You can see 3 different kinds of geography here: plains with farmland (5200' elevation), foothills with mixed forests (6000'- 10000') and the rocky treeless slopes of the Rockies (over 11,000'). This contrast will be more dramatic in April and May. Look for another photo then.
Nikon D300 with 70-300mm lens at f7.1 1/1600s ISO 400. Photoshop was used to reduce the extreme contrast range between the fields and snowy mountains.
