Behind The Lens

Location
Maroon Bells, Aspen, CO
Time
7AM
Lighting
The best time to shoot this area in my opinion is early morning before the sun completely pops over the surrounding mountains or on an overcast day.
Equipment
This photo was taken with a Nikon D7000 and 35mm lens
Inspiration
I live close to the Maroon Bells and fall is my absolute favorite time of the year. Gorgeous mountains and the colors of the aspen trees made this an easy pick for a fun place to take pictures. It is also easily accessible if you go early in the morning.
Editing
Yes, I shoot in RAW and I made minimal adjustments in Lightroom. I feel this photo is true and accurate to the real thing. It really is that beautiful there!
In my camera bag
My Nikon D7000 along with Nikon lenses- 35mm, 12-24mm, 18-200mm along with several Tiffen filters.
Feedback
The Maroon Bells are some of the most photographed mountains in the US. "The early bird gets the worm" holds a lot of truth to this place. This particular morning there were over 100 other people lined up along the lake as I was leaving. Getting there very early, like 5:30AM or earlier is ideal if you want a good spot. Also, patience is required here. The autumn colors and the morning after the first snowfall make for a lot of traffic, so be prepared to share. This place is beautiful! You can really get some jaw dropping photos; knowing your camera, having a tripod and filters are a huge bonus!
