Colorado is a land of tall mountain peaks, immense canyons, and vast, rolling plains. Often lost in these enormous settings are the smaller details that make up the landscape. In Colorado Wild, renowned nature photographer Grant Collier shows that these intimate scenes are no less beautiful than the larger ones. He uncovers the amazing beauty that lies within such overlooked objects as dew drops on a leaf, bark on a tree, or thorns on a rosebush. In doing so, Collier transports you to an extraordinary and sometimes alien world of nature on a miniature scale.

He also produces a yearly wall calendar and his images have been displayed in galleries throughout Colorado.

Review:

In general, 'intimate scenes' are what you find here...Some of these pictures, all reproduced on coated paper to National Geographic standards, look more like abstract art than scenes from nature...Now (because I enjoyed Collier's images of the smaller world, of leaves and flowers and ice and sand), I find myself looking around my feet and focusing on the beauty of the tiny little things I used to ignore. --Ed Quillen, Colorado Central Magazine

Colorado Wild tends to focus on the micro - swirling and patchy bark patterns in Rocky Mountain National Park, river rocks gleaming underwater in the Elk Mountains, contorted aspen on Owl Creek Pass. Collier includes a few panoramas, but he invites others to look down, as well as up and out to find beauty. --Denver Post
