This is a photo of the first snowfall at Maroon Bells at sunset. This is a very peaceful location. I hope this photo brings you peace too!

While huddled in my tent during a fierce Colorado snowstorm, I was hoping that there would be a break by the next morning. All of a sudden the storm broke and the sky began to clear. I rushed to the edge of Maroon Lake just as the clouds began to pick up color from the setting sun.

The Maroon Bells are one of the most highly photographed locations in Colorado and you can see why!
