Couple at Sunrise

A couple looks out to the sun coming over a sea of clouds covering the Colorado Springs area from the Pikes Peak Summit. I did not take this picture – it was taken by the Manitou and Pikes Peak Cog Railway’s webcam and was edited by me.

Mountain Goat Morning

Rays of light shining through the clouds as seen from the Pikes Peak Highway
Mountain Goats (?) looking for food just outside of the Pikes Peak Summit House early in the morning before the summit fills with visitors from the Pikes Peak Highway and the Manitou and Pikes Peak Cog Railway.

 

The View From Above the Clouds

I did a couple versions of this photo where the black and white feel is slightly different, and I couldn’t decide which one I liked the most, so here’s my three favorite versions, in no particular order.

Sunrise at the Tollgate

Typically I don’t park my car at the Pikes Peak Highway tollgate, but this day was an exception, and I’m glad it was, with the sun rising over a thin layer of clouds hiding below the mountains.
