Landscape and Panoramic Photography

Maroon Bell Shadows

The East Portal is a less-traveled trail in the Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness area.  Although the trail lacks the breathtaking views of the Maroon Peaks over Crater Lake, it does allow for a longer and more interesting walk.  Wild anise, aspen, and wildflowers line the trail.  The views of the South side of Pyramid Peak are spectacular.  I took this panorama from the East Maroon trail just as storm clouds were starting to roll in and cast shadows over the peaks.  After this series of shots I was caught in a lightning and hail storm.
