Greetings Snake and Mario, Thanks for visiting the Maroon Bells and commenting. I was very fortunate to have such a wonderful morning there. The air was perfectly still and the only ripples were from the fish jumping. It was nice to have some interesting clouds in the sky too. Thanks again.

Long time no pic, Richard. But your comeback is a roarer! Congrats.

Richard Ryer on June 4, 2009

Good Morning Poly, Sorry for the absence. Had the camera, but no time. When I did go out the weather was lousy. I got very lucky with this morning at the Bells. It was fun to get back out. Thanks for visiting. Hopefully it will be a good summer.

Greetings Kovi, Thanks for the visit and kind words. The lake and mountains make it easy to get a good shot. It is such fun to be able to go to such places. I am glad you like the scenery.

Greetings Tomas, Thanks so much for visiting and making such a kind comment. I am glad you like the unique beauty of the Maroon Bells. It is not often such a place of beauty is so accessible. During the summer you cannot drive to the location, you have to take a shuttle bus. When we were there last weekend, there were only five other people around us. It was very nice. Thanks again.

Certainly a stunner, Rich.

Truly a magnificent landscape, richly painted, beautifully balanced. Your competence as a photographer and sportsman are both revealed. What delight filled you on arrival! And what satisfaction for having made the effort! But you have to keep making visits for summer, FALL and winter.

Warm regards,
