“This is the calm before the storm, caught along Co Rd 27, just north of Rand, CO. I was on the way home from a painting trip southeast of Walden in Rocky Mountain National Park. The paint was still flowing strong in my blood, so after indulging my camera I intended to paint these clouds and reflections. Within five minutes, however, the clear reflections broke into scattered ripples as the wind blew my hat down the road and easel nearly over. The rain came cold and fast then, so I retreated to my car; well contented with these photos, a spoiled canvas, and my retrieved hat.”
