Colorado's Maroon Bells

Maroon Bells Dawn, originally uploaded by Jeff Sullivan.

Over 50 other photographers had lined up along the shoreline, and they were dealing with the windy surface of the lake. I found this calm area and got down in the water and mud to take the wind out of the shot and get a reflection.

I saw the potential for this shot when I scouted the location the night before. Fortunately it required wearing waders, because I was the only one prepared to kneel in the mud when the high wind conditions warranted some unusual shooting positions the next morning.
