The title pretty much says it all. I’ve been moving images from one hard drive to another and decided to take a break and play around with some of them. The music in the slideshow is copyright Dexter Britain and used under Creative Commons license.
This video won’t be up for very long, so if you want to watch it now is the time. Go to the page here.
Sounds strange to hear ‘marble dump’, doesn’t it? “Why in the world would you ever dump this beautiful stone?” I’ve heard it more than once from folks and I end up explaining about the fractures that occur, imperfections and then the very fractured stone from the face of a new gallery, as is the rock in this video. Some of the first pieces of the new Lincoln Gallery that have been taking the brunt of the weather on the face of the quarry for thousands of years take a tumble.
This is the first time you get to ‘ride along’ while the marble is discarded.
This was shot during the Treasure Mountain Trip 2012. Thanks to Smitty and Crystal River Jeep Tours for getting us up and down the mountain safely. It was a great trip! Maybe Smitty will jump in and give us a ‘peak by peak’ description. What do you say Smitty?
Going through many of the images from the quarry shoot last summer and adding a ‘pan and zoom’ effect. So far it looks like it will work very well.
Well, at least inside the quarry it is the last sunlight for the day even though it’s only lunch time.
The sunlight streaming through the portals truly creates beautifully unique scenes inside the quarry. Calling them one-of-a-kind isn’t even adequate.
I shot this video while on the emergency staircase under portal number three this past summer. The original length was about two minutes. I’ve sped up the footage to run just six seconds so you can see the changing sunlight.

The first ebook on the quarry is ‘The Colorado Yule Marble Quarry’, by Ron Bailey Photography. It is a rather large file at 70mb but is chock full of color photos and video running 137 epages long, including never before seen photos of the new Lincoln Gallery opened up this past June!
You can preview the first 19 pages then you will be prompted to purchase the book if you like what you see. Be the first in town to get a copy! Be the envy of all! Spread the word!
If you prefer a copy of the DVD ‘The Colorado Yule Marble Quarry: Our National Treasure’, you can now order on Amazon.com!
I hope you enjoy the book and DVD as much as I did putting it all together.
