Gorgeous. I was there a week or so earlier and it did not look anything like this. Great timing.

I really like the mix of colors, the snow and the light.

Beautiful shot there. Such a range of color. If you feel so inclined, should post a bigger version for better appreciation. (thing must be giant if you shot it with your d800)

Fantastic! Love the view, the color, and your composition...this is a wallhanger for sure.

I have seen Mt. Sneffels from the Dallas Divide, but never knew how to get down to where you took this shot. Did you go in on Hwy 7 out of Ridgway? If so, will a 2-wheel drive regular vehicle get you to some closer views similar to your image?

Great image!

Awesome shot! I'm wanting to go back to Colorado, this shot just makes me more impatient about another trip. Hopefully you plan to enlarge and frame this one.

Great colors. I especially like the glow on the mountain tops and in the ground fog.

Well, Jim, You did it again. Beautiful. I am imagining a huge print!!. can you show 100% crop of one or two spots, one close and one far? I presume it was taken with D800?
