Anders J. Ipsen was born and raised in Upstate New York but moved to Colorado a few years ago — and we’re so glad he did. Anders spends a lot of time backcountry hiking, biking and splitboarding, which is why many of his photos are landscapes. He does an especially beautiful job at capturing sunsets and sunrises — and the unique cloud formations they illuminate.
