More fall, ya’ll

“Bierstadt Moraine – Pano” by Richard Hahn

A friend reminded me today that there’s more than one professional photographer based in Estes Park, Colorado. No surprise, considering Rocky Mountain National Park is right outside the door.

Richard Hahn is the name, and he shoots both landscapes and wildlife. Check out his website to see what a true professional can do with can’t-miss subject matter.

That’s “my mountain,” Longs Peak (the peak I climbed 42 years ago), in the photo above. The foliage in the foreground should be looking like this very soon.

Rising to 14,259 ft. (4,346 m), Longs Peak is the highest peak in RMNP.

I was smitten at a very young age. Your landscape is equally gorgeous, and I’ve often thought it would be my second choice.

... and that's my two cents
