Winter Brilliance at The Coke Ovens
Colorado National Monument, Colorado, 2013
So named because of their resemblance to the brick ovens built to make coke from coal, The Coke Ovens at Colorado National Monument are just some of the outstanding rock formations of Monument Canyon. I made this image after an early December storm dropped nearly a foot of snow on the upper parts of the CNM. Red rock + snow + warm sunshine = a great day. Photo © copyright by Greg Owens.
