[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Sorry in advance if the colors/brightness are off (I'm having issues with my monitor). This is Gilpin Peak (13,694 feet). It sits right next to one of my favorite Colorado peaks, Mount Sneffels (14,150 feet) in the Yankee Boy Basin. This basin is one of the most beautiful places in all of Colorado. On this day the peak looked rather ominous as it had sadly claimed the life of a man who fell while he was climbing with his daughter the week before. The approaching storms painted the sky in a way that added to the feeling. Thanks in advance for your comments.

Wow. Amazing shot.

Composition is great, setting is awesome. Colours a nice and vivid.

Well done I like it. Good landscape


Hi dan,
Great to see one of your photos again. I like the reflection and the straight forward composition. The colors and brightness seems to be still OK. The clarity of the photo is excellent. Just a small concern, it looks a little tilted toward the left.

Hello Dan,
A well framed image!
The scenery is awesome, most impressive is the way we can enjoy the bottom of the lake...
Good light on the snowy part of the mountain makes it really stand out, also in the reflection!

This is an interesting shot, Dan. I agree with the other comments including the need for a slight rotation. I particularly like the underwater rocks in the foreground. It is nice to have interest from front to back. There is some OE in clouds and snow. It often helps to enhance areas of the photo separately.
