Warning, this is an 'R' rated photograph! Fritz White's monument 'Winning the Iron Shirt' is located along Highway 287 in Loveland, Colorado. For years, while driving by, I tried to envision a way to photograph it an depict its strength. As the figure faces north, I thought about waiting until near the summer solstice to make the photograph. But, never having been known for my patience, I decided not to wait and the image was made on April 22, 2012 shortly after dawn.
Several people have asked me if the lightning was real. My response has always been something to the effect that if you like the image, it doesn't really matter. However, I have always prided myself as being smart enough to come in out of the rain!
The original photograph was made on a Canon t3i camera.
