Originally photographed in the 1970's and 80's, three portfolios of 24 prints were printed in 2008 at 20"x16" and are titled, signed numbered and dated on the verso.
The Elk Mountain Range portfolio is a series of B&W aerial photographs of the backcountry surrounding Aspen, Colorado.

Original digital photos are available as limited edition digital pigment prints
