From Denver follow highway 36 through Boulder to Lyons. Turn right at Lyons on highway 34 to Estes Park Colorado.
The shot was taken in three images with a Nikon D700 and a 28-300 zoom @ about 250 mm.
The best way to spend New Years day is taking pictures in Rocky Mt Nt. park. Sun rise just me and a couple of dye hard photographers enjoying the early morning peace.
