Queen's Crown Wild Flowers at a high alpine lake in Breckenridge, Colorado. This lake holds Native Colorado Greenback Cutthroat Trout which is one of the most beautiful trout in existence. The winds were absolutely relentless on this 3 day trip. My tent was folding over and it rained/hailed extremely hard, but the storms gave way to some truly magical sunsets. Sometimes patience pays off in the backcountry, and when it does it is really special.
The light was looking a bit grim on this evening. The clouds were almost all dissipated and it didn't seem like I was going to get anything captivating. I was also having a hard time finding the right composition climbing up and down the falls, but as luck would have it everything fell into place at the last minute. The pink patch of clouds popped out from behind the horizon as I came across this little reflection puddle at the base of the waterfall. This image is one of my personal favorites.
