The story behind the image:

Deana & John went to Aspen with the self-assignment of making the first in a set of four seasonal Maroon Bells images that were worthy of very large format printing on precision mediums such as steel or acrylic.  A long day of 4-wheeling, fording a stream, and a quick skate across the glacier found us above 10,000 feet in the bowl valley formed by Independence Pass, many miles past the campgrounds and day trippers. We had grand plans for cooking over an open fire before making fabulous Milky Way images, but a steady 25-degree wind ripping through the valley froze that plan solid. Neither of us slept, despite the 5-star accommodations in the back of a Jeep that's full of photo gear, so by 4am there was no point sitting around. Another hour of 4x4 to get back out, some hot dogs and cold coffee from the only gas station open at this ridiculous hour, and we found ourselves completely alone at the Maroon Bells with perfect weather conditions. It was a cold, windless morning, which is needed for the reflection in the lake, with crystal clear weather on top of the fourteen-thousand foot peaks to capture their deep reddish maroon color, which is because they were formed from petrified metamorphic sedimentary mudstone, rather than granite and limestone like most of the Rocky Mountains.
