The Picture of Clear Air
Colorado National Monument, Colorado, 2014
Unless you're already familiar with the landscape, it's almost impossible to tell from this photograph that a city of ~60,000 people lies between the red rock of the Colorado National Monument and that bright white band near the top of the frame, the snow-covered Little Book Cliffs. The new snow that fell the day before left the air completely clear and covered nearly everything with a snow blanket ranging from an inch to several inches deep. Photo © copyright by Greg Owens.
