Departing Storm - Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado

I am always beating the drum about revisiting locations when the weather doesn't cooperate, even if there are years between visits. I first stood at Sprague Lake with family and friends during a very cold and very windy day. Even though the lake is far from any real oceans, I swear that there were waves on the water surface. Okay, maybe I exaggerate a bit but not by much. The next time I stood on the lake's shore, there was a steady rain that made photography impossible. So the third time is a charm? I'll let you be the judge of that. I shot this photo one September morning, and, although it rained during the night, I was blessed with great light and clearing skies as the morning sun lit up the landscape on the opposite shore.
