"Nature's Bouquet," photographed by Max E. Carlson, was captured in June 2001, approximately 6 miles west of Crested Butte (near Irvin). The photo was taken with a medium format Pentax 645N, using Fuji Velvia slide film. A tripod was used to allow for a long exposure—roughly 3 seconds, with an f-stop of 22—to blur the moving water. Carlson is with the firm of Vandemoer & Carlson, P.C. in Julesburg, Colorado. His photo website may be found at www.photographytothemax.com.
