Truly an iconic place and views cape! While the Maroon Bells are arguably the photographed peaks in North America, it's difficult to get a unique image, however, this is one of them! Your HDR treatment is most well done and subtle as well. These peaks are just a few miles from my backdoor and every time I visit, I see something new. Your image is one of those views! Thanks!

Thanks so much George. Just happened to be the right time and place. I came for fall color but it snowed on me instead. being from SoCal I wasn't happy. Once I saw what I captured I guess it was worth it huh?

Behind The Lens

Location
Aspen, Colorado Maroon Bells
Time
7:40 am
Lighting
You get there at sunrise and watch as the light hits the top of the Bells and fills this little valley below them This was taken once that happened.
Equipment
In those days (10/2/09) I used an Canon 50D with a EF17-40MM f/4 L USM lens.
Inspiration
I went there in Oct to photograph the fall color. I was really into the beautiful yellow Aspen trees
Editing
HDR in Photomatic I believe I used 3 exposures that were shot at f/ 7, 1/50, ISO 100 at 0, +2 & -2
In my camera bag
Now I have a Canon 5D Mark III and most of the L lenses that are not prime
Feedback
Get there early. I was lucky because of the snow I didn't have to fight off to many photographers getting in my way. My friend was just there this fall and she said there were so many people and they didn't respect each other and it was hard to get a shot that didn't have anyone in it.
