Photographs from Elevenmile Reservoir,  Colorado

 

Located in South Park, Elevenmile Reservoir State Park is pretty much in the middle of the state of Colorado (between Pikes Peak to the East and the Continental Divide to the West). Elevation is just over 8500 feet . The lake is 3400 surface acre's and approximately 6.5 miles long and 1.5 miles wide.

From Backroads of Colorado by Boyd and Barbara Norton  "South Park is one of those special places in Colorado. The valley today has numerous large ranches. In my travels I've found few places to match it for scenic beauty. As a photographer, I especially appreciate the interplay here of storms, clouds, lighting, mountains and soft lovely land. There seems to be a never-ending variety of photographic possibilities. I once chased a rainbow for several miles between Fairplay and Red Hill Pass, finally capturing it on film as it arched above a small farm. Sunsets and sunrises here seem to have a special quality of intensity of color."
