Fiery vision

This is Notchtop in Rocky Mountain National Park in the clouds about an hour after sunrise.

Contrasts. Buy a print.

Same image on flickr. Google+ post.

As people who have been on this trail in winter know, the wind can get very strong here. This was indeed one of those moments. From the image you would hardly know I took this image in gale-force winds and I was quite cold and actually shivering, but couldn't let this scene pass by without taking it to the plate.

It turns out I took this image in the exact same spot I shot another image at sunset a few weeks earlier. I posted it before, but I'll repeat it here so you can compare.

Fire over Notchtop

What a difference a few weeks makes!
