While hiking the Bear Lake Loop Trail at Rocky Mountain National Park, I was drawn to a cluster of lodgepole pines raked across the water, with Mt. Wuh peaking in the distance.
Subsequently, the wind picked up, replacing the mirrored reflection with a quiver of ripples across the lake, now transforming my quiet reality into a more impressionistic interpretation of the scene.
I was captivated by the shimmering shape of sky and treeline, and inclined to shift my focus to the water, with the notion of turning nature upside down…
…and anchoring the soft glow of a landscape into a liquidscape.
