Photography”
Quick Coffee break and it is off to Florida.
The tides of life changed and abruptly I had to move. A month later I found myself in Ft. Myers Florida on a week of a full moon.
It was a great night taking photos at veterans memorial bridge cape coral.
While shooting the moon, I looked forward to photobashing my trip at Independence Pass and Cape Coral.
