Carbondale, CO

 
 

Mt Sopris towers over the town of Carbondale and provides several nice photographic opportunities (in the right conditions and locations). This rounded top mountain stands almost 13,000 ft. and is surrounded by a nice aspen grove and colorful underbrush.

I have scouted many areas around Mt Sopris to locate the best composition and found one of the best is simply off the highway to Aspen (CO82). In the fall, when trees and underbrush come alive and the coming winter can dump a nice dusting of snow on the top. Under the right conditions, this location can be breathtaking.
