Gore Range in Summit County, Colorado: This image was shot on the night of the Lyrid Meteor Shower from Mayflower Gulch of the Ten Mile Range. I was looking for a scene to compose when I found this but I felt that this view was too far from the “origin” point of the Meteor shower. I figured that I would come back and work this shot over at another date but I was surprised when I got home to what I had in a single frame. The cloud is reflecting light from Copper Mountain Village near I-70.
Lightroom: Although there was some light reflecting on the peaks from the Climax Molybdenum Mine, I used the adjustment brush in Lightroom to warm the peaks slightly.
