Rocky Mountain National Park – Day Three
Here are a few other ones from this morning.
After heading back for breakfast, I started to feel like a train blindsided me and needed to take the day to rest up. Maybe it was altitude, maybe it was me not eating enough, but after a while I started to feel better. I started researching where to head for later in the day. I had remembered a couple yesterday morning talking about Dream Lake so I looked into it. I saw images of it online that were stunning so I had to check it out. Of course being sunset, the lighting was completely wrong but I went anyways to scout it out so I can head up early tomorrow and see if I can make some magic happen. It was a little over a mile uphill to get to the lake and when you finally get there you are stunned to see this beautiful alpine lake with a massive treeless mountain top across the lake. It is the same mountain you see in my Bear Lake photos. So after seeing what the spot had to offer I took some test shots to check the composition. Nothing special but I did manage to make these two shots of the gnarled trees that lined the edge of the lake.
Hopefully tomorrow I can get some great shots at Dream Lake at sunrise. It will be my last shots at Rocky Mountain National Park. Next stop Grand Junction, Colorado for a night to check out Colorado National Monument then to Moab for Arches and Canyonlands.
