Pikes Peaks dominates Colorado Springs' city skyline and is visible from just about anywhere in the city. This photo depicts the snow capped 14,000 peak in early spring, as seen from Palmer Park, a wonderful area for hiking in the center of town. If you zoom in on the image, you can just make out the summit house, a building at the top of the peak where they serve homemade donuts and coffee to carloads of visitors who drive Pikes Peak highway to the summit, and to the occasional weary hiker who's climbed the mountain. I captured this image with a Canon 6D DSLR camera and a Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM lens.
