This image captures a small patch of Tules just off the shore at Gallatin Beach on Eagle Lake on a calm frosty morning. I was struck by the subtle fog in the background and the wonderful early morning tones as the blue hour began to give way to the golden hour. I felt very fortunate also that I got there just a few minutes before boat traffic from the morning's trout anglers disturbed the dead calm water with its wonderful reflections (although I did opt for a 30 second exposure just to smooth out the very small ripples the local waterfowl were making)
