I was on vacation earlier this summer in Estes Park, which is a great place to hike! The tallest peak in Rocky Mountain National Park is Longs Peak at over 14,000 feet. You can see it here, shrouded in clouds.
I actually climbed Longs Peak in the summer of 2009. It was quite the adventure! On that same trip, was when I started taking HDR photos.
I was feeling rather melancholic as I took this photo–which I think comes through in the frame.
I’ll be visiting Colorado soon, it is one of my favorite places to take photos, and where I got started with some of my first HDR shots! Expect to see some montagnias here in the near future!
Plus five points to the person who can identify where this was taken (it is in Illinois, I’m looking for a specific location).
