Dive into the stories behind eye-catching photos 27.4.2014 Steamboat Pilot
Only a few lucky people get to sit near John F. Russell in the newsroom and hear firsthand how he got that shot of moose licking salt off an animal control vehicle, or about how he’s captured thousands of other moments of life in the Yampa Valley. The same goes for Joel Reichenberger, who recently came back from Russia with a vast portfolio of stellar photos from the Olympics in Sochi. And who doesn’t want to talk to Matt Stensland about how he got that photo of a tranquilized black bear tumbling from a tree near Soda Creek Elementary School? Sometimes, the stories behind photos are as interesting as the images themselves. Here is a collection of stories behind some of our favorite images we’ve taken in recent months.

Property owners, firefighters take steps to battle blazes before they start 25.4.2014 Steamboat Pilot
Don Read, a caretaker for a private home located on Lynx pass, has spent the past two years fighting a fire that has no flames, creates no heat. The former Hot Shot Firefighter is hoping that this fire will never be sparked, will never be whipped by the wind, and will never destroy homes. If someday this fire becomes a reality, however; Don is confident the steps he took to prevent it, will make it easier to fight the fire and protect the home and property he is responsible for. “It’s only seven acres,” Don said. “But it’s a great example of what can happen when private land owners and the forest service work together.” Clearing the land, and creating a safe access for the residents and firefighters has been the goal of Don and the homeowners the past two years. It became clear that something needed to be done in the summer of 2012 when high winds knocked down a power line on the land owned by the U.S. Forest Service. The power line ignited a fire, which ran up the hill away from the road fueled by ...
