The Deadly Bells by Nate-Zeman The Deadly Bells by Nate-Zeman

Because of the number of lives they have claimed, the Maroon Bells Are often referred to as the deadly bells.

There is a sign at the trailhead. (right near where i took this photo) It's supposed to serve as a last warning to would be climbers about the perils of attempting these peaks.

it reads...

"The Deadly Bells"

The beautiful Maroon Bells ... have claimed many lives in the past few years. They are unbelievably deceptive. The rock is downsloping, rotten, loose, and unstable. It kills without warning. The snowfields are treacherous, poorly consolidated, and no place for a novice climber. The gullies are death traps. Expert climbers who did not know the proper routes have died on these peaks. Don't repeat their mistakes, for only rarely have these mountains given a second chance.

Nice exposure, and love the warm tone. Definitely needs to be a bigger resolution though, especially for a photo of this caliber.

I would say this is my favorite shot of Maroon Bells, ever. Most people just get it with good lighting and the perfect reflection. You've one-upped them, with the incredible atmospheric conditions you've managed to capture, as well.

God damn.

Though beautiful this shot is also eerie. I don't know why. I look at it and I think of sorrow and pain while the colors are vibrant and inviting.

The yellow colors of the trees are so intense, so wonderful...
And the reflection of the landscape makes it artistically.
I could look at this photo for a long time, because it's dreamy to me...
Thanks for the explination too.
I always enjoy you know more about a region.

I dunno why really, but I love how it's all colorful and bright on one side of the river, and the other side is all misty and kinda gloomy...
