I went up the Big Cottonwood Canyon last week to check on the status of wildflowers (it will be a while). At the top of the canyon is Brighton Ski Resort and a US Forest Service area - Silver Lake. Silver Lake sits at 8760 feet and is fed by melting snow. There is a one-mile path around the lake with a sedge meadow around the lake.

This set is shots of the lake starting about 6:30 AM as I walked around it.

Downloads are best.

We do live in a beautiful state, Mike. I particularly like reflections in #4 and 7. Keep shooting, my friend.

Thanks for your generous comments, Steve. I love early mornings in the mountains.

You have that right! I will keep at it, but those mountains seem to be getting higher each time I hike (LOL).

Thanks, QD, I am happy that enough snow is gone and I can get into the mountains. Come July I hope for some good wildflower shots.

It is a photo op circuit, Ken. When are you coming out?

You are a very early riser Mike, and partially still in the snow zones - I couldn't do that anymore! Like your shots, particularly with the reflections and details in the dark foreground.
