Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado, USA
I came across this scene two days before I captured it here. At that time, the vista was plagued with fog, mist, and snow, and wind caused the water to have uneven ripples in all directions. I hung out at this spot for a while envisioning what I wanted. I visualized the potential of sunrise forcing a glow on the foreground against the dark shadows of the background. I made the plan to come back, which I did, and I am glad I did!
