Artist's Description

This image of Bear Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park was captured in the fall when winter made a sudden, early appearance. The lake is both a trailhead and a destination in the park, is easily accessible, and never fails to disappoint from the north side with its stunning views of Storm Peak, Longs Peak (partially hidden in the clouds), the lyrically–named “Keyboard of the Winds,” Pagoda Peak, and Chief’s Head Peak, from left to right. (The view is depicted in countless photographs, paintings, and even the Colorado Quarter). One can even make out the twin summits of Mount Lady Washington on the far left (east) of Longs Peak. There is a nature trail that encircles the lake, allowing for unlimited compositions for artists, photographers, philosophers, and dreamers.

I love going up there, as I did that morning immediately after an overnight snowfall, to bear witness to nature’s splendor. When it snows, I always wish for the wind to return – as it always does in the high country – only after I capture a few images. None, of course, are ever truly worthy of the moment. For on that cold September morning, it seemed every blessed snowflake that fell lay undisturbed before me in the perfect stillness and quiet.

The photo was made using a Canon EOS-1V body, EF 50mm f/2.5 compact macro lens, and Velvia 50 film.
