Summer Reflections

Sometimes the beauty of nature in the wilderness around Aspen is simply awe-inspiring

It is difficult to focus on one particular shot.

I was deep in the backcountry after a hike to a remote alpine lake. The sun was beating down through the thin air. 

My cameras and supplies were weighing down my backpack. I was tired and found a suitable granite boulder in the shade and rested against it. 

A slap on the surface of the lake woke me with a start—I had dozed off. 

A beaver in the lake was slapping the water with his tail, letting me know that this was his territory.

As I gazed at the reflections in the lake, I suddenly knew that this was the perfect shot and captured the visual essence of the moment.
