Bluegrass in the Mountains

We usually try to hit at least a couple of bluegrass festivals every year and this summer in Colorado we only found one that sounded pretty good.  As it turned out the festival in Westcliffe (which is a tiny ranching community at the foot of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains) was a real winner.  The most beautiful surroundings, a great lineup of musicians and a friendly little town all made for a great four days. Photographing bluegrass musicians has not always been very rewarding for me, but there was one band, the Hillbenders, that put on a great show with mega-enthusiasm and I had fun shooting them in black and white.

The view from the festival tent was always amazing
