There are numerous scenes from cities and towns, as well as a few pristine wilderness photos that give one hope that Colorado will remain a place where we can continue to find solitude and beauty.

Colorado, 1870-2000
by William Henry Jackson, John Fielder (Photographer). Hardcover.
A coffee table book with historic photos taken by W.H. Jackson and later, John Fielder. Fielder returned to the exact same vantage points whenever he could, to stand in the footsteps of Jackson. He also replicated similar seasons, lighting conditions, and other details as closely as possible. They are presented together to show the changes that have taken place. These are truly stunning works by two masters of their art. This book and all of those in the Colorado Littlebooks series have an honored place on our coffee table.

Colorado Autumn

Known best for its golden aspen leaves in the fall, Colorado is also home to reds, oranges and all the tones in between. John Fielder captures scenes all around the state during this most beautiful season. A friend gave us this book as a gift and we have treasured it ever since.

Rocky Mountain National Park : A 100 Year Perspective
by Enos Abijah Mills(Photographer), et al. Hardcover.
Fielder calls Enos Mills his mentor. Here are photos from both of them, separated by a hundred years. The photos are stunning eye candy, of course. It's also fascinating to read Fielder's diary in the back of the book. He details the adventures and difficulties encountered as he and his "sherpa" friends reached remote places in the park, accessible only by difficult hiking.

Along Colorado's Continental Divide Trail
by John Fielder(Photographer), et al. Hardcover.
This coffee-table book is an exquisite collection of photos from a 740-mile trek along the Continental Divide Trail. As Fielder says, "I practically wore my Thesaurus out looking for adjectival alternatives–but there are limited synonyms of 'beautiful,' 'splendid' and 'awe-inspiring.' (And this in a state that can use up all the scene-based superlatives the language can muster.)"

So all I can say about this volume is that it's superlative!

Colorado's Continental Divide Trail : The Official Guide
by Tom Lorang Jones, John Fielder (Photographer). Paperback.
Rich in history and ecological niches, the Continental Divide marks the division of the two watersheds of North America. 759 miles of the trail are contained in Colorado. This book splits the trail into 43 segments, with descriptions of each hike, maps, access, and side-hikes that branch off of the main trail. Fielder's photos are interspersed, usually in half-page versions.

A Colorado Winter
by John Fielder(Photographer), et al. Hardcover.
Oh, what exquisite photos! Winter in Colorado means muted sunrises and sunsets, and Fielder captures their pastel tones so well. This book reminds me just exactly why I love snow. Its photogenic qualities are unsurpassed.

Colorado Waterfalls (Colorado Littlebooks)
by John Fielder(Photographer). Hardcover.
Fielder has captured waterfalls to make the spirit soar. Some are the world-class waterfalls for which Colorado has become so famous. Others are smaller falls with lesser volumes of water, yet with the mysterious beauty that only flowing water can exhibit. As with all of the Littlebooks, inspirational nature quotes accompany the photos.

Colorado Reflections (Colorado Littlebooks)

Nothing says "John Fielder" more than his trademark photos of reflections. He has gone to the utmost of effort to get to the 35 beautiful places in this book.
