    Artist Statement

    My wife, Margo Pinkerton, and I lead photo workshops all over the world called Barefoot Contessa Photo Adventures. We were scouting locations for our Fall Aspens and Ghost Towns of Colorado workshop and came across this scene. On the first go-around, the light was not appropriate, so we returned two additional times, the third being the proverbial charm. The light was just spectacular.

    To the questions about cameras, lenses, etc., that's not what is important. It's the photographer's vision that should always come first. Equipment is a tool, just as a brush is to a painter. Without a vision, there is nothing.
