Maroon Bells by juddpatterson Maroon Bells by juddpatterson
This is iconic Colorado photography. Many of the trees were green when I visited, so I went for a vertical composition to focus on the best color. I also thought these foreground rocks were interesting too. They kind of mirror the two main peaks in this impressive range. Despite the fact that you are sometimes tripod to tripod with dozens of other photographers, an image like this helps me to drift back to that beautiful morning standing next to a mirror-calm lake of glass.

The Maroon Bells/Snowmass Wilderness is in central Colorado not too far from Aspen. Colorado Springs has some nice areas too!

looks very similar to your picture... thought it was the same place first. good work, feels a bit calmer than the one i linked to. i think i prefer the other one though, like the "action" there.

Sensor spot, top left in the sky

I love the image, but the colors a slightly too crayola. The blues are too cyan and the yellows are like McDonalds. The composition is strong and the scene is beautiful.

Thanks for the sensor spot detection. Point taken on the cyan, I think I'll tone it down, but the yellows aren't budging a bit. What can I say, I love color. :) Thanks again.

Wow, what a great composition of a shot that's been done so many times before. It's hard to be original at Maroon Bells, but you managed it.

Between this shot and Nate Zeman's pictures, I'm really beginning to fall in love with that spot.

I love your capture of it. The composition, reflection and colors are superb.
