Thanks, just happened to be walking down the trail at the right time of light. :D

I really lucked out that day. Clouds can make an image, and in that case they did. Although Longs isn't too shabby to look at either.

Definitely - those clouds are a trip

Vonmackle,

That is a great reflection shot of those obscure peaks. I've climbed a ton in Colorado and don't think I've ever seen them before... :mrgreen: Don't tell anyone where they are, or it may get really crowded in that area. HA HA!

Thanks, Chinook. The really odd thing is that I was there on Memorial Day just before sunrise, and I was the only person at the lake. That was unexpected. Being woken up in the middle of the night by a critter chewing on my car, however, was not. I knew I should have bought those moth balls.
