Home to 13 National Parks and 14 National Natural Landmarks, it’s no wonder photographers from all over the world flock to Colorado. Try as they might, it takes a local to capture the true essence of the State’s natural beauty.
Located in Estes Park, Colorado, photographer Alan Shadduck has made a career out of capturing “those fleeting moments in time” that make the state such a natural gem. Below are only a few of his inspiring photos, which you can see on his Instagram and Website.
