River of Gold

Rocky Mountain National Park

I had on several occasions attempted to hike up before first light to dream lake for some sunrise photos, but was blocked by a solid sheet of ice just past Nymph Lake.  So on this particular warmer evening, my oldest son and I made the trek up for a sunset not knowing what to expect.  Dream lake is not normally a very good sunset spot this time of the year, as you are shooting almost directly into the sun.  So, once we arrived and found the lake to be completely frozen over, I knew that I could focus my attention on doing some abstract work.
