Description

Garden of the Gods is my go-to place from which to photograph Pike Peak. This is especially true after a fresh snowfall. In December, 2013 such conditions existed and I arrived at the Garden as the clouds were parting to reveal the Peak newly draped in snow. The red rocks of the Garden always stand out as do the evergreens that dot the landscape. Colorado's clear, dry air was very cold even as the sun was shining brightly on this early afternoon scene.
