Description: This is the Wheel house of the Gold Coin Mine- in beautiful downtown Victor, CO.  If the Steam Punk folks miss this, then they really blew their trip. These 12’ diameter “pulleys” dropped and lifted their cargo on a flat cable to  almost one-mile deep. This is truly: Victorian “High-Tech”. You can see the Gold Coin Club at extreme frame right of the main Pan.

Description:  The Lake and Gazebo at Green Mountain Falls Colorado. Detail of Gazebo included. A really “hometown” feel, with plenty of parking, and right off the highway (but enough off to excluded 98% of the people wandering around the area)  Dress it, and it’s anytown USA.

Flying W Ranch- Waldo Canyon Fire

Description:  The Flying W Ranch has been a major attraction in Colorado Springs for nearly 60 years. On Tuesday, June 26th, 2012, it was destroyed by the Waldo Canyon Fire. The Ranch will be re-built, but I was lucky enough to be offered the opportunity to photograph the main visitor’s area less than two weeks after the catastrophe. The owners are willing to entertain offers to film on the premises, but only for seasoned professionals taking proper precautions and with adequate insurance.
These photos are historic. They may be useful as a study for Art Directors, as well as representations of a possible area for production. .. The original Pans offer sufficient resolution to create over a 1080H image that could pan over 20 (1920) image widths. I have placed Pan6 first, because of the stunning overview it offers.
The Owners will begin re-building, so if the area might be useful for a production, time is an issue: so the sooner the better.

Description:  The “Great Wall of Woodland Park” This is a road cut when entering Woodland Park from East Hwy 24. A very interesting color and erosional pattern makes this a photogenic section of Road.  It often has quite nice cloud shadow mottling. The amazing “ghost” car in the detail gives a good idea of scale.
