Wow, what a day. Just got back from the New Orleans Art Market this afternoon. All was going well until about 2:30 or so when a surprise thunderstorm came up. We got completely drenched and I lost a couple pieces to water damage… Not only is it an expensive hassle, but also it’s incredibly painful to watch literally hours of work get rained on and ruined while there’s nothing to be done but stand by and watch. Ho hum. In the end the damage was not quite as I had intentionally though, but still it’s quite frustrating (not to mention incredibly time consuming) all the same.
ANYWAY, this is another shot from the beautifully peaceful Bear Lake, in Rocky Mountain National Park. This was taken the same morning as the last one, though a few minutes later so the sun was just a bit higher and the light was just a bit harsher. Still, quite nice considering and the stillness of the water and mountain reflections are great. Also, I think the composition is likely a bit stronger in this shot than the first.
I didn’t take too many shots this particular morning, but was rather content just to sit on the shore watching the light slowly move down the mountains and then the treetops before hitting the lake…
