Belt of Venus over Chair Mountain (2018)

Gunnison National Forest, Colorado

SOLD OUT. One of my favorite scenes in all of Colorado happens to be more or less in the middle of nowhere. Very few people have ventured to this location west of Chair Mountain and McClure Pass. From here, you can see the Maroon Bells (center), Snowmass Mountain, and Capitol Peak in the distance. All made magically delicious from the changing autumn colors. The graduated blue, purple, and pink in the sky is affectionately known as "The Belt of Venus."
