Photo of the month: Angus Leith, Telluride, Colorado.

Canon EOS 1Dmk3, 24-70 2.8, 1/1000s f6.3

We didn’t know what we would find in the backcountry when we arrived in Telluride and Silverton last month, but this heap of decrepid mining debris, known locally as ‘the trestle’ was a must shoot. Finding an angle to show the might of the ageing timber structure was the easy part of getting the shot. For Angus, prep’ing an in-run that actually ramped up onto the trestle and then over several gaping holes in the ruin to get to his take off was another matter entirely. One thing is for sure: I’m guessing the gold and silver miners of the area a century ago would never have envisaged their constructions ending up being mined like this. Catch the story from this trip to Telluride and nearby Silverton mountain in White Lines magazine next winter.
