In the spring of 2009 I made by way to Rocky Mountain National Park to photograph along Trail Ridge Road. The road was still in the process of being cleared for the season and scheduled to open in less than a week. After photographing up the road a couple of miles I made my way back to my car. Noticing the road leading towards Longs Peak I put down my tripod and captured the image. With the long exposure of thirty seconds it also caught the city lights of Boulder and Denver lighting up the clouds in the distance.
