Photographer's Note

distant peaks of the Elk Mountains taken from the summit of McClure Pass in central Colorado

McClure Pass is a high mountain pass (not high by Colorado standards though) at just over 8000 feet in elevation, it traverses the western edge of the Elk Mountains which is home of the renowned ski resort of Aspen. As a matter of fact McClure Pass is the highway through Carbondale, a highway that splits off of the main one that leads to Aspen. I took this pass to get to Kebler Pass (photo shown from there on previous post), This was my first time going over this pass, I wish I had more time in this area, but since I only had 1 day to go through this region and into Crested Butte, I was running all day. I found a great campsite amongst the Aspens just on the other side of McClure Pass from where this photo was taken. I will be looking forward to camping there once the winter lifts it's grip.
Treasure Mountain at 13,528 feet (4123 meters) is the prominent peak to the left.

Shot with my Canon 24-105mm F4L at 105mm and at F9 with a shutter speed of 1/160 second, and an ISO of 50 on my Canon 5D MkII

F9 is the sweet spot for the Canon EF 25-105 and the ISO 50 so far I have found to be the cleanest for the 5D MKII
