Last night I took a drive up to Loveland Pass to photograph some time-lapse sequences just for fun. If you’ve never been over Loveland Pass (or any mountain pass in Colorado for that matter) they’re not a place you casually hang out at during the winter. The summit of Loveland Pass reaches nearly 12,000′ and offers zero protection from wind, snow and the like. However, the views can’t be beat. So yesterday I bundled up, found the most scenic spot that didn’t involve any hiking, set up my camera and tripod and let it do it’s thing while I sit in a warm car hoping my camera setup didn’t get blown over. I realize how lazy this sounds but with the health issues I’ve been dealing with lately I’m not in shape to be out hiking around in sub zero temps so soaking up the views from my car is as good as it’s gonna get right now and I’ll take it! The resulting time-lapses are a work in progress but I do have some gorgeous shots from this past summer that I’d love to share. The beauty of Loveland Pass is that anyone and everyone can enjoy it. You can simply drive the pass and admire the jaw-dropping views, you can park on top and take a very short walk to enjoy even more expansive views or you can set out on a hike for miles to test your lungs and, you guessed it, experience out-of-this-world views.
…and a couple shots from last night. Just as beautiful but not quite as welcoming.
