Maroon Bells Sunrise

Sunrise at the Maroon Bells during summer in Colorado

This Week’s Photo – The Morning Bells

Could you believe that I was the only person here to see this in person? I couldn’t either! At the Maroon Bells no less! Last time I was here was for the fall colors and there was at least three dozen other photographers squeezed in between one another. It was just me, my gear and a heck of a view. And even better I had some great clouds that morning which produced some stellar drama and color in the sky. The Maroon Bells during its prime fall colors can’t be beat, but I thought this summer shot provided a slightly different atmosphere than you typically see from the area.

Shot Details:
