Monday Early. Estes Park PLEIN AIR 2008
It just doesn't get much better than this. My photography does not do it justice but the pre-dawn glow (alpenglow) in the peaks is truly amazing. The sun is still about 15 minutes from rising but the mountains get it's pre-dawn blast. Painter, Rick Frisbie, from Kansas and myself were up in the high country about 5:50 am, to see the moon set over a perfect image of the mountains on Sprague lake; another -"This is why I live in Colorado moment."
