By painting a night scene, Bierstadt emphasized the affects of snow on the distinctive shape of Long's Peak. This study resulted from Bierstadt's two-week sketching trip to Estes Park, Colorado. Between December 23, 1876 and January 9, 1877, the artist studied "the park, with all its marvelous natural beauties" and made "sketches of winter scenery and effects in the high mountains."
