Dawn At St Malo

Fine art prints & posters available of this photograph

So we decided to make a return early in the morning to catch the sunrise at St Malo outside of Estes Park, Colorado. Needless to say getting up at 330am was well worth it, as the day would yield some excellent shots!

The weather was completely wild and insane, when we arrived. We were on the leading front edge of a snow storm with the the sun making one heck of an amazing sunrise behind us. Wild as heck with the storm blowing down over the mountains, but the color and light was remarkable, we were just far enough and in the outflow of the storm, that the snow was falling and the light completely diffused. If we had driven maybe a mile west to behind the church, we would be getting hammered from it all. It was something though, watching the sunrise do battle with this snow storm, all the while trying to click the shutter in wind gusts that were very strong. Thank God for Puffin Pads is all I can say!
