Description

Often my photography is motivated by songs, particularly the words of John Denver's music. Although this picture is of a reservoir and not a lake, it fits with some of the lyrics from his signature song, "Rocky Mountain High": "His sight has turned inside himself to try and understand the serenity of a clear blue mountain lake". In fact I have often tried to capture images of what Denver described in his many songs about the Colorado mountains. That is my motivation.
