This is the third of 5 rock formations that sit on the west side of Boulder. perhaps, I should say stand. I shot this walking through 2 feet of snow in Chautauqua Park late on afternoon as the snow ended and non one elase had walked where I walked – and the wind had not yet disturbed even the smallest piece of snow.

I Love the energy of the sky and the magic of flower, the reflections inponds and the feel of cool wind on my skin. Born and raise in Toronto, I now live near Boulder, Colorado

    I miss the Flatirons, Greg, and this shot is a beauty! A unique slice of the rock and beautiful capture of snow.

    I also miss powder skiing; Alaska isn’t known for powder! That and short winter daylight…I’ll never be a good marketer for Alaska skiing, and nothing beats Colorado. (Although Utah runs a close race.) Beautiful shot.

  • thank you Jan – I put the wrong image up LOL – so another of the same formation is coming

  • so – now it is called the Third Flatiron – same formation and I do understand about Alaskan skiing. I came to Colorado to work at a ski area a long time ago and never went home

    Beautifully framed in the vertical format, Greg, as well! I’ll check to see if your switch affect the one in my favorites list. I worked as a ski bum at Breckenridge and Vail in between a few college and university years, and loved it. I understand!

  • I worked on patrol at Monarch and Crested butte. It was an amazing time.

    Mr. Greg, THIS is why you have become such an inspiration to me. Your work is not only eye catching, but it’s emotional and thought provoking! You truly are an amazing photographer.

  • It was a source of inspiration to me – to be able to see these formations just minutes away from my house. I had to walk some pretty steep hills to get to those places, but I knew exactly where I wanted to go. I belive the great photographers are persistent with their intentions and willingto do what most won’t. For one thing, get up and scrape ice off a a windshield and put on snowsuits to keep from freezing.

    You are truly lucky to live so close to such beauty, but to be honest, it’s your ability to capture the beauty that awes me. I agree with your belief regarding intentions and willingness to go above and beyond to get that perfect shot.

    Keep up the great work and know that you are a truly gifted photographer and a real inspiration to me!!!
