I think Spring is just around the corner. The warmth is starting to come through, but there is still a hint of chill in the air. I’m definitely ready for the warm weather and for the foliage to start blooming.
The road to Mt. Evans in closed this time of year. There is just too much snow and the road has yet to be plowed. This image was from a warm summer day, but early in the morning up above 14,000 ft. it can still be rather frigid. I was up capturing the sunrise this morning and unfortunately there was a little too much cloud cover, but as I ventured around the mountain top in the blowing cold wind, the sun finally started to come up above the cloud cover. I loaded down the tripod with the weight of my camera bag and some rocks and was able to keep it steady enough to capture this image of the sun’s rays piercing through the clouds. The valley floor was still fairly dark except for the patches of snow along the ground.
