ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
Fall in the San Juans is spectacular and my favorite time of the year here. There is cool crisp weather, the first snow up high, and the beautiful colors from the tundra above timberline to the farms and ranches on the valley floor. Each year Barbara and I visit old favorites as well as new places to capture images of this color pageant. This exhibit is organized the way the fall colors advance from the highest elevations to the lower ones.
Thus the images are grouped by:
The Exhibit also includes:
Hope each of you will enjoy these images as much as I have in documenting that colorful season.
ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER
Larry is a retired geologist that has resided in Ouray since 1970, initially part time but now full time since 1999. He started photography in graduate school (by necessity to document outcrops and rocks for his thesis), but the major shift came in the mid-60s when he took a Creative Photography night course from Jim Milmoe (Colorado’s leading photographer at that time, and still today) at the University of Colorado in Denver. There was a new, specific topic each week to go out and photograph, bring those images back to class the next week, and have Jim critique them one by one. That hands-on class became an exciting lifetime hobby.
