Dream Lake by tourofnature Dream Lake by tourofnature
I had to get a sunrise in at the famous Dream Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park. After a real nice hike in the dark I arrived to the lake and found 3 other photographers. There were clouds low on the horizon so the light wasn't as good as it could have been, but even with the delayed sunrise the scene was beautiful and well worth pointing a camera to.

Dream lake in the foreground, with Hallett Peak on the left of the frame.

Canon 5D. 17-40 L. 2HS-GND filter.

nice - the classic/iconic RMNP shot - here's my take on it, [link] - i was able to get some sweeeet alpin-glow.......
i usually go about 8 x's a year. usually late summer-early fall....i really like the rocks in the foreground which aren't there in the spring....
plus there use to be a bunch of dry kie (driftwood ?) in the foreground - and IMO was just a bunch of clutter and distraction, but somehow it mysteriously disappeared...........except for this one long - but it makes for a great leading line, plus it was to heavy to move (LOL)

I guess in the spring the lake would be higher covering up the rocks. All the driftwood is still there closer to where the lake exits to the stream. I hiked around to the left and hopped on a couple of rocks to isolate this one log. As much as I wanted to I didn't clear out all that driftwood myself. :D Awesome shot of the lake too, love the reflection!
