Jones Peak from Cottonwood Pass Summit

Last September, I took off for an overnight excursion to the Collegiate Peaks Wilderness in hopes of capturing some beautiful Colorado autumn images. While the aspens trees were just past peak, I was able to get some great nighttime shots and sunrise shots around the summit area of Cottonwood Pass, such as this one of the relatively nondescript Jones Peak. A “thirteener” by measure. This was taken about an hour after sunrise. I love the earthtones in this image as this area of high altitude tundra begins is journey into winter. I look forward to returning to this area during the other seasons in the future to capture this area’s seasonal costumes.
