Long's Peak is a landmark northwest of Denver in Rocky Mountain National Park. Long's Peak is one of the three big 14ers (14,000 feet elevation) visible from the Denver area, the other two being Mount Evans, and, farther south, Pike's Peak. Every year people with inadequate preparation and experience try to climb this peak, get in trouble (or worse), and have to be rescued by the park service.
This painting features heavy impasto painting on the mountain making it appear to leap off the canvas. It dramatically shows the first rays of sun hitting the peak while the lower areas are in complete shadow.
