Maroon CreekWe arrived dutifully before sunrise at Maroon Lake to catch the first light on Pyramid Peak. We were there with literally 200 other photographers! The lake was rough and I could not find a spot I liked without other photographers in the shot. We took a nap in the Jeep, then I hiked up Maroon Creek to get this shot. The clouds came in really fast this day and it was raining an hour later.
Crystal Mill at SunsetTaken the same day as the Maroon Bells image. When we got to the Crystal Mill, lots of photographers were already leaving. A guy with a 4x5 was set up in this spot. Unbelievably, he left just before the sunset lit the clouds and I got the shot he abandoned! The clouds also put a nice warm glow on the rocks below the mill. I did a quick stack of two exposures and I need to repair the ridgeline.
