This mystic and colorful fall sunrise was taken during the peak of the fall color season. After 2 days of moisture, we were hoping for a break in the weather to capture the snow capped peaks for a morning sunrise. We drove through the town of Telluride well before daylight only to be completely socked in with clouds, but little did we know that we would break through the cloud layer as we began the 4-wheel drive up Black Bear Pass. After a hike out to the famous Via Feratta above the valley, we were wowed by the ebb and flow of the cloud inversion below us. At times, it would sway up the canyon and completely engulf us, and then it would slip back down and rise up the other side of the canyon, truly a magical event to witness as the sunrise glow revealed itself to the west.
This image uses 6 vertical images stitched together to create this wonderful Telluride panorama.
