We took our niece up to RMNP and Trail Ridge Road so she could see and touch snow for the first time. The scenes were amazing, minus all the dumb people from Texas, Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, etc. We just drove over or around them. No worries.
Right before I took this picture Brooke had no concept of snow. Snow was an empty word with no memory attached to it and no feeling. Now she knows many things about it, its shocking sting, the numbness and its glare.
Here I used the miniaturize setting on my camera. It's sort of cool. It would look better on different subjects, but from the day this was the best option. Some guys, desperate to ski in July, couldn't pass up this half-mile run at the top of Trail Ridge.
