Maroon Bells Sunrise



I composed several scenes during my morning at Maroon Bells.  This picture captures the sun as it rises above the mountains behind me and illuminates the peaks.  Due to the extreme contrast of the scene, I used exposure bracketing to capture the full dynamic range.  I combined three of my five exposures in Photoshop, a process which took approximately two hours.

Maroon Bells is definitely worth waking early for, if you are near Aspen.  The best spots on the lake are taken early, when it is still pitch-black.  You can see several late-comers in the far-right of this picture gathered at the far extreme of the lake.

Captured on September 26, 2016 using a Canon EOS 5DS and Canon EF 16-35mm F/4L IS.
