Mount Sneffels Matt Nuñez

Meet the photographer who took the image for Colorado’s new driver license

Colorado’s driver licenses – yes, they’re now officially called driver licenses – not driver’s – have a new look: The craggy outline of a mountain against a sunset-filled sky and in the foreground, a forest and hills. The image is based on a photo of Mount Sneffels on the Western Slope. The photographer is Matt Nuñez, of Lone Tree. The public chose his picture as part of a contest.
