Colorado Black and White Images - Setting Moon on the Trail to Mount Columbia

My friend and I hit the trail early - around 4:00am - on our hike up one of Colorado's 14ers, Mount Columbia. We wanted to reach the summit early and avoid any early afternoon storms. As we neared the edge of treeline, fog shouded the distant mountains but the setting moon glowed in the distance. I stopped to capture this Colorado landscape - only a brief moment in a long journey - but one where this image will linger in my mind.
