Lake Haiyaha in RMNP. Chaos Canyon rises to the West. The ice on Lake Haiyaha is unique because of the unusual ice structures After the lake freezes in December, the under ice water continues to drain slowly through the terminal moraine. Over time, the ice surface collapses, leaving ice swells around boulders.

I thought this might be yours! I always appreciate that you stay true to your own vision -- not to mention mother nature -- and don't tart up the photos with over-the-top skies and colors.

Very nice perspective, showing the frozen river (I think it's a river).

The lines here are amazing. They draw your eyes right up thru the photo from the bottom all the way to the top.

Love those oncoming clouds, bringing more snow I guess. A very cold looking landscape. Well done.
