Colorado Vista - Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado

Moraine Road, Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado

I spent a few days exploring Rocky Mountain National Park on my own this past September. My previous visits were drive-throughs on vacation and not for photography. The weather was a bit hit and miss, but this is one terrific place. The park has a great mix of mountains, valleys, streams and wildlife. I took this shot on a windy afternoon. I was driving down Moraine Road and I noticed this scene in my rear view mirror. On my way back, I stopped and hiked to this point of the steam. Even thought the light wasn't great, the clouds and blue sky gave some nice interest (at least to my eyes) to the scene.
