After shooting Ethan and Sarah’s wedding on Saturday, we headed out for our little road trip :) As mentioned in an earlier post, things didn’t go too well between the weather and the closed roads : ( We ended up coming home last night (Wednesday) instead of Friday night. Mayz was having some trouble sleeping through the night and since we’re not skiers, a lot of the ski towns started to look the same. We did get a few breaks in the weather here and there and got a few fun pictures.
The rest can be viewed on our website here:
Colorado 2008 Photos (View and Order Prints)
This first picture was actually taken at the ranch where Ethan is staying. It was up in the mountains near Golden, CO and the trees were covered in frost…it was spectacular!!
It was extremely windy most of the time we were out there. In this photo, you can see the snow blowing off the trees.
I just loved the angular morning light coming in on this photo:
We found this little church on the side of the road. The morning sun lit up the church, while the storm clouds loomed in the background
This is a photo of part of downtown Central City, CO. It’s an old gold mining town that is now rather sad. Most of the business were closed other than a casino inhabited by lots of old people.
On our last night, we stayed in Breckenridge, CO where the weather was actually pretty good. We found a beautiful hotel up on a hilltop called the Breckenridge Lodge and Spa. This is the view from our room which only cost $89 for the night which is MUCH cheaper than anywhere else in Breckenridge. Apparently they are just about to close for some major renovations but stayed open for a couple more nights due to all the snow (ski resort area), and they were just trying to book up the rooms, so we got a great deal.
