Calypso Time

Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado

I have many favorites when it comes to Colorado wildflowers but I have to say I'm partial to the Calypso Orichid or Fairy Slipper. These dainty but beautiful wildflowers can be found blooming amongst the forest floor as the winter snows melts in Rocky Mountain National Park, typically in early June. They are tiny and while they can be found blooming in groups oftentimes they grow in single sets or pairs. I highly recommend when you encounter a grouping of Fairy Slippers when out on a hike you get down on your knees and take time to examine these beautiful wildflowers. I found this particular set growing along the East Inlet trail not far from Adams Falls. Most hikers I encountered walked right by this beautiful group of flowers missing out on their delicate beauty. 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.

Ordering prints is simple, safe and secure. You may order your Fine Art Prints safely and securely using any major credit card through our PayPal managed site. You will not need to enroll in PayPal in order to purchase Fine Art Prints. Prints are typically shipped within 2 weeks of purchase. Box and Laminate mount photos take longer to complete and typically are completed within 4 weeks of placing your order. Lastly, I offer a money back guarantee on all my products. If your are not satisfied with your order, I will refund your purchase within 7 days of delivery.
