Fall Morning at the Maroon Bells

This image depicts the Maroon Bells mountain peaks during Colorado’s autumn peak colors. I wasn’t greeted with clouds that morning for sunrise so I opted to wait around the area to see if things would change. Sure enough, the clouds began to build up and the wind calmed down. The result was a dramatic view of the peaks with a mirror reflection in the lake and the aspens blazing their trademark yellow.
