Moments like this - I live for!
The South Valley Park in the Denver Front Range area is one of my favorite spots to shoot red rocks in the snow.
The cloudy white sky is the ideal backdrop for me to zoom all the attention on the rock texture and color. The mirror image is so appealing to my eye - not only for the obvious beauty, but for the added conceptual treat of being able to imagine the geology below ground that creates the reality above. These rocks pre-date the dinosaurs and were pushed up out of the deep Earth by the formation of Colorado's Rocky Mountains. The red color is due to a massive iron content and the bumpy texture is caused by water eroding into the soft sandstone. Which amazingly enough was once an ancient sea bed!
