Dream Lake Reflection

Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado

This was an extremely rare, warm day in early September when the usual winds swooping down from the 13,000+ continental divide peaks of Hallet and Flat Top Mountain in Rocky Mountain Nationa Park were blessedly calm. I had hiked up to Dream Lake with my 4x5 camera, just out for a casual hike and not really expecting or anticipating the extraordinary calm conditions I found at the lakeshore. Stunned, I turned immediately and raced back down the one mile trail to my car, swapped out my lightweight 4x5 kit for my 8x10 and raced back up the trail hoping against hope that conditions would be as I left them. Fortunately, they were. Back at Dream Lake, now gasping for breath, I excitedly scanned the lake for the best location to set up my tripod. I usually like to photograph at the east end because there are some interesting logs and rocks to compose as foreground elements, but given the reflections in the calm lake surface, I decided to hike around the north side to a little peninsula to get a more open view of the lake. Not knowing when or if the wind would pick up, I set up and dialed in my composition and focus as quickly as possible, only breathing a deep sigh of relief after I had completed my 1/10th second exposure. I have made the trek up to Dream Lake on snowshoes in freezing, windy conditions, in near darkness of pre-sunrise, during the middle of summer, and in early fall. This experience of calm conditions and a near perfect reflection of the mountains is one of my favorite photographs from all my visits. Mother Nature smiled. Dream Lake, perfected.
