Rocky Mountain Tsunami

Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado

High winds and turbulent weather go hand in hand with one's daily exsitence when situated at over 14,000 ft above sea level. Rocky Mountain National Park's highest peak, Longs Peak is no stranger to high winds having recorded the state of Colorado's highest wind gust at 201 mph in 1981. While the winds aren't raking the 14,259 ft high summit of Longs Peak with that kind of velocity this morning, the summit would be a forboding place to be. Lenticular or mountain wave clouds form along the Front Range when high winds are present in the upper atmosphere. This particular morning, a beautiful wave cloud setup just to the east of Longs Peak. As this wave cloud grew, it gave the appearance of a large tidal wave about to overtake Longs Peak. Sunrise colored this lenticular cloud in beautiful hue of orange and red. Photo © copyright by Thomas Mangan.

Fine Art Prints Available

I strive to produce the highest quality Fine Art Prints. My Fine Art Prints are produced on a Fuji Semi Gloss photographic paper. The image is first prepped and adjusted by the photographer to represent the most accurate representation of the image and my vision.

The image is then sent off to be printed using the latest technology. The photographic paper is exposed with either LED lights or lasers then developed in RA-4 chemistry. This is done on a Lighjet or Chromira printer. This process allows for some of the cleanest, most accurate, archival prints available today.
