I hadn't been to the Maroon Bells in Aspen, Colorado, during the early summer, so I decided to check it out. You can drive into the park if you get through the entrance gate before 7 am or after 4 pm, otherwise you have to take a buss in. The weather was great, with no wind and a nice sky. Once the busses started to arrive, it became crowded with visitors.  Most would stop and take a photo before going on their way. The park is one of the most photographed places in Colorado with a lot of it in the fall.  My "X Shot" is the one everyone wants, with the snow capped Bells reflected in a still lake. When we first got there the wind was blowing but stopped for a while, letting me capture this images.
