As the sun painted the Colorado sky with the first strokes of dawn, I ventured into the lupine fields of Crested Butte. With great care, I composed a symphony of purple lupines, their petals adorned with morning dew. Through the lens, I captured their intimate details, from the closest bloom to the distant meadow. Beyond the sea of lupines, Mount Crested Butte stood proudly, framed by cotton candy clouds. This image is a harmonious blend of exposures, bringing the entire scene into focus, a tribute to the morning's beauty. Photo © copyright by Rich Voninski.
