Dan took this spectacular image on the descent from Giant of the Valley in the Adirondacks on the trail at the beginning of sunset. Rather than go for the usual wide-open vista of the snowy landscape, Dan chose to concentrate on a small part of the scene instead, and it really works.
The sunset colors are amazing, and the framing of the snow-covered trees provides great contrast. Dan says he prefers to go there in winter, as he thinks it’s much prettier, and it isn’t as crowded as it is in fall, when lots of people go to see the foliage turning color.
The hike to the summit was a long and arduous one, says Dan, but I think it was well worth it to catch an image like this.
