Go up to Summit County and get some winter scenics.

My plan was to drive up the Dillon area and take a drive around the reservoir. There was some new snow, not a lot, but enough to help any photo.  After capturing a number of images, I found myself on Loveland Pass, right near A-Basin, at sunset. The sky was a rich blue, as the last of the sun made the mountain tops glow. To get a correct exposure, I zoomed into the bright spot, took a reading, than with out changing anything, created my image.  This allowed the warm glow on the peaks, to come through in my photo.
