Although I created the gallery a couple of days ago I get to officially introduce the location today - what fun! After I had finished working last year I headed back to the UK before heading of the the USA for Christmas and, as it turned out, New Year Eve. The latter wasn't planned and only thanks to the chaos at Heathrow Airport on that fateful Sunday, 19th December, did it happen.

Five days later on Christmas Eve we landed in Denver, Colorado, to go skiing at Copper Mountain with my cousins and their two young sons - fantastic times! Copper Mountain is really rather high, which was something I was unaware of when I first arrived. The top of the mountain is 3,366m high (roughly 12,000")! Still it's nothing compared to Everest so I don't know what I'm exclaiming about.

It was a pretty desolate place right at the top of the mountain - very barren, rocky with not much other than ourselves there. There was also plenty of wind so it was never fun staying stationary for too long! This is a black and white conversion of the top of the mountain. As you can see there really isn't much about.

I've got a new idea, which I'm going to explore this week and see if I can have something new to share before weekend is out.
