Rocky Mountains, Colorado State, USA
The Rocky Mountains in Colorado State are a small part of the mountain range which has the same name. The Rocky Mountains extend over a distance of 4830 kilometers in the west part of the North American continent. The highest peak, Mount Elbert, located in Colorado rises to 4401 meters. The Rocky Mountains were formed about 55 million years ago. Since then, glaciers and erosion by water have shaped this region of mountains and valleys. For us photographers, the Rocky Mountains are an extraordinary space for besides the scenery, we found flowers and animals. We also went to the Rocky Mountains to photograph bears but in vain. We took pictures of wood partridges and elks came from the north to find green pastures. It is very difficult to take photographs in low light because the mountains are very high and they often mask the sun before it reaches the horizon.
