A slideshow of shots by the Denver-based photographer
showcase little-seen Colorado landscapes on the plains, and in the foothills and suburbia.
Think of Colorado,
and you probably picture the snow-capped peaks of the Rockies. But nearly half of the state lies on the high plains to the east of the mountains. The terrain is no less scenic, especially when seen from above.
"I love looking at the landscape and understanding how everything fits together," says Evan Anderman
, who spends hours taking aerial photos from the cockpit of his plane, 1,500 feet above the plains.
His gorgeous images, taken during some 200 flights, capture the breadth of the plains and its industry. Fields of wheat, millet, and hay wave in the breeze. Cattle graze on rangeland. Factories, mines, and oil rigs dot the land. "Every square inch out there has been affected [by industry] in one way or another," Anderman says.
