The twisted arms of an ancient juniper frame the red rocks of Garden of the Gods as Pikes Peak glows purple with the first light of daybreak.
Details: on clear mornings, the red-shifted light of the sun’s first rays turns the top of Pikes Peak pink and purple for a few minutes which adds to the colorful display of red rock and green trees in the Garden of the Gods. the famous “Kissing Camels” can be seen clearly atop the formation on the right. This photo is a single exposure taken by a wide-angle lens on a late-May morning.
