Notes

A slightly different image than I had anticipated but satisfying. Weather good and wind, calm.

Description

The hike to this location is about 30 minutes and I started about an hour before sunrise, hoping for predawn color on an interesting cloudscape. Clear weather following the summer monsoons took away the clouds, but the scene was striking for its contrasts. Sunlight washing the distant sheer rock face made the silhouetted trees around the small alpine tarn really stand out, and the reflection of both light and dark subject was beautiful.
