Salida, Colorado-An exhibit of nature and landscape photographs by Monte Trumbull of Buena
Vista is on display at Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center through
"There is nothing like watching the sun rise or set on the most beautiful
places Mother Nature has to offer," Trumbull said. He strives to
create images that allow the viewer to feel as if they were there to share
the moment with him.
Trumbull's career in photography began in 2006 when he and his wife,
Tammy, relocated to Colorado from Iowa. He had worked in the technology
field for 28 years, and they decided to make the move so that he could
pursue his love of nature and photography.
Growing up, Trumbull spent most of his time outside, rarely without a fly
rod in hand. He realized that his love for fishing was more about the
connection with nature and started to carry his camera so that he could
capture and share the beauty surrounding him.
Trumbull is a self-proclaimed perfectionist who prefers to have complete
control from the moment the shutter is pressed to the final printed image.
He spends hours deciding where to shoot and finding the best angle, then
processes the files on his computer to "convey the true feeling and
atmosphere of the moment of capture." Trumbull also prints his own
images, cuts his mattes and even builds his frames.
All works in the hospital exhibit are for sale, and 25 percent of the proceeds
are donated to the HRRMC Foundation.
HRRMC is hosting four art exhibits this year, as part of its mission to
create a healing environment. The hospital displays the work of regional
artists, with an emphasis on the Arkansas Valley. For more information
