Tall as a street light

The son of man

Little suns

The beast
A meeting in the river

A flow station
I'll show you the way to where no one has been
Haiku of a dry branch
Layers & waves
ghosts of the future
Fluffy white ...
what we hide
And let the whole world wait
16th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
The Loch, Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado

On my first visit to Colorado, a friend and I decided to spend the day in Rocky Mountain National Park. We hiked up to The Loch, and sat there for upwards of an hour, just in total awe of the beauty of the place. It was May, and air was warm enough for short sleeves, but the snow just gave the area a magical look. We eventually hiked onwards towards Sky Pond but had to turn back due to the ice.
