A Few Faces of Long’s Peak // 48 Hrs in RMNP

If you’ve been following this blog at all, you’ll know that I love photographing mountains.  And if you’ve been following for a long time, you might know that I can get obsessed with particularly handsome mountain faces.  *Note: See Squaretop

Well, I have a new one.  And it’s a very well-known one: Long’s Peak in Rocky Mountain National Park, Co.

I know i’m probably a little late to the party with Long’s, but I only first saw this imposing peak last summer.  So, it was an opportunity to explore the mountains a bit more when I decided to tack on a quick visit to RMNP this October, after an overnighter in Denver.

And Long’s Peak did not disappoint.

When you only have 2 days in a location, I believe it can be more beneficial to focus on a dominant aspect of that place and explore it from many angles.  It’s tough.  I would  even consider it a discipline.  The temptation for me is always to try to pack it all in and see everything.  But there is benefit to slowing down and studying… and the next time you have the opportunity to spend a little more time in that locale, you will have abetter understanding of the light, and the many faces of the mountains.
