f/4.0, 1/250, ISO 100. Taken early morning at Maroon Bells, near Aspen, Colorado of this artist painting the famous Maroon Bells. The left side of the Bells was then shadowed, so I copy, pasted, & blended the right side to show colors. Cloned out misc people in the image, used hue & saturation, & the buzz filter.
