Notes

Don't expect solitude at Maroon Lake in the morning. Get there when it's still dark to pick your spot; it was literally shoulder to shoulder for several hundred feet at the lake edge.

Description

After being frustrated for three mornings to capture the first rays of the sun hitting the Maroon Bells, I headed out to continue my trip. It rained all afternoon and as I was about to enter a campground for the night, it knawed at me that I didn't get a good shot of the Bells. So I drove over 100 miles back to Maroon Lake thinking that the rain would be snow on the peaks and hopefully get snow and the first rays of light. When the morning brightened, there was indeed snow on the peaks but clouds in the east looked to block the sunrise. But for just about one minute, the rays broke through and I got this shot.
