Springtime In The Rockies

Springtime in the Colorado Rockies, a time of the year which I have always loved. Recently went up to the Mount Evans Wilderness area to try and capture the change of the seasons and to see if winter was still holding on. In some places it certainly was, to say the least. Though Spring was certainly in the air and the combination of the 2 seasons made for some interesting conditions. What astonished me was a couple tourists wading through the river where I shot the long exposure shots at....folks that water is freezing cold! Probably barely above freezing, and the result of spring melt off from the thanks I will pass with doing that anytime soon in bare feet! A great time though, and it was nice to experience the resulting conditions!
