Garden of the Gods at Sunrise

Close to my office is a city park called Garden of the Gods, where massive sandstone formations rise out of the ground at the foot of Pikes Peak. I stopped by an overlook this morning before work after a fresh snow and took these pictures. The first is before sunrise, an 8-second exposure to capture the pre-dawn hues. The second was shortly after the sun had risen, exposing the natural colors of the rock. In the background, there's snow blowing off Pikes Peak in the winds, blurring the contours of the mountain. This is one of the must-see sights for anybody who visits Colorado Springs, preferably in the early morning when the light is best and the skies are usually clear.
