It’s so easy in Colorado to turn one’s eyes to the mountains when seeking beauty. The grandeur of the peaks is undeniable, impossible to overlook. Others look to the sky shimmering with clouds and breathtaking sunrises and sunsets. Yet beauty is everywhere if we take the time to look. Even right at our feet.
Erik Stensland, professional photographer in Estes Park, Colo., takes magnificent photos of Rocky Mountain National Park. But with peaks rising all around him, he still thinks to look for the little things, like these few blades of dry grass in a snowbank.
“The universe is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.”
