Headwaters Of The Poudre

Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado

The headwaters of the Cache La Poudre River begin at Milner Pass along Trail Ridge Road and the Continental Divide. From Poudre Lake, the Cache La Poudre River will begin it's journey towards the South Platte River east of Greeley and eventually the Atlantic Ocean. Sunrise over Poudre Lake creates an opal like reflection in the smooth waters of the lake while smoke from far off forest fires colors the horizon of Rocky Mountain National Park in a glowing red. 'Cache La Poudre' means 'hide the powder' in French and the river was so named by early French fur traders who trapped and hunted in this area. Legend has it these fur traders were forced to hide or 'chace' their powder along the banks of river during a snowstorm. 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.
