Today’s Photo of the Day is “Sniktau Wind Lines” by Jeremy Hansen. Location: Loveland Pass in Colorado.
“The way the wind howls along portions of this trail will keep the majority away, but I find it very exhilarating to be surrounded by high alpine views of the glorious Rocky Mountains when the light is putting on a show,” says Hansen. “I’ve done this hike numerous times for sunrise, but this was taken at sunset with the wind blasting me as I made a human barrier to try and reduce the wind shaking my camera and tripod during exposures. Having views like this is motivation to be hiking up at pre-dawn hours or hiking down under stars and moonlight.”
