Sample 26 – Summit Lake, Mount Evans (Colorado ’08)

It’s been exactly 4 years since my brother treated my parents and I to a drive to Mount Evans, Colorado. Though it’s been so long, I could remember exactly how exhilarated I felt with my handy-dandy Nikon D40, prancing around in the near-freezing weather going shot-crazy. We were pressed for time, so most of the ‘stops’ we had were more of my brother just hitting the brakes while I took a few shots from the car window. Here in Summit Lake, however, we had the chance to step out of the car to move around a little bit.
I remember taking shots of my first glimpses of snow – I remember feeling really excited to be so close to the stuff as compared to just seeing it in a book! This was my first time to see it for real, and I was the last one in the family to be in it. 

Just before I made a mad dash back to the car I saw this puddle, and I took these pictures.

Oh, and here’s a panoramic shot of Mount Evans from a spot between Summit Lake and our car:

More to come. To God be the glory! Thank God for these opportunities to shoot in such beautiful locations… God bless you!
