Description

  • Image was taken at The Paint Mines near Calhan Colorado.

Bill Sherrell
Colorado

My wife and I moved from Texas 15 years ago because we loved the mountains here in Colorado. We've vacationed here a couple of times and we were awestruck by the beauty that was here. So we decided to move here and I wanted to document on film, (and now on digital format), the beauty of Colorado, and I have since found this to be my passion. Photographing the landscape is a lot of hard work, (looking for the most dramatic composition, and then waiting for just the right light before you snap the shutter),but it is also extremely rewarding for me. It is my hope that anyone who views my images will see the same beauty that I see, and be inspired to get outdoors and enjoy the magnificent scenery that is here in this state, and maybe even do some photographing themselves!
