Frozen Pasque

Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado

Colorado is known for having some of the best wildflower displays in all the United States. Each summer hundreds of wildflowers bloom in a progression that starts at the lower elevations and works its way higher up the mountainsides. One of the first blooms one will see in Rocky Mountain National Park is that of the Pasque or 'Easter' flower. The Pasque Flower typically blooms in early April and takes its name from the French word for Easter which obviously coincides with the first blooms of this delicate wildflower. Being that Pasque Flowers bloom so early in the season they can often be burried under the snow of heavy spring storms of thick frost from a still cold night. I found this Pasque Flower blooming in Horseshoe Park one morning in April. It's beautiful petals not yet open but covered with a cystalline frost from a cold April night.

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.
