Crusted Butte


I continued on to Crested Butte. It looks like a German village – houses in a beautiful lush valley with surrounding mountains. It really is one of the most pastoral places I’ve seen. Unfortunately I wasn’t in the mood for photography, so you’ll have to go there yourself to find out…
I also thought a lot about photography on this trip. The perception of space and color is very different between a human’s and a camera’s. But that’s only the first problem – the second is the difference between how a picture comes out, and how a person interprets what’s in the picture. That’s why it’s so difficult to take a great landscape picture – that’s where the biggest transformation occurs between what a person who is in the place the picture is being taken feels, and what a person watching the picture perceives.
But enough of that – what’s probably the last picture from this trip is that of a dam in an amazing valley, after sunset.
