As I prepare to head out to Colorado on Wednesday I thought it appropriate to post a photo I took 4 years ago on my first visit to Rocky Mountain National Park.
"Dawn" - Colorado

Photographed in 2008, this is a 5-photo stitched image photographed on my Canon 5DmkII and 24-70mm lens, photographed well before the sun was visible.
I saw this location a day earlier while hiking out to photograph Dream Lake. The sky was too bright and not as dramatic but I liked the scene and decided to return the next day when the light was right. I returned well before first light and had ample time and great light for this striking silhouette.
