Sentinel in Sight
Michael C Rael
Said to be the largest “free-standing” mountain (not part of any mountain chain) in the continental United States, San Antonio Mountain rises dramatically near the Colorado/New Mexico border. Residents of the vast San Luis Valley in Colorado have exceptional views of San Antonio Mountain, and photographer Michael C. Rael documents the varied ways in which San Antonio Mountain can be seen. Presented over the course of four seasons, Rael’s photographs all have the mountain in the frame, not always as the main subject, but always as the overarching theme.
