In August 2010, Norm Cooling took several photos of Colorado mountain goats—including "A Lofty Look Around"—near the summit of Mt. Evans, one of Colorado’s 14-ers. Using a Nikon d70, with a Nikon 18-70mm/3.5 lens, and shooting in raw format, Cooling converted the photos to .jpg files, making minor corrections for exposure. The sunlight perfectly accents the goat’s white "fringe" fur. Cooling is the Fremont County Court Judge and thoroughly enjoys landscape and nature photography.
