Maroon Bells Summer Closeup

Maroon Bells Summer Closeup

The Maroon Bells are touted as the most photographed spot in Colorado. I'm not sure this is correct, but they are absolutely beautiful. Located a mere half hour from Aspen, Colorado, the Maroon Bells loom over appropriately named Maroon Lake, and are a sight to behold, especially at sunrise. I got lucky with the weather when I was here in July, 2017. I took this photo at sunrise, facing west. The skies above the Maroon Bells are filled with beautiful, threatening-looking clouds, but behind me, there was enough of an opening in the cloud cover to allow for the horizontal rays of light from the early-morning sunrise to illuminate the 14,000+ foot peaks of the Maroon Bells. Most shots of the Maroon Bells include a lake in the foreground, and while I also have this version of these majestic mountains, I thought a closeup of the mountains themselves, without the added distraction of adjacent peaks or a foreground lake might create some additional interest.

Available in the following sizes (Rectangle B): 12x8, 18x12, 24x16, 30x20, 36x24, 45x30, 60x40, 72x48.
