Before shooting this image, I spent parts of several days scouting out the ideal location to show the remarkable symmetry with which the Flatirons had been uplifted. I returned at sunrise but only had time to expose one sheet of film of this scene before the rising sun moved behind a thin band of clouds. Although I have returned to this location on other occasions, I have yet to equal the beauty of my first effort.
