Dream Lake is located in the shadow of Long’s Peak (in the distance in this photo) in Rocky Mountain National Park. This lake is a few miles away, and about 2,000 feet above, the visitor parking center but well worth the journey. The mountain water is crystal clear and filled with rainbow trout. I shot this in mid-afternoon in late September on a Nikon D7000.
Grabbed this photo in mid-afternoon in October at Rocky Mountain National Park from the trail to Bierstadt Lake. The trail climbs nearly 2,000 feet from the road to a high mountain lake.
Rocky Mountain National Park’s Trail Ridge Road climbs well above the timber line to offer spectacular views of the Colorado Rockies. This photo was taken at a stopping point near the Alpine Visitor’s Center.
Took this photograph in late afternoon at the Colorado Railroad Museum. The entire complex is packed with old engines, cars and the rare boxcar, all coated with an amazing patina.
The Chicago Metra and Amtrak lines run through Deerfield, Illinois. I captured and cross-processed this shot while visiting a customer nearby.
