About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

Buckhorn Cutoff - Aspen 1963

Buckhorn Cutoff - Aspen 1963

This is the "Cutoff" to the Buckhorn trail near the top of Ajax. It goes with the other Aspen winter 1962-63 pics submitted earlier. This favorite one was saved in a different place and I just now found it. 35mm Kodachrome slide. View full size.


Thanks for the picturesque words, Mattie, but instead of trudging and crunching I was on skis hopefully silently gliding (when I wasn't stopped to take pictures) :-)

Cold and clear

I can almost hear the crunch, crunch, crunch of the photographer trudging through the snow to get this beautiful shot.
