Near Aspen, CO
The Maroon Bells are most likely the most photographed place in Colorado, and to many landscape photographers it is the ultimate spot; the holy grail - where you can get that “hang it on the wall” picture of your dreams.
And not only is it a great spot to photograph, it is a great place to experience nature at its very best: standing on the banks of Maroon Lake on a brisk October morning with a perfect mirror reflection of the snow covered Maroon Peaks glowing with the first light. All this with the perfectly carved valley and the golden Aspens lining the ridge side is simply breathtaking. Few places in Colorado surpass the iconic scene.
