Color: Andrew Pusbach

Colorado is well known for its vividly colored wildflowers, lush green valleys, and beautiful mountain ranges. Whenever I visit the Maroon Bells Wilderness Area I am overwhelmed by the experience, between the stunning peaks, the crystal clear mountain lakes, and towering aspen trees.

 Despite their beauty, the Maroon Bells are considered to be two of the most dangerous peaks in the state. They are often referred to as the “Deadly Bells.” They have claimed the lives of many an ambitious climber over the years, however, this does not stop people from reaching their summits.
 The Maroon Bells are some of the most well-known peaks in the state, and as such, are photographed constantly. Due to this, the real challenge when photographing them is walking away with a unique image.

When photographing the Maroon Bells, I prefer to visit them during the summer rather than in the fall because there are fewer photographers. As I watched the morning unfold I began to notice the interesting clouds moving above me creating dynamic shapes and patterns in the sky. The image above was my favorite from the morning.


  1. Andrew I love that photo. Very crisp and the color definantly pops.

  2. Really nice image. I like the reflection in the water and it's very colorful.
