shot this image at the end of fall, it was super cold and i had been shooting with a down jacket and down pants, gloves and a winter hat on. the pass tops out at about 12,000 feet. my first few shots didnt turn out so well so i stripped down to a tshirt and long underwear and ditched the gloves and hat to make it look more summery and warm. turned out so much better than the other shots that night. it was absolutely freezing in a tshirt

thanks for the spotlight melissa!

    What a great photographer won't do for an excellent shot! This was well worth the freezing temps. It sure is hot now! Pun intended ;)
