Joe Jackson-Morrison-1986

Anyone who has ever been to the Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, CO will tell you that it is one of the world's best concert venues. The location is amazing--in Red Rocks park, with a great view of the Denver skyline. And the acoustics are unlike any place you have ever been. I'd always wanted to take a photo that captured the performer, but also captured Red Rocks. I liked to experiment with multiple exposure images, but most of the time they didn't turn out. This was an exception. The show took place right in the middle of summer, and there was sill daylight when Joe Jackson came on stage. I took a picture of him, turned quickly and lined things up so you could see the rock formation and the crowd. This time, it worked. Better than I could have ever hoped for. A couple of years back I actually had a person who was in the front row order a print from me, as he could see himself in the picture.
