I have been wanting to capture the mountains in their full morning glory for quite awhile, but my timing has either been off when I go into the mountains or I am too far away to do them justice. I went skiing last weekend and happened to arrive at the Eastern edge of the mountain parks at just the right time.
I pulled over and quickly took these pictures. I wanted a few more with a different perspective and so I was changing lenses when it was suddenly all over as if someone had flipped a switch.
The vistas were beautiful in the afternoon too, so I stopped a couple times on the way home as well.
