I didn’t really start out to make a project of photographing Longs Peak, in general I don’t consider myself to be a project-based photographer.  However, having spent a fair amount of time in Rocky Mountain National Park (well, at least in the Trail Ridge Road area), I’ve really became drawn to these vistas of the peak.  I say drawn, because I don’t push myself to go to them, rather, they really do draw me in like magnet.  Over time, I’ve amassed many iterations of these views, but I’m still not tired of them and feel compelled to keep on photographing them.  I find it fascinating the way you can keep one element of the composition the same – the peak – and still get nearly endless compositions by varying the other elements in the image.  And in this manner, a project was born.  I didn’t go looking for it, it found me.
