I took this shot from the balcony of my living room at Lumiere (an amazing condo hotel), overlooking Mountain Village, the resort community that’s connected to Telluride by the local gondola. The sun had just set but the mountainside was still illuminated by 14 inches of fresh snow. I love the amber glow of the lights, and the way it reflects on the sidewalk and snow. Even way off in the distance, you can see the faint amber glow of porch lights from other houses and cabins. God, I love Telluride. It’s one of the most beautiful places on earth.
