Photo and caption by Matthew Colver
I took this photo while driving up Independence Pass between Aspen and Leadville, Co. on October 13th 2012. People don't generally connect this type of snowy weather and October, but at over 11,000 ft. elevation it's already winter. When I got home and looked at the photo there was no color except for a little green on the tree in the foreground. The weather conditions made everything else black and white. So I decided to save the photo as a black and white.
Location: Between Aspen, and Leadville, Colorado
