This series was taken Christmas Eve morning, in the Wet Mountain Valley, SIlver Cliff Colorado. It's my way of paying tribute to Ansel Adams and his concept of previsualization. I envisioned this scene nearly year ago, as a wintery version of one of my favorite photos, Moonrise Over Hernandez. I imagined a cemetary with crosses at sunrise and moonset, as snowcapped peaks rose above a layer of fog and fresh snow. I knew that this cemetary near Westcliffe, Colorado, sitting beneath the 14,000 foot peaks of the Sangre De Cristo Range, would be perfect for my vision. I just had to wait for a light overnight snowfall, knowing that clearing conditions at sunrise would result in the fog in the valley. Everything went as planned, and it was a truly magical morning, and an early Christmas present!
