Description

Sometimes the Colorado sky is not the typical deep blue that appears in most of the state's photographs. But even on overcast and rainy days the scenery can be breathtaking. And, when clouds are everywhere, the time of day and the position of the sun are less of a factor. That was the case on this late September day when I captured this image of Sprague Lake in RMNP. One of the advantages of "bad weather" is fewer visitors in the park!
