Tilted ice, rosy sunrise

Lake Haiyaha, RMNP

 

The rosy color on the ice is a reflection of the rosy sunrise, also visible on the illuminated snow in the upper third of the photo

 

In case you're not familiar with Lake Haiyaha, it's known for unique pyramidal ice formations that develop when the water level falls during the winter. The various rocks that dot the lake hold up large blocks of ice whose other ends sink with the declining level of the underlying lake. Other views of these unique formations can be seen here, here and here
