Photo and caption by Richard Smith, Jr.
People always ask me what I'm going to do on vacation and seem somewhat perplexed when I say "get up early and walk a lot in the dark". I think it's worth it. Shot right at sunrise, a blend of rosey glow and a touch of direct sun. Post in Capture with Color Efex.
Location: Sprague Lake, Rocky Mountain National Park
