January Surprise

Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado

I've witnessed countless breathtaking sunrises while photographing Rocky Mountain National Park. I'm always amazed at how vibrant and breathtaking they can be when conditions are right. Many times I've been out in the field photographing a sunrise and have thought to myself 'it cant get anymore colorful than that'. Well Rocky continually proves me wrong providing colorful sunrises even more breathtaking than the last. On this mild January morning, the skies over Longs Peak and Upper Beaver Meadows were clear a few hours before dawn. About an hour or so before sunrise I could detect a layer of thin cloud cover starting to form over Rocky while the skies to the east remained clear. I held out hope that the high clouds would provide some nice subtle color when the sun began to rise. I had no idea how dramatic sunrise would turn out to be once the sun rose in the east. The winds began to pickup and a lenticular cloud formed over Longs Peak. When the sun rose, the entire range glowed pink, orange and red. To this day, it's one of the most colorful and dramatic sunrises I've ever had the privlidge to photograph in Rocky Mountain National Park. 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.
