I attempted to take a very similar picture from that spot, but it didn't turn out nearly as well. Well done!

Thanks for the comment! It's all just lucky timing. I had been there a couple times before and wasn't as successful either.

This is one of the most dramatic flower shots I've seen on this site! Really nice effect!

Thanks for the compliment! We really just had good timing. Due to possible bad weather and a long route on tap for that day, we decided not to spend too much time taking photos on the ascent. That was my "2 second photo" from the pass -- just happened to work out well.

textured photo and image from a dream. Just the right conditions, with the sun partly obscured by clouds? Nice shot, I really like the feel of this photo! Take care.

Thanks for the kind feedback. It was a somewhat cloudy day at sunrise when that photo was taken. We still had ~12 miles to go that day and were worried about the notorious Colorado storms firing up early.
