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 September 30.Monte Trumbull

"There is nothing like watching the sunrise 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 on exhibiting art at HRRMC, call (719) 530-2217.
