Two years ago, I was on a one night cross country ski hut trip from Mount Crested Butte to Gothic. It's not a long ski, about four miles, mostly descending on the way in. Raynor Czerwinski, an extremely talented photographer, renowned for his lucid landscapes, from Crested Butte, lead five of us to Gothic. Raynor's energy, photographic experience and teaching skills, (as well as his culinary skill) resulted in me capturing these night images. I took me two year to appreciate what I captured. Sometimes, it takes time to allow the 'expectation of the moment' to fade and the to let the image speak anew.
