NEW Series: Sopris Unveiling

Larry Weidel

A Bird’s Eye View of Mount Sopris

Like a sculpture, Mount Sopris can only be fully appreciated from multiple angles.

This breathtaking and photogenic mountain stands sentinel, anchored to earth by a vast wall of mountain peaks and ridges. I got the opportunity to capture it from a bird’s eye view.

From these images, we get a sense of the peak’s majestic dominance within the valley. The deeply scooped cirque beckons the eye to explore the inner terrain of the treacherous rock face. The dark shadows of the stones and bright highlights of the snow illuminate the mind with delight.
