Sunrise at the Maroon Bells on an icy morning near Aspen, Colorado. There were many photographers hoping to capture the amazing reflection of the Maroon Bells in the water at sunrise, but there was so much ice on the lake that the reflection wasn't showing. I accidentally fell into the water & since I was wet, I kept walking through the water, I stepped up on a rock & was amazed to look down & see the reflection because I'd gotten away from the icy edges.
