Wall of Fame Winner • Carlos Cintron

Maroon Bells, Colorado, USA
Nikon D800, Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8, f/14, 0.6sec, ISO 100

Maroon Bells is the most photographed place in Colorado, USA. Pictures simply don’t do these peaks justice, you really need to be there to enjoy it, so I decided to pay a visit.

I got there by 3am and waited for 4 hours in temperatures under 30 degrees for the perfect light. The place gets really crowded so if you manage to find a perfect spot, it is best to stay there and don't move until you get the picture you like.

It was a pity that the expected clouds didn't show up, but once the light started painting the peaks, all you could hear was the people around you getting excited and the clicks of the camera shutters.

The experience to be there the first two hours, alone in the dark, and two more hours with so many people around you, just to catch one photograph, makes you realize how much you love photography. Some people might say that I'm crazy, but only a photographer will understand another photographer.

At the end of that morning I was feeling pretty proud as I had created an image I was very happy with. The whole experience was really worth it.
