18 APRIL: ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK

A great sunset was followed the next morning by a great sunrise.  The day started in Horseshoe Meadow – a herd of elk grazed, Canadian Geese honked, and turkeys gobbled.  I’m always looking for bodies of water – streams, ponds, lakes, even puddles – to capture reflections.  In Horseshoe Meadow are a series of ponds called Sheep Lakes.  This morning I was able to capture color on clouds to the east reflected in one lake and then capture the alpenglow on the mountains to the west captured in another.
