A glowing sunrise coming up over this mountain range near Raton, New Mexico caused Dad to slam on the breaks and scramble to get his camera out in time to take this picture. He knew he had the beginnings of a great Old West photo.
When he got home, Dad located the other “part” of the photo. He’d photographed Red Wolverton’s stagecoach as a silhouette near Tucson, Arizona. He smoothly blended the mountains and the stagecoach to create a new eye-catching piece of Old West art.
