Mirror - Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado

Sprague Lake, Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado

What a difference a day makes. My first morning in Rocky Mountain National Park, I headed out to Sprague Lake to shoot at sunrise. The weather was overcast and rainy and the results showed it. I ended up with maybe a couple of good shots, but nothing to write home about. This was the second time that I have been to the lake and was shut out (the first time was in 2008). I was determined to get some nice shots at the lake and figured that the third time would be the charm. The next morning I headed back, and this is what greeted me. The light was great, the lake smooth as glass, and the only thing missing were some clouds in the sky. After the previous morning, I could live with that.
