Flowing Colors of Dream Lake by Jacob-Routzahn Flowing Colors of Dream Lake by Jacob-Routzahn
An early hike with friends to Dream Lake rewarded us with a vibrant sunrise over the tail waters that gently flow towards Nymph Lake. Though the weather was brutal and the wind ripping, the warm hues took even the deepest chills away.

I returned to this spot the following weekend only to find the water almost entirely frozen. What luck I had getting possibly the last reflections for 2010.

This shot was a result of the following weekend: :thumb186067607:

really mystical.
I really have the feeling like i've been there. But that can't be, not even a place that looks like it.
It's very weird... and it also calls some sort of emotions.

I really love this.

Well, have you ever been to dream lake in RMNP? If so, you just might have seen it! I'm really happy that it draws out so much emotion. That's what is so cool about photography and am really tickled I get to experience that from a viewer! :D

Ah, it's really funny to see this picture right now because it's summer here. :) Sunrise? Oh, looking at this I thought it was sunset. The light reflected on the water is beautiful, it makes it look like a solid pane of glass.
I enjoy how far back into the picture you can see, and how clearly. I also like the detail of all the stacked wood on the shore. It looks as though you're standing in the water to take this! Brrr!

I hate winter, and this actually makes me miss it. Well done. :)

Well thank you :D I wasn't quite standing in the water. I did however perch myself on a rock, and slipped a few times into the water. So, I did in fact come out with wet feet. But I was happy with the result. I appreciate your kind words and hope you enjoy future works to come :D
