Description

OK THINGS TO DO, CHECK THE WEATHER FORCAST. PARTLY SUNNY, BROKEN CLOUD COVER, 4 AM TEMP 5 DEGREES. SO TOMORROW MORNING I SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET A GREAT SUNSRISE ON DREAM LAKE UNDER HALLET PEAK WITH SOME GREAT WHITE SNOW COVER (DONT FORGET THE ND FILTERS). CHECKLIST, FIVE LAYERS OF CLOTHS,HAT,NECK WARMER, GLOVES, HEADLAMP BACKPACK WITH CAMERA GEAR AND TRIPOD, CHECK GOT IT ALL. ONE HOUR DRIVE CHECK. ONE HOUR HIKE -5 CHECK. FINALLY UP HERE AND SET UP IN THE DARK WAITING FOR THE SUNRISE OVER MY BACK AND WAITING FOR THE SUNRISE OVER MY BACK. 6:45 NO SUNRISE OVER MY BACK AND VERY COLD. SNOW STARTING TO FALL AND IT FEELS LIKE IT IS GETTING COLDER. CANT EXPOSE MY FINGERS FOR MORE THAN A FEW SECONDS BEFORE THEY GET COLD. INSTEAD OF PACKING IT UP I THOUGHT THIS WOULD BE THE PERFECT DAY FOR B&W. KEEPING THE SNOW CLEAR OF THE LENS WAS A CHALLENGE BUT THAT EXTRA FLEECE CAP DID THE JOB INBETWEEN EXPOSURES. BACK TO THE TRUCK, ALL DOWN HILL. WHAT A GREAT MORNING. ONE I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER WHENEVER I LOOK BACK AT THIS IMAGE. THIS IS MY FAVORITE OF THE MORNING OF OUR FIRST SNOW THIS YEAR IN RKY MT NATIONAL PARK.
