What a truly awesome shot! I made a road trip to Colorado a few years back - before I got serious about photography - and was blown away by the place. You've captured one aspect of its essence very well here!

This is a very powerful image. I particularly like the cloud reflections. You have done a great job in difficult exposure conditions.
