Dream Lake and Hallett Peak at sunrise, Rocky Mountain National Park. A one mile hike in the dark gets you here just before sunrise.

Somehow (and it’s easy to see why) this outdoes Cairn Gorms National Park! Nicely done and no doubt worth the trek.
Thank you very much! The best time of year to get this image (IMO) is Labor Day weekend. The suns rays form a perfect V on the peak. Hiking in the dark is weird, wondering if there’s a bear or mountain lion around…
amazing photograph! what a beautiful, serene place. i like the clouds peeking over the mountaintop. nicely done!
beautiful! the reflection is perfect.
Beautiful! Stunning! Impressive! You captured this lake perfectly!
Thank you. I’m hiking up there again this weekend for more captures. I’m hoping to hike up one lake further to Emerald Lake. Emerald Lake sits at the base of Hallett Peak. Going to be fun hiking in the dark again :-)
excellent! this is really well done!
beautiful spot to spend the day..great capture
stunning vista Gary
