On Wind River Peak in August, the remnant snow fields are illuminated with warm early morning light. As the sun moves higher, it gradually lights up distant forests and then trees on the far shore of the lake.
Breezes pattern the lake with ripples and wavelets. The foreground rock shore reflects back the incoming waves creating delicate counterpoint patterns.
Bird songs, slaps of jumping fish and chattering squirrels add liveliness to the soothing sounds of the lapping waves.
Swallows and a Caspian Tern make cameo appearances.Close
